My latest experiment.
I love gin but also love bourbon.
I'm making a juniper, anise, lemongrass, grapefruit peel infused Bourbon.

Will it be Herbon or Burgin?

Nope. Not Scotch.
Left out dirt, bandaids and ashtray.

No, he's made Pink Doe (or is it D'oh!) - KSBW infused with pink grapefruit, juniper, anise, and lemongrass. :grin:

:lol: I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way. I am always willing to give it a try, but so far not my cup of whisky. Good luck with your experiment, sounds interesting for sure.

As a Scotch lover, I feel compelled to correct this misinformation - it should be BANDAGES, not Bandaids (TM), and preferably bandages that have been used at least once. :rolleyes:

No, I meant Band Aids. Chorophenolic.

Nothing smells like a genuine, trademarked, original, flesh colored, Band-Aid. (Except bad beer and good scotch)

Ah. I stand corrected.

Ahh haaa! missed it by that much !....!

Actually it sounds very good. I actually like to throw some good ole bourbon into Margarita mix from time to time. Bourbon actually seems to go very well with citrus flavors. The juniper and anise adds a whole new dimension I've never tried. I gotta try that. I'll leave out the dirt, bandaids and ashtray out on the first try. I can always add the other stuff later. :grin:

I have yet to see a post in this thread that isn't completely awesome.

Doesn't matter. As Stuart Rankin would say, if it's not Scottish, it's crap.

Oh, in that case...


Ah. I stand corrected.

...so do I.

Sadly, all good things must end at some point.

Two lessons learned.
1. Anise Seed is very strong and small amounts add lots of black licorice flavor
2. Anise Seed is very strong and small amounts add lots of black licorice flavor

Besides that the vanilla, lemon and juniper balance is FANTASTIC.

I love this stuff. I may be the only one. (Again!) but this is interesting enough to try again with less anise.

I made a new batch with 3 more pints of bourbon, double dose of lemon, vanilla bean and lemon rind.

Will mingle the new with the over-anise batch by adding the anise batch in increments till I get a good balance on the anise.
I love the anise note, but not in excess. (Like EC18 on steroids)

Tomorrow, after mingling, I'll make a bourbini with white vermouth.

So what goes in a bourbini, definitely not olives?
I'm thinking candied lemon.
