About This Club

As the title says, this is the place for Bourbon folk.

  1. What's new in this club

    I used to drink mine neat, but recently have switched to one or two ice cubes

    Totally agree. Can't remember what it was, may have been Weller 12 year, that I game my son-in-law and he asked for a Coke. No way. Beam and other wells get ginger ale from me. Your first post made it sound like you always drank it with Coke. But if you are drinking better ones neat then you are indeed an aficionado.

    To each their own. And to each occasion, it's own. When I'm drinking Beam, or well bourbon, I'll usually cut it. When I am drinking something higher end I agree, it's rocks or neat. Problem is, I've been drinking more well stuff when it comes to Bourbon lately.

    It’s not one of my favorites, but this was a very old bottle, and my buddies had never had it before. It went well with the BBQ.

    I tried the 23 many years ago in a flight. I was new to bourbon at the time and did not enjoy it. Tasted mostly like oak from what I remember. But my tastes have changed over the years and I now drink stuff I wouldn't touch 10 years ago. It would be interesting to try it again.

    Neat or a rock or two.

    I like very high proof bourbons with a few small rocks, just enough to chill the bourbon and it open it up...or neat. Booker’s is among my favorites. Earlier tonight I shared a bottle of Pappy 23 with some old college buddies...we drank it neat.

    Don't mean to sound snobbish, but if you're putting Coke in it you aren't quite a bourbon drinker yet. My son-in-law was one of those but when he wanted to add Coke to some of my better bourbons he quickly learned that that didn't fly. He'd learned to appreciate it on the rocks or neat.

    Have never had any of those. Will give them a try when I get a chance. Do you do those neat, 1 rock or on the rocks?
  11. CousinRicky

    Favorite way...

    Depends on the bourbon. Some I prefer neat, like Blantons, EH Taylor Single Barrel. Most I throw an ice cube or 2 in. And then some I do on the rocks. Just getting back from a bourbon dinner at the Rez at the Hard Rock. Bourbons weren't anything to write home about but the food was outstanding. The bourbons included Makers, Makers 46, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek Rye (not technically a bourbon), Knob Creek Single Barrel and Knob Creek Honey. Don't have the menu in front of me but the first 2 courses were seafood with the second one being lobster with something smokey, maybe bacon. Then there were some lamb chops and a tenderloin and the dessert was a monkey break with a meringue and cream anglaise. Let me tell you, the food didn't suuuuuck.

    Football 🏈 in Chicago or Bourbon 🥃 in Bardstown?

    That last one looks like a good time.

    I wrote cut, but it's really usually just enough to taste .
  20. NAS Gone to Paradise

    Favorite way...

    Neat, or with a rock or two. What are you cutting?
  21. NAS Gone to Paradise

    Evan Williams Black Label is the best...

    Another good cheap bourbon is Very Old Barton, especially the 100 proof BIB @ $12, but I doubt you’ll find in Florida. VOB 86 proof goes for $9, and the 80 proof at $7

    What's your favorite way to drink bourbon? I usually go for double, on the rocks, with a splash of coke. Talking just enough to cut it.

    Evan Williams Black Label is the best...

    Best cheap bourbon in my opinion is Jim Beam Black as week as 4 Roses Small Batch, both go 20-25$
  24. NAS Gone to Paradise

    Evan Williams Black Label is the best...

    Been there about ten times, about the only thing they don’t pour for tastings is EV 23 year old.
  25. NAS Gone to Paradise

    Evan Williams Black Label is the best...

    Give EV 1783 a try. Another cheapo you may like is Benchmark 8.
