      Sure, this is not a proper Old Fashioned.  This cocktail is a riff on the Old Fashioned. We too are traditionalists when it comes to an Old Fashioned.  Though I agree in principal with the article you reference, there are few things I do take umbrage with such as making ice optional or using simple syrup rather than a sugar cube.  Bartenders have been riffing on the Old Fashioned for years, it is one things that makes it all so fun!
