Sounds like a plan I hope my Liver is up to it.

Rocks, splash of water.
 
2011-11-07 08:47:01 PM
And what's the problem with that?
 
2011-11-07 08:48:39 PM
you're gonna need a bigger glass.
 
2011-11-07 08:49:28 PM
I'm okay with that.
 
2011-11-07 08:49:49 PM
So.....Soylent Bourbon is made out of PEOPLE??

A little Mountain Dew, maybe some strawberries. Come on. It's neat or just add a drop or two of water. Anything else and you might as well stick your dick in it

never tried with dew, when I say splash I mean drop or two, most the time the ice melts just enough to accomplish that without the splash-

/still prefers tequilla

Nah, keep it local: Makers and Ale-8 on the rocks is sublime.
 
2011-11-07 08:54:28 PM
Yea but there is still more people than teeth.
 
2011-11-07 08:58:32 PM
Then why the f*ck is it so damned expensive?
 
2011-11-07 08:59:30 PM
Holy crap, the USA is actually producing something. For export. This is good news... for the economy.
 
2011-11-07 09:00:29 PM
It is your bourbon, drink it how you like.

Could be worse, you could live in Colma California, where there are about 1,800 people living on top of 1.5 million corpses.

Overheard a funny conversation between two old guys on BART once. One of them said "We better get off here or we'll end up in Colma", to which his friend replied "Eh, we all end up in Colma."

Maker's Mark is racing to build new warehouses to store all its barrels. The bourbon inside the barrels won't be ready until 2016, but Maker's Mark is banking on a long boom.

Actually, come to think of it, a 1.75L bottle of Maker's Mark is $40 at the store down the street from me. $50+ everywhere else.

jaylectricity: Then why the f*ck is it so damned expensive?


Bouron is a damn good deal compared to malts, but that won't last if the media keeps pimping it.

Get your hands on a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel, you won't regret it.

Will do.

Neat, slightly chilled.

Thank you, Lord, for our Scottish fore-bearers with the skills to turn local grain into the nectar for which we all relish.

Amen.

Actually, distilled alcohol is a creation of Arabs about 1100 years ago.

Canadian whiskey makes a buzz, and don't cost much.

/just sayin'
//not from Canada

Oh, OK. (Pours another snifter of Makers Mark, as it happens...)

/the things I do for science.
//and my country.

butt-nuggets: Canadian whiskey makes a buzz, and don't cost much.

Higher rye content and varying water sources make a slightly harsher product. Not bad in a pinch, but...

Apeboy: Yea but there is still more people than teeth.


that implies a negative teef count... how does that work?

/nevermind. i lived in kentucky for a year. i'm pretty sure your calculations are correct. :)

The only decent way to spend a cool fall evening is with a low ball filled with Woodford Reserve on the rocks. Let it chill for a few minutes, then head out on the porch and watch the sun set with my pit bull named Moose.

So when are you neanderthals in Kentucky going to fix the problem of 53 counties being dry?
 
2011-11-07 09:30:32 PM
My liver and I are OK with this.

UNC_Samurai: So when are you neanderthals in Kentucky going to fix the problem of 53 counties being dry?


Meh. It's only a problem if you live in one.

callmeox:

Agreed. Enjoying my bottle lately. I like to use whiskey stones instead of ice, though.

Incidentally, if you find yourself in Kentucky, I highly recommend finding time to travel the Bourbon Trail (new window). I was down that way for a wedding in Nashville in October, and the girlfriend suggested we go to KY to taste bourbon.

/She's a keeper.
//Plus, once you hit every place on the trail, you get a t-shirt.
 
2011-11-07 09:35:16 PM
So there's at least one good thing about Kentucky.
 
2011-11-07 09:36:10 PM
I'm having a Rowen's Creek with a splash of water. Any thoughts one what a newbie to Kentucky should be trying around these here parts?

/Lexington for about 13 months
//Love it here
 
2011-11-07 09:46:26 PM
There is also a place where the barrels of GOOD whisky outnumber the human populace .....

www.scotlandinfo.eu (new window)

/the picture is Port Charlotte, where Bruichladdich is opening a new distillery
//moar moar!

Ale-8 -- the National Drink of Winchester!!

/There's actually a little gas station in Frankfort that still sells in the returnable bottles. Yum-o!

Either Maker's or George Dickle (white label) and Ale-8. Bonus points: a bag of Grippos BBQ. You'll fit right in!!

I can only recommend what I've tried. As I told callmeox above, go do the Bourbon Trail. Tours come with free samples, and they'll typically let you try both the standard bourbons and the higher quality, sipping varieties.

Also, if you're an ale man, you can get bourbon barrel ales in KY, which don't seem to be available much in other parts of the country. I picked up a case of Kentucky Ale (new window) when I was there in October, and it's damn fine stuff.

/You can also jaunt up to TN to see the Jack Daniels distillery, but they don't do samples.
//Silly teetotalers.
 
2011-11-07 09:56:59 PM
Bourbon! Often times it's our only redeeming quality.
 
2011-11-07 10:07:51 PM
I like these threads. After years of beer, rum, and vodka drinking, i have acquired a taste for whiskey, and Bourbon. I have had a few good, and a few 'meh' bottles of j.d. single barrel. Looking to try something new.

Smeggy Smurf: you might as well stick your dick in it


well, then, what do you recommend for a stirrer then, smartypants ?
 
2011-11-07 10:22:29 PM
Well, if this means we should be drinking bourbon, and more of it...one of my fellow farkers are going to have to volunteer to drink my portion for me. ;)

Not because I don't like bourbon...but because I am currently expecting (~34 weeks), and plan on feeding the kid myself once he comes out.

So...the farker who volunteers to drink my portion will need to do so for about a year. Lol.

They say it's going to be a cold one. The old timers will one day speak of this as the Winter of Ought-eleven, when it was so cold beer froze before it could spill on the servers.

We cant export it!

Kentucky is just stockpiling for the zombie invasion!

Notice the lack of teeth? We dont want to get bit after 99% of our neighbors go feral.......
