Re: Bourbon Thread
I absolutely adore bourbon. I am still very much in the learning phases of bourbon drinking I'd say but I have a bar with about 25-30 different bottles on it downstairs.
My favorite at the moment is Eagle Rare 10 year old [comes from Buffalo Trace]. I will take it along on a trip in a flask sometimes [I'm not an alcoholic I swear].
Do you partake in the various tours of the bourbon trail? I've found those very enjoyable myself.
There are a few mainstream/mid level types that I enjoy that I may or may not be chided for, but Makers is always good. I also enjoy the Four Roses single barrel as well. I had an Elijah Craig 18 year old that I loved when I first started to get into bourbon but as the last year or two have passed and I've developed my taste a bit more it's a bit off over all. I can't quite explain it, but its not as good as it once was for me.
For me though most bourbons fall into one of two categories. A drinker or a mixer. Things like Devil's Cut are just about undrinkable so they end up in the mixer category whereas the Jeffersons Reserve is definitely a drinker for me.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
