Great Wooded South: Whiskey Fudge shines for the family
Big Al's travelogue and the sign, Whiskey Fudge, brings to mind the man known as Bourbon Fudge, a kinsman of Billy Joe Fudge who created a magical cough killing and nerve settling potion rotchere in dry still Adair County, KY
See Comments re photo 48231 Big Al visits Lynchburg TN Dry County Still General Store
By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry
I think Whiskey Fudge is a distant cousin of mine but didn't know he was living that far down in the Great Wooded South. When he was living here, he was known as Bourbon Fudge. At any rate, he's living proof that the family name continues to shine.
When he lived around these parts he always had a nagging cough that "store bought" elixirs just never seemed to put a dent in. So "Bb" as we called him, was always on a quest to find just the right honey with which to concoct his magical cough killing and nerve settling potion. "Bb" didn't have a Dr. in front of his name but he always insisted that any persistent cough was caused by the tightening of a couple of nerves and that any cough syrup worth its salt just had to have a healthy component of nerve relaxer in the ingredients.
Of course honey is not the relaxing ingredient but for those novices who have been using refined sugar, Bob White Syrup or sorghum molasses instead of the finest of honey, you must realize that "Bb" decades of research had led him to the conclusion that honey was the catalyst of choice. Every great formula must have a proper catalyst as "Bb" always said, like dynamite has to have a fuse and gasoline has to have a spark.
Well, I guess I need to head down to Lynchburg to see cousin "Wk" as he is known around that area nowadays. I would have already been down that way, but I was somewhat apprehensive given the name of that infamous community.
Anytime I hear anything about lynching, well, it just sort of puts my head to spinning. - Billy Joe Fudge
