“Humor is a universal solvent against the abrasive elements of life.” Parental guidance followed by the original, respected, and memorable Alan K. Simpson. Forthright and funny. Family and friendship. Defining principles that inform a disarming approach to all opportunities and challenges. Army Infantry, State Legislature, US Senate, Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution, and countless others made better by his wit and wisdom. Cody, Wyoming, and the United States are lucky to have him. And we are proud to honor him with a bourbon of character and distinction fit for a legend. Aged for 7 years.
