    The plastic bottle special was for sure the go to in Tallahassee. Not sure when you were here but in the mid to late 2000’s it was (and may still be) in every college bar. However, I was never a big Jim fan so if I had a good morning at the restaurant, yes I was an idiot that worked at a breakfast restaurant during college, I’d splurge on that JD and of course everything was mixed with ginger ale.

    If you had extra money in college we bought Jim Beam Black- throw that in cola and it’s dangerous

    I used to go to Party Source in Northern Kentucky and drop thousands of dollars on booze as social chair. Man to go back in time and ask them to throw in some special brown water on top of those orders

    Found 4 blanton's today at a gas station in WV and bought them. Not because I really wanted them, but because they were just sitting there.

    You have to publicly say nice things about penn state and their elite group of posters on TMB before we can proceed.

    My store has had a double oaked for a while now. I haven’t pulled the trigger because $70 and I find the regular woodford boring. I keep waiting for them to drop the price since it hasn’t moved much at all for a long time.

    Have had a couple double oak store picks that were delicious. The regular one though I’m not a fan of at all.

    I don’t enjoy regular maker’s but really enjoy the wood finishing series, maybe I’d have the same luck with woodford and the double oaked.

    Although if I’m being honest, the last thing I’m looking for in most bourbons is “double the oak” like Elijah 18

    This’ll be my first bottle of anything from Smooth Ambler. Seems that they get a lot of love as a good NDP. This is Indiana, so assume that means MGP.

    TL;DR - discussion flares up every time there’s a drastic drop in corporate trust. It’s big now, but that article is 18y old (right after Bernie Madoff scandal.)
