Wonder if you could ram it up your snout to really experience the full nose of bourbon?

The question was raised in my office as to what effect it would have on taste? Any thoughts?

You ain't "whiffed" bourbon till ya nosed it over a 14,000 gallon processing tank :grin: :grin: :grin:

Back during the days when I gave "personal" tours of the bottlinghouse..I'd "sneak" my guest to the "tank room"...mind ya...this is not a room kinda place..it's a entire department, with a upper tank room a lower tank room, processing and a sugar shack...We have lingo at HH---gives you a direct reference point of where you are located...There's a tank farm (outside--behind HH) too :grin: Tanks and tanks and tanks full of spirits...

Sometimes the :70358-devil: :70358-devil: :70358-devil: comes to play when I give tours :grin: :bigeyes: :grin:

I took a good friend (SB.com) on one of these tours...Sneaked him right in...up the stairs and down the stairs to the lower tank room...To kinda give a reference how big these tanks are?...You could probably fit a couple of small cars in them :grin: :grin: To inspect the contents inside there are "cat walks" almost two stories off the ground around each of them---When you turn the valve it blows air thru the lines for a accurate reading...and it builds a little pressure too :70358-devil: :70358-devil: :70358-devil: ...I lifted the lid and asked my buddy to take a whiff :grin: :grin: :grin: He did, and Gezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...I thought he was gonna pass out! :bigeyes: :bigeyes: :bigeyes: Good thing he didn't...I don't think I could have caught him :bigeyes:

He said---along with a few choice *#@(&%!* ---cleared his sinuses instantly :slappin: :slappin: :slappin:

I remember the first time they did that to me :slappin: :slappin: :slappin: Yep, the fumes threw me back but the "nearly passed out" came from hitting the back of my head on one of the low pipes...Good grief :slappin: :slappin: It wasn't funny till the "goose egg" stop hurting :slappin: :slappin:

Memorable times that last a lifetime :grin: :grin: :grin:

Has anyone tried an AWOL device? I've really been wanting to give it a shot for a while now but I don't have a bar by me that has one and I'm not gonna spend $300 on something Iíll probably use once. It does look like a stupid idea since it sounds like you only enjoy the effect of the spirit and not the taste of it. I had asthma when I was younger and occasionally used a nebulizer, these look like they do the exact same thing. Maybe I should dig it out and load the medicine chamber up with some liquor? :)

Back in the old days, I had many experience with ultra-sonic nebulizers. I'm assuming this along that same line. It would be a wasted experience, unless you were just wanting to find a way to abuse drugs. This has nothing to do with enjoying, it has everything to do with making money.

So what's next? The Home Bourbon Enema Kit? A bottle of bourbon, Anal Spirit Injector, and custom made Pepcycle Original Bardstown Gold Plated Brisket Plug?:woohoo:

Dane,
I can never tell when you're not joking, but this really was practiced by the Mayans in antiquity. A "Secrets of the Past" type of show I saw a while back told that they would get very, very drunk on their fermented drinks (which I guess would be similar to pulque) past the point of throwing up, so they would use something similar to a frat boy's beer bong to keep ingesting more alcohol from the other end. I'm not sure if this was at parties or religious ceremonies, common or rare, but scenes showing the "beer enema" are carved into some of their bas reliefs.

And we thought the Mayans were just cerebral stargazers and mathematicians until the last 20 year or so.

This totally changes my perception of the Mayans!

Back in the 70's, some very far out junkies "mainlined" vodka, injecting it into their blood vessels like an IV in a hospital. I believe that was Janis Joplin's fatal OD.

What I've read about the vaporizer is that it gives a quick but short buzz. However, my feeling is, why bother? I'd much rather savor a glass of bourbon, or Scotch, or a favorite cocktail, or a good beer!

If you really want to use this gadget, just fill it with cheap vodka - no sense wasting good booze.

It seems like a gimmick and, at the price, I'm surprised there's a market for it. I know some things are cool because they're expensive, but this seems too geeky to be cool under any circumstances.

I'm sure the manufacturers are praying that more government bodies jump on the bandwagon of trying to ban it, that being the best possible publicity.

The idea that some drinkers are "using alcohol like drugs" and trying to get the alcohol effect without having a gustatory experience is nothing new. I would cite shooters, lite beer and vodka itself as evidence.

So what you're saying is that the Mayans were the originators of the term "bottoms up"?

I saw on VH1 that some of the guys from Motley Crue mainlined Jack Daniels.

According to 100 Proof this practice is apparently semi-popular in Ireland with vodka and is said to give you a fast and dizzying rush. I imagine, as you stated, that it would also hurt like hell. The book went on to say that the vodka of choice for this practice is Rocket-Fuel vodka which is something like 196 proof. I'm now skeptical of the book because I just googled this vodka and while the brand name does exist the proof on the official site is only 85.7.

I've seen Polish "recitified spirit" (Spirytus Rektyfikowany) in a store near me - it's 96% ABV - one percentage point beyond Everclear. :bigeyes:

Anything beyond that, and you run into alcohol's unfortunate propensity to form an azeotrope; distillation won't get beyond 96%.

Goth, Just to be clear, I was kidding about snorting my bourbon. I love my bourbon, but not enough to stuff it up my nose. :grin:

My girlfriend was born in Poland. She came to the US when she was very young. Apparently it is within customs (of her family at least) to drink 160 proof vodka neat, and with dinner...

Makes Booker's seem like cordial!!! :lol:

On a positive note, after drinking 160 proof vodka, urinating into your fuel tank could be a solution to the rising price of fuel...:slappin:

I once said something funny at just the right/wrong time, and caused a friend to snort Knob Creek through her nose. She stood there just cursing about how much it hurt, and about how much I was laughing at her.

Good times.
