    Bourbon and Botanicals

    My latest experiment.
    I love gin but also love bourbon.
    I'm making a juniper, anise, lemongrass, grapefruit peel infused Bourbon.

    Will it be Herbon or Burgin?

    OMG! you've made Scotch!
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Nope. Not Scotch.
    Left out dirt, bandaids and ashtray.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way. I am always willing to give it a try, but so far not my cup of whisky. Good luck with your experiment, sounds interesting for sure.

    As a Scotch lover, I feel compelled to correct this misinformation - it should be BANDAGES, not Bandaids (TM), and preferably bandages that have been used at least once.

    No, I meant Band Aids. Chorophenolic.

    Nothing smells like a genuine, trademarked, original, flesh colored, Band-Aid. (Except bad beer and good scotch)

    Ahh haaa! missed it by that much !....!

    Actually it sounds very good. I actually like to throw some good ole bourbon into Margarita mix from time to time. Bourbon actually seems to go very well with citrus flavors. The juniper and anise adds a whole new dimension I've never tried. I gotta try that. I'll leave out the dirt, bandaids and ashtray out on the first try. I can always add the other stuff later.

    Doesn't matter. As Stuart Rankin would say, if it's not Scottish, it's crap.
