      I'm not sure that I agree with your comments re. carbon Distilleries
      such as Jack Daniels when they make a special Bourbon think highly
      enough of the carbon treatment process to declare it on the label, also
      there are two steps to the way a carbon works the first is the removal
      of fusels which I agree in a good quality still should be almost
      unnecessary, however carbon still has a role to play in polishing the
      alcohol, knocking any rough edges off it and improving the mouth feel.
      I am not sure why you are having a problem posting to one list. I just
      send the message from my mail programme. Are you sending it from the One
      list site ?
