Re: Bourbon Thread
Far from an aficionado, but bourbon's definitely my preferred liquor. I haven't had much outside the varieties you'll find at your local liquor store, but definitely enjoy Basil Hayden's most.
I was at a bar in Louisville recently, and noticed a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year. Busted the budget and had a pour. Can't say I was overly impressed. Wasn't quite as smooth as I anticipated. It should be noted that I had been drinking some pretty robust beers for a number of hours, so I probably wasn't in the best condition to taste it, but couldn't resist.
