    Okay you animals. Here's the link to last year's National Bourbon Day thread. Keep it going.

    Tennessee horse piss drinkers are welcome to visit as your drink is indeed a bourbon.

    Canadians can GTFO.

    Happy NBD.

    Impressive.

    I’ve become a big fan of Bullet Bourbon.

    I'll post a pic of my "bar" when I get home. I'll probably have some of this (does being finished is a sherry barrel make it no longer bourbon?)

    Just some easy recommendations for the newbies just looking to pick something up for the day:


    If you like something sweet like I do: Makers Mark, Buffalo Trace, Four Roses. I drink all of these on the regular

    If you want something with a little spice: Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek

    If you want to just get drunk any which way possible: Jim Beam, Evan Williams.



    This will all be easy to find except maybe Buffalo Trace since it is very popular right now. All affordable and under $30 for a 1/5th

    Jim Beam and Evan Williams will be under $20 (ODD special)

    I always get the handle of Jim Beam.. its like $28 bucks.. It can last me two weeks give or take if I'm not going bonkers.

    Can't beat that value.

    I had a drink at the new distillery a couple days ago that was pretty good. Rye, sour mix, and red wine, I believe.

    A friend from Roanoke brought me some as a Christmas present. Whiskey mag bourbon of the year in 2017.

    Got it a couple of weeks ago in Bowling Green for $34 a bottle. Prices in Bowling Green was way less than most places. Plus I got to drive the CNM track. Good day.

    Ha, something I never did back in the regular beer consumption day was check abv, but now when we are out at a restaurant and I am choosing a craft beer, I am guilty of looking at high abv.
