    Drinking Bourbon in Bars

    Recently I was in a bar that hosts a blues jam. I wanted bourbon. The entire selection consisted of Jim Beam white, Knob Creek, and some nondescript well bourbon.

    At another blues club that I frequent, their top American whiskies are WT 101 and JD Single Barrel.

    Then there are bars like this one. (How can they make money on A.H. Hirsch 16 y/o at that price?)

    How many of you have access to a bar that offers a significant selection of bourbon?

    Yours truly,

    I almost never go to bars except when I am out of town. But I can tell you about a great one in Atlanta! Pappy 20-yr was $11. Rock Hill Farms was $6.25. I don't remember the other prices.

    Re: Drinking Bourbon in Bars

    I don't generally go to bars anymore (life with an infant daughter). I was, however, at a wedding this weekend that had a rather poor choice in their otherwise well-stocked bar. Beam White or Old Granddad (the 86 proof variety). Also, they refused to serve it neat, which annoyed the hell out of me. Only served in a glass FULL of ice......

    "they refused to serve it neat"

    What kind of sick (not to mention weirdly controlling) people are these?

    Lucky you carry your own glass for just such problems!

    I attended a wedding Charlotte 8 months ago that started well (-real- NC barbecue for the rehearsal dinner) but ended bad...

    the closest thing to whisky of any sort they had at the reception was Southern Comfort!


    Gin and Tonic, at least the bottle said it was gin, tasted more like vodka mixed with pine sol...
