Did anyone see this? I missed it but would love to know what Bourbon's they used. I saw a quick screen shot and it looked like there was some Maker's (regular and 46) and some Blanton's (I didn't watch the video clips in the link below yet, but they may show more).

Missed it, but I love that show and will have to look for that episode on repeat.

In addition to Makers (how could you tell they had both....I just assumed the Makers was standard) and Blanton's, they had a Makers White Dog (at least assumed it was Makers since it was in their trademarked Red Wax Dripping bottles) and Bookers (which Alton misidentified as an unfiltered wheat bourbon).

Just watched it tonight ..... (a link to a avi file is under the "Bourbon in the Movies" thread) ..... but I did not see any 46 bottles. Kevin Smith was one of the judges.

My bad. I saw a blurry picture of the table and thought I saw some 46, but I must have been mistaken.

I'm finally watching it now. Unless that bottle with black wax is a wheat Willet of some sort, or they got some uncut stuff from Julian, it's definately not a wheater.

My TV gf Allison Sweeny (yes I watch Days of our Lives, it started in college, ok?) said her husband is "an aficionado". So I'm calling you out, Mr. Allison Sweeny. Show yourself!

I loved Brown's comeback to that: Down in Georgia we call aficionados plain old drunks, we don't put on airs (or something close to that).

BTW, if you look closely when they show the bottles you will see the familar "B" on the neck of the bottle confirming that it is Bookers

I enjoyed it as I think we all would.

I could not help but notice that both made bourbon ice cream, but I misssed if they cooked off the alcohol before putting it in the machine. I will need to watch again and I plan on doing just that.
