    Sharing Your Love of Bourbon With the One You Love



    Remember guys and gals, if you don't have the you-know-whats to tell it as it is, then don't vote, OK?

    Yours truly,

    Re: Sharing Your Love of Bourbon With the One You Love

    MY wife is a little of several of your choices. She is quite the avid bourbonian, and the fact that she can smell much better than I (3 broken noses already in my life can wreak havoc on that sense) is indispensable when I/WE do tasting notes. Anybody who was with us at the bourbon festival can tell you that she had as much fun there as I

    That said, she does like other types of alcohol (especially tequila, and to a lesser extent vodka/gin in the context of a "good"martini) as well. She would probably choose tequila as her favorite liquor if asked.


    And she ahs been known to drink all the Old Ezra 7 or George Dickel in the house and then serendipitously re-add it too the shopping list! !

    I'd say my wife gets a big ole BLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! Overall!! !

    Leslie takes an intrest in bourbon and the bourbon industry, but doesn't especially like to drink it. She does enjoy a bourbon sour, but she is mostly a wine drinker.

    Stacy is pretty much the same way. She totally supports me in my collecting aspects and even goes out of her way to help me find new bottles. And like your wife Jeff, she also enjoys aspects of bourbon and the industry but mainly she is a beer or wine girl.

    Although she doesn't drink bourbon herself very often, Peggy has always been great too. My Christmas or birthday gifts are often a bottle of a good bourbon or a book on bourbon. She helps make the search and collection of different bourbons more fun.

    This has changed a bit since my original reply. Leslie has moved from bourbon sours to Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. She still doesn't care for bourbon alone, but we're moving in the right direction

    My wife doesn't drink bourbon, but she does drink whiskey; in fact, she was drinking single-malt Scotch before I discovered whiskey myself.

    Re: Sharing Your Love of Bourbon With the One You Love

    My girlfriend simply cannot abide the whisk(e)y. She's an accomplished beer connoisseur, to the point of using software to track all the beers she's had and her comments about them, but finds Bourbon and Scotch to be completely disgusting.

    Every so often, she'll reluctantly try something if I say it's especially good. Even so, she can barely make herself swallow it.

    Give that woman a beer!

    Re: Sharing Your Love of Bourbon With the One You Love

    I've cast my vote, but if I had the opportunity I would tweak my vote somewhat. I stated a short time back that I've converted my lady from strictly wine and beer to a neat-drinking bourbon/whiskey women! She doesn't drink as much as I, but almost as frequent, and on occasion does the purchasing as well! We usually drink together, and is getting pretty good at identifying specific tastes/flavors in the pours (in less than a year).....You've come a long way baby! See ya, H'wood

    Those of you that have met Vickie can attest to the fact that she can go drink for drink with any man and can drink average men under the table. She knows quite a bit about bourbon itself as to how it is made and who makes what and whether a bourbon is a traditional rye recipe or a wheater, but she could care less about it's history. It's all about the here and now with her. She wants bourbon right here - right now.
