    I'm surprised we do not have a thread dedicated to Bourbon's

    It can be educational.

    I see no reason to not include Irish whiskies, which I am currently enjoying. Powers Gold Label.
    I was just introduced to Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, which my SIL likes, so I keep it around. Both are mild compared to a Bourbon. For Bourbon i like to keep Evan Williams around. bang for the buck I enjoy it more then say Wild Turkey, which is harsh.

    For me, I am drinking this in a glass alone to taste. When socializing it is over ice. Good ice. Funny thing is my older son has gone way past me in the bourbon world. His budget allows him to seek out the subtle differences.
    To be clear. When one mixes these artistic presentations with sweet soda or any flavor altering additions to the glass they may as well be drinking CC or Windsor blends or what not.

    I just found out Costco has three different Kirkland brand Bourbons. Anyone???

    Don't know much about bourbon, so I'll just go start a thread about, "how to maintain a healthy liver". :) Moderation, that's the key. :cool:

    And you wonder what the problem with this country is? :confused: It's alcohol man, it's a major problem, and it shows in his posting, and yours too. A little is ok, any more than that becomes a problem. :cool:

    I don't worry too much about dying. I know I'm going to die, I think the game is to delay it as long as you can. The one thing I do worry about is becoming incapacitated, where I would not have any control of my destiny. Something like a stroke, I find pretty scary. I've been more places and done more things than most people. I've drank my fair share of alcohol, over the years, but it never was something I HAD to do. I've had some friends that HAD to drink, and there is not much you can do, with a person that has that addiction. There is little or nothing to be gained by drinking, and I would never try to glamorize it, that's all. Go ahead, "party till you puke. :)
