Today I received an email from John Little of Smooth Ambler distillery. John told me that Truman Cox, master distiller of A. Smith Bowman distillery passed away yesterday. I have reviewed some of Bowman’s products and talked to Truman a number of times. He was a gem of a guy, like most that make the whiskey business their home.
As recent as 4 weeks ago I had a quick chat with Cox about his port finished bourbon that I will be reviewing soon. He was very excited about how things were headed for the distillery. So what a shock to find this out today.
Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.
