My wife has been interested in my Bourbon journey. She bought "The Stagg" for me for Christmas! Best gift ever! She has visited the Labrot & Graham distillery a few years ago and the Jack Daniel's distillery this past summer with me. She will sample (take a sip or 2) of the various bourbons that I will try. She has a pretty good sense of taste and smell, and will pick up on certain flavors/aromas before I will. So, although she does not drink very much, she understands my enjoyment of this exploration. I have to say that I'm a lucky guy!
