Whisky-Laden Tanker Truck Goes Up in Flames in New Jersey

This is a disaster.

A tanker in New Jersey carrying 6,000 gallons of Scotch clipped a telephone pole and hit a parked car while trying to make a turn in suburban Woodbridge yesterday. The truck flipped over on its side as a result of the incident, and either the whisky, the diesel fuel, or both ignited. No one was seriously hurt, and cocktail historian Dave Wondrich has the best take: "One hell of a Blue Blazer!" he tweeted this morning. [Home News Tribune, David Wondrich/Twitter]
