I may be wrong but I think he's referring to the issue some people have with jewish distributors who don't sell their chometz

if its a distribution issue, why specifically bourbon? are there more jewish bourbon distributors than scotch distributors?

thats a whole separate issue. the issue i was talking about is the fact that many of the bourbon distilleries are owned by jews who did not sell their chometz. when crc put out their list they knocked off a whole bunch of popular bourbons. I have not heard from any of the big poskim any heter to buy them. over time this will not be a issue as they all sell their chometz now. but we are quite a few years away from that.

When you say "many" do you mean Roiv?

when I was in Kentucky the chabad rabbi told me that there used to be a few distilleries owners by the same Jew that didn't sell the chometz, he said he worked hard on it and now they do. Dont remember the names of the distilleries anymore.

If Roiv are Jewish, then you have to be concerned, because it's a Roiv on a D'rabonon.  On the other hand....

+1 he told me the same thing.they own a big distilleries which produce a whole bunch of smaller brands. main one being buffalo trace.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_Trace_Distillery.  which answers the roiv question. it is not a safek they know exactly which ones are jewish and which ones sold their chametz and what years.

No one said it was new. Just that this was the first kashrus organization to follow that shita.
Might be the first in North America, but KLBD (London) and KA (Australia) have always allowed all scotch.

No, I haven't.  I usually reserve that for some strong bourbon like Bookers.
