    Am I a wuss for liking Wheat over Rye?

    I seem to like wheated bourbons better than ryes. I have read some places that rye is the bourbon with more character and or flavors. The PHC Wheated is like liquid candy to me, and other wheats are my favorite. Am I a wuss for liking wheated more?

    No! If you drank something because you are "supposed" to like it... Wuss. (Most people I know who drink JD fit into this. They don't drink JD because rhey like it, but because that is what "everybody else" drinks)

    Knowing what you like and drinking that = not wuss.

    There is a reason both exist. Tastes differ. No one type is "right"

    Actually only real men like wheaters, however your self doubt labels you a wuss and possibly a worse moniker; wussy

    The wheater drinks sweeter while the rye is spry.

    I second that.

    Drink what you damn well like.

    I like diet Coke. (if I drank regular pop, I'd be one fat bastard) I don't go around saying 'woo will they think I'm a girly man for drinking diet Coke.'

    I like that. I might use it myself someday if you don't mind.

    I don't know why you needed to insult JD drinkers. Obviously I don't know the people that you know that drink JD but I doubt most of them are wusses. Since JD is one of the best selling whiskeys in the world I would imagine that many casual whiskey drinkers order JD because of that fact. If you are not passionate about whiskey you will probably order something you have heard of before. If you are a true whiskey drinker I find it hard to believe that you would drink something you don't really like. I find JD to be priced higher than it should be but it is consistant, has a decent flavor, and I always have a bottle open on my bar. If that makes me a wuss then so be it.

    The only wusses I can think of are people who would call someone a wuss for drinking what they enjoy.
