    It takes 50 years to make bourbon because you have to grow the trees that make the barrels.

    It takes four and a half billion years to make an apple, because you have to fuse the hydrogen atoms in the heart of a distant sun which then must blow up in a supernova, scattering its enriched guts...

    Man, Elijah Craig is awesome, can't believe I passed on it so many times before. 25-30 bucks, I think I paid 30 because I walked 50 feet to get it. Pretty cheap for 12 years old. Winter is when straight neat whiskey tastes perfect as is, can't beat it. And you can drink pretty much anything. Peated scotch in summer? Not so much.

    I had a mad hankerin for peat, so I just walked to the corner and picked up a hobo size JW Black. Ah, the peat.

    What's "hobo size"? A fifth? Handle? Or one of those functional-alcoholics "personal" sized bottles?

    It's fucking tiny. What a ripoff. And there's hardly any peat in this. I tried to get my fix without buying a 50 dollar bottle but it just can't be done. Then again it's early and once you have a glass of Lagavulin the night's over. You won't be tasting anything else but campfire ash the rest of the night.

    For a nice taste cheap Bourbon.. Trader Joe's brand is an excellent choice. For around $15 a bottle, and nice taste.. can't go wrong.

    In case you needed something to get through the holidays with family.

    The blended scotch is bad. Has a Glenlivet taste but it's so pale it grosses me out. They need to add some caramel coloring to it.

    Half price whiskey at Twisted Spoke on NYE; probably going to avoid that.

    Prediction: 90% of whiskey sold is Jameson and Fireball

    I don't even think they serve Fireball. They have a pretty decent collection of bottles. We went there last year for half price drafts and had a grand old time.

    No shit Sherlock. I don't know many places that keep their specials on NYE thought. Hence why I looked into going there.

    Got a bottle of the Double Black. Great value for $30 at this liquor store in Dyer. It's usually like $44.99 in Illinois. Not worth that price. This shit is like the Black but a lot more peat and a bit more oily in the mouth.

    That shit goes great with chocolate for some reason. Shoulda picked up some cocoa bitters while you were there.

    Actually, it was Larceny I picked up.

    That sounded weird. A 750 runs 45, I didn't think they made handles of it. Larceny is a cheap wheater that's a decent value. I like wheaters for Hattans

    Larceny handle was $37.99. $45 for a fifth: :what:

    Zoso *autistic screeching*

    AE is about 45 for a fifth. Larceny is like low mid 20s IIRC

    One glass with egg nog, on my second glass right now, expecting to drift off to sleep in a nicely fucked up state in about 45 minutes.

    Glass of Nadurra and a Basil Hayden's + bought a vodka for someone else $21.50. Hicksville FTW

    Those were huge double pours too. Too fucking much.

    Had my first day taste of Buffalo Trace last night. Smoothest stuff I've ever quaffed.

    I don't care for the flavor profile but it's a great value.

    It was decision time in the bourbon aisle today as I cosidered all of the fine deliciousness arrayed before me. I wanted something different and I kept coming back to the Bulleit. $20 for a bottle was charming enough for me. My first take was how it danced on my palette. If pop rocks were bourbon, it would be Bulleit. I rather liked that intensity on my buds. I made an Eastside and it also has a happening to it. I'm going to enjoy killing this bottle of KY spirits!

    I bought Bulleit 10 year with my Christmas money. Stopped at my mom's and my grandma left a card with 40 dollars in it, so I spent it on booze.

    I don't recommend it. I actually like l'orange better than this. It's kind of hot for 10 year old. And rye up the ass.

    This is a very pedophilic comment
