    Had the oddest bourbon last night…. 110 proof from NC m with an age statement that said aged at least 7 MONTHS. Was super smooth but tasted like grass, totally confusing.

    i think i've been bitten by the bug, something finally clicked after ~25 yrs of drinking shitty bourbon

    i went from, 'I will tolerate this to get drunk,' to 'I cannot get enough of this' , just in the past few months

    I like whiskey but I love you guys more.

    Im admittedly a little sensitive to the subject because I’ve had two close friends develop alcohol abuse problems in the past two years.

    I know I’ve said this before but whiskey has made me drink less. I definitely used to abuse alcohol in my college years all the way up to early 30s. These days I have a pour every so often, maybe one or two times a week. I’ve also realized I have no use for buying daily drinkers. I have enough good stuff to last me years at the pace that I drink.

    Yeah I only drink stuff I actually enjoy the taste of, but on the flipside I usually am a little tuned up after 1 or 2 glasses of barrel proof

    I love bourbon so much that it pretty much all tastes good.

    Except Woodford Reserve. Fuck Woodford Reserve. tjsblue

    I'm deathly afraid of flying (I know I know I've tried everything, even xanax just makes it so I can't hold my eyes open but I can't sleep and still terrified) so when I fly I just get loaded. I can't even mix woodford with coke, its all Jack in the air.

    I wish they still offered crown.

    I drink 2-3 times a week 1-2 pours each time. I’ll never be able to drink everything I have, but honestly I get more enjoyment sharing it with friends. I need more of you guys to come visit to appreciate some of it

    Oh it's not a competition. Educating my neighbors on how the same bourbon can taste differently by aging or proofing it. Also curious how similar/different the store picks are

    To me, woodford is just bland with nothing really special in the flavor, to me. New store had a rare breed for $48 today, so that was nice.

    Ive similarly stopped buying “daily drinkers” like dathalfnukkahd said. I do need to admit that my “1-2 pours” need to be put into context that I’m pouring more aggressively than what a 1.5oz jigger would.

    Someone gifted me a 375ml of Basil Hayden.

    Drinks like water, easy gateway pour for someone new to bourbon.

    Now look here at this OGD114 bottle… that guy right there? That’s Basil.
