When Justices Agree to Disagree

Mr. Justice Black, with whom Mr. Justice Goldberg joins, dissenting while delighting in smokey, delicious whiskey.

Although I was brought up to believe that Scotch whisky would need a tax preference to survive in competition with Kentucky bourbon, I never understood the Constitution to require a State to give such preference. (My dissenting Brother asks me to say that this statement does not necessarily represent his views on the respective merits of Scotch and bourbon.)
