It has been said about the success of the American women's soccer team that in Europe, soccer's heartland, everyone knows women don't play soccer. They don't know that over here. The American women don't have that mental block to overcome.
I taught a bourbon class last night and the most enthusiastic students were two young women, one of whom plans to do the Bourbon Trail on her motorcycle this summer. I described to her the drive to Woodford Reserve. It has been a long time since I've gotten a women that excited.
Young women are getting into bourbon because they don't know women don't drink bourbon. They were also very interested in learning about Van Winkles.

Before you get too excited about the idea of a gf/wife who's into bourbon, I should tell you, as someone who has one, that means you'll be sharing.
I got less than half of my bottle of 1994 EWSB. If I'm not careful, the same will happen with my ETL 15yo.

I'm lucky as the wife likes Knob Creek when we're traveling. Her regular pour is Tullamore Dew.
