George Washington's retirement at Mount *Rushmore*?!?!?!

A new low in CigarAficionado reporting. Right up (down?) there with the Cognac feature written by a guy who apparently had never been to Cognac, but wanted to make it look like he had been.

Ouch, you got me. But at least Washington's head has been on Mount Rushmore longer than his retirement at Mount Vernon. Thanks to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, you can visit his refurbished stillhouse at Mount Vernon in Virginia and even buy a replica of the rye he made. A service you won't get at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.
