Houston Bourbon Drinkers....Garrison Brothers is hitting town late this week.  Don't know if that is tomorrow or Friday, but we are finally getting some of their bourbon.  Supposed to be $70 for a 750ml.

Workin on a Bottle of Devil's Cut, by Jim Beam.  It is surprisingly good.  I like it on the rocks.  I have had Basil Hayden, and it is rather nice as well.  Have been drinking Bourbon for probably 10 or 12 years.  Have had some real dogs, and some real nice ones.  You just need to try alot.  Best sampling is at a better class restaruant.  That way if you don't like it, you  are only in it for a glass, not a bottle.  I like to pair my bourbon with a good cigar.  That makes for a Nate (me) made in heaven!

Tyler, I've had the Four Roses, it's delicious!

Started drinking bourbon about a year ago, and it is by far my favorite of the major liquors. The best two I have had would certainly be Four Roses Single Barrel or Basil Hayden's. Anyone had either?

New to the crew, just switched to bourbon from scotch in the last 6 months or so. I must say, bourbon hits the spot for me. While I enjoy it on the rocks, I prefer it in a manhattan.

From my wife's parents I received money, books, and bourbon. It was an amazing Christmas.

Welcome Atlas... I quess I'm just not man enough to drink it neat, and I don't think I'll ever be, well unless I dont' have ice. Hey I can do it, I just like it on the rocks better. LOL

Just joined... proud Bourbon drinker for about three years now. Makers is an easy favourite, and I'm proud to say I recently "graduated" up to drinking my bourbon neat. What a fine way to live.
