With that title, I thought it would be about bourbon. ;)

Good stuff. I'm thinking about it.

What an excellent essay! Thank you for pointing it out.

In college, one of my professors was asked what grade to give an organic chem problem which had produced the wrong product. He looked at it, and said "That's elegant". Grad student "Yes, but it's the wrong answer" Professor "Yes, but it's elegant", and gave it full marks.

So that's the word I've always used for the property the writer refers to. Elegance.
