Goodness me you sound like a character from Thunderbirds. Toulouse and Turin sound like well deserved rewards!

Gotta buy my brother-in-law a Bourbon bottle for a 30 dollar sibling Pollyanna. Any recommendations?

We just did Makers for the wedding pre-game two weeks ago. I'd like something different. Knob Creek is good.

If you can find Evan Williams Single Barrel, it's my favorite in that price range. I can usually find it for $27 or less.

Evan Williams is pretty tasty. I have not tried Bulleit, so I may look for that.

Agreed. This is our regular sipping whiskey, as in it's too good to mix but not quite good enough for a special occasion.

Although Bulleit is amazing in a milkshake.

Special occasion whiskey: Bell Meade Sherry-Aged. I tasted it on a distillery tour in Nashville and need to add it to my collection. As the name suggests, they age it in sherry casks.

On the opposite of the spectrum. When it comes to an economical buzz at my local backwoods bar I find myself pounding $1.75 Busch Cans. A certain nostalgia about college with that swill.

I avoided the college cheap beer phase. Never developed a tolerance for Natty Light or Busch or similar wastes of water.

We got this Jack single barrel reserve thing when we toured the distillery about a month ago. That's now our special occasion bottle.

It's goooooooood.

And I'm not the biggest Jack fan.

Ended up buying the Bulleit. Liked the Frontier Whiskey label. Told him it was for his new frontier of marriage. Got married 2 weeks ago. Did not try it that night. The Egg Nog was flowing.

If the Bulleit is the same shit I see here, it's cheap as all hell?? I'm not even sure it comes in bottles, I think just premix cans.

Bulleit Bourbon makes a weak old fashioned.

I recently started (lightly) drinking at the age of 23. Yep, I somehow managed to go through college without having a drop of alcohol.

I had all of two glasses of Prosecco last night at a party for NYE. Then I got bored with alcohol, started just drinking water, and had a great time regardless.

I woke up with a noticeable headache from those two glasses that took most of the morning to go away. So, my question: is alcohol worth it? I don't feel completely closed-minded to it anymore, but I'm also not sure it really adds much to my life unless I go for drunkenness, which I really have no interest in doing. I do like feeling like I'm doing what everyone else is doing at social events, I guess.
