Re: GOING DRAPPING PLEASE CALL FOR AN INTERVENTION!

Ok I started on this Bourbon/Whiskey thing about a year ago. Every time I would go duck hunting my buddy would stay over and we would have a shot (or two or three) of Whiskey the night before the hunt. It makes getting up at 0 dark much more bearable. We ran the gamut of Jack Daniels straight, Gentleman Jack, Jack Green Label. All good in my book. Then my buddy brought over a bottle of Knob Creek, very nice, a bit of a bite, but still a step above the Jack. Then we went on a road trip and ended in the middle of God knows where in the Adirondacks with only one liquor store between there and the Canadian border. Ended up with a bunch of trial size Maker's Mark. Really liked that. Stayed with Makers for about 3 months then the Jim Beam Devil's Cut came out. I bought into the hype and bought a bottle. VERY Good.

 

My palette soon tired of Devils Cut and I shopped around and one of my friends recommended Buffalo Trace. By far better than all the other bourbons and whiskeys, smooth without being watered down, just enough of a good smooth kick without burning (much different than Jack) full bodied a hint of carmel, vanilla and cherry. most excellent.

How about you tell me why people like bourbon at all....

Add this to the list of alcohols I don't understand. I get vodka, I get tequila, I don't get scotch. Add bourbon. More to come in the future I'm sure.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $22.200, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Chase CSP (4/14) $12,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Chase Freedom (12/12) $5,000

Bourbon is an acquired taste. Vodka is just windshield washer fluid that knows somebody, Tequila is just clear drain cleaner and Gin is a lab experiment gone wrong. Whiskey comes from the gods. I'm sure the good Lord is a pipe smoker and a whiskey drinker.

Thanks for the review, and thanks for the laugh! You hit it on the head here. I will buy a bottle when I get home from the ME for R&R next week, and have a drink in honor of your 6 months in the garden. Here's to hoping I make it to 6 months as well.
