My brother loves bourbon. I've tried about 25+ over the years..including the expensive ones and the comemerative ones.

They are all too sweet and syruppy for me.

I'd take scothch or vodka any day

Wife picked my up a bottle of Envy the other day as well. Had high hopes for it, but it's much to mild and sweet for me.

I like my bourbon like my women.

Ok...children:

Burbon/Whiskey is typically distilled through a corn mash: Corn=SUGAR through distillation.

Thus, a "sweet" flavor.




You don't likey...stick to "single malt" whiskeys'.








You're welcome.

Been putting it off for weeks but I finally got a bottle of Woodford in the decanter last night.

I can hear it summoning me. It beckons.

Anyway, who here keeps their bourbon in a decanter? Nobody? You classless bastards.

I picked up a bottle of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Getting in to my first pour now, it's very oaky, as advertised, but it doesn't seem to have an overly strong charred taste. It's very flavorful and balanced. Smooth, too.

Edit: So you can get an idea of the color here's a pic of the bourbon in question. (Also pictured: 1 pint of Reef Donkey APA by Tampa Bay Brewing Co.)

It was $53.99, so around 12-15 dollars more.

Glass surface.

And yeah, MB it's worth it for a bottle. I killed half of my bottle last night, woke up with a hangover but not a terrible one.

Had a few glasses of Breckenridge bourbon at a party yesterday. Excellent. Extremely smooth, young whiskey. Aged 2 years in new oak. I really didn't expect much of a Colorado "Bourbon", but I was blown away.

Interesting read. Never seen that bottle before.

Last paragraph of the review begs a question...

Do you gents let your bourbon sit 5 minutes like the author? I tend to blow into the glass to get the alcohol fumes out before smelling and then drinking mine.

5 minutes is a big ****ing stretch.

It's the equivalent of the dude in "Sideways", plugging his EAR while inhaling the aroma of the wine; it's being a pretentious prick.

Blow out the fumes (like you mentioned)...and that's fine.
