Bourbon,
« on: 13 Aug 2008, 17:50 »

We have talked about booze/liquor/food in the past and it has always been decent reading and listing of nice things people like.
Who wants to talk about bourbon? I know we all like bourbon.

I am drinking bulleit bourbon right now. I bought it at the liquor store kind of in the removed corner of town, because I must buy a new brand when I see it in Canada. It's a fairly sweet, simple, slightly syrupy textured drink. It is not going to win the mantle of 'my favorite', but I would definitely buy it again. It is a nice bottle to have on your shelf, it does everything a good bourbon should do, without having any complications. The lack of anything distinct or interesting is what relegates it to it's position of nothing amazing, but it is easily worth buying and will replace Jim Beam white as my 'bourbon to have on hand if I have nothing else'.

You mention Vodka and I'm fucking punching you in the face.

My mother never had to teach me common sense.
Also I will punch you in the face if I ever meet you. Remember this day. You will someday rue it.

After drinking it for a little while, it is, indeed, kind of boring. It is tasty from the first sip, at the cost of not being very much fun later on.

Slickydear, I'm trying as hard as i can not to be a asshole about people who drink vodka and you're not making it easier. But otherwise, bourbon = YES. It makes my tongue numb.

P.S. Thanks for reminding me to throw out the empty bottle of JB hiding behind my window curtains.

Vodka is pretty good. I have not explored it in too much depth because the differences between are not worth researching (field research, not reading). I have a bottle of Wyborowa around if my liquor shelf is stocked.

I still do not get rum. I drink straight things mostly, and find I've never found one rum to be that much better than another in a mix. Not saying the quality has no effect, just that it doesn't seem too interesting.

Bulleit is, strangely, the only fairly decent bourbon sold in any of my locals.
I tend to lean toward scotch though, or just skip it altogether and go for a pint of Gem, which is delicious real ale. Or even Wild Hare, its springier, fresher brother.

Although I think my favourite (by favourite I mean the memories, or rather lack of them, associated with it) is Early Times... or as it came to be known in a small chunk of west coast america for a short time... Old Cock.

Man no offense but I don't like you all that much. Jagermeister is kind of lame. I am not going to bother making fun of it because making fun of jagermeister is not funny anymore to those who found it funny and it serves no purpose of mockery if the mocking is not perceived.

I would actually take JD over JB. Better to sleep with her OK cousin than her little (minor) sister. After Booker's, Jimmy white is reminiscent of something great but it never fulfills, unless you're far along with whiskey.
Like her little sister.

Fuck Bourbon.

There is something about bourbon that makes me feel great when I smell it. Scotch is good, but it does not have that kind of genuine warming I feel from bourbon, and it is not always really tasty, unless you get some nice, costly stuff. Which I can't afford.

I am okay with Jager, myself. I totally understand why people generally do not like it though.

Scotchs and bourbons are basically the realm of alcohol I have not plumbed. Once I have a steady paycheck again, I intend to go buy soem scotch, but bourbon never really crossed my mind. Perhaps I shall consider it.

Ozy don't start with Jim Beam, repost before purchase and we will advise.

There are excellent local brews all over Ontario (and Canada) you just have to find them. It takes a little work but is so worth the effort.

Khar what is a good bottle of scotch that is no more expensive than johnny walker black? I will buy it.

Split a bottle of Jim Beam with a friend. Wonder what the fuss is about. Drink till you forget.

Buy some Maker's Mark half a year later, think it's really fucking amazing (a position you will downgrade to 'really good' after the marketing buzz and pretense has worn off).

Kill a man for his Booker's Bourbon. Realize nothing will ever be this good again.

Buy new whiskey and wonder why someone made it the way they did.

That is how you start. You do not stop.

Given that I live in Kentucky, I'm sure I'm supposed to put on a white suit in the style of Colonel Sanders and challenge you to duel with pistols over such a statement, but being as I wasn't born here and don't drink that much Bourbon or Scotch, I can't muster the will to care that much.

Beam is smoother than Jack in the way that water is smoother than Jack.
Jack is really just a liquor that does not go down nice, and that is it's character. Better to be a bit offensive and honest than just mellowed out and dull.

We talked about bourbon a while ago.  As a result I tried drinking very good quality bourbon.  I did taste the "vanillas and caramels" and such in the background, but mostly it still had the goddamn fucking goddawful bourbon taste right up front and centre.

I am sorry, bourbon-lovers, I guess that I am just not into bourbon.
