Another fun fact: On average, the barrels of bourbon are more educated than the inhabitants.

That's not strange, that's being prepared.

BKITU: maxheck: cretinbob

Yes, but 75% of the bourbon isn't inbred

Wrong tack.... Name a bourbon that doesn't name inbred ancestry.

Four Roses
Wild Turkey
Buffalo Trace
Ancient Age
1776


Maker's Mark?

And you call yourself a FARKer.

CJ The Rev: dolphinsgonwild: Wife and I went through Kentucky. Stayed the night in some Podunk county. Couldn't get a drink if I put a gun to someone's head. Had to drive two counties over to find a truck stop restaurant that served beer.

I had the same experience.  Fortunately I had stopped in Louisville and picked up wine and bourbon before travelling on.  The hotel couldn't find a corkscrew for the wine so I had to go to a store and buy one (why does the dollar store sell corkscrews in a dry county????)

Bourbon was my first whisky experience (as an adult looking for taste, not some kid looking for a drunk), then I tried scotch to compare the flavours/experiences.  Then someone told me that Canadian whisky is world class, so I tried the award winner this year (Corby's Lot 40).  It turns out that it is VERY good.

Ironically, I lived down the street from that distillery for the first 19 years of my life.  I still (bad pun intended) live in Canada and visit the area regularly.  Next time I am down there I am going on a tour of the place, and telling them how much I like their stuff.


They use them to pull the bung from the whiskey barrels

JoieD'Zen: olddinosaur: Drove through Kentucky last summer.  Not one, not two, but THREE big distilleries, all in the same county.

When we drove through there years ago it was Sunday and no booze. WTH people?


When you have that much bourbon available a mandated day off is just good sense.

Took a tour of Buffalo Trace back in March. They let us stick our fingers in the giant vat. So in a decade, you'll be sippin' mah finger whiskey.

/also sampled the raw "white dog". All germs=dead
