    Is there a special name for a Bourbon Expert?

    This may be a silly question, but is there a name, or designation, for a Bourbon expert?
    I know that for wine it's a Sommelier.
    For beer it's a Cicerone
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    I'm not aware of a specific descriptive term in the Bourbon world but there's no reason why they couldn't be called a Spirits Sommelier.

    Bourbonite or maybe this is something that will take down the MD like kryptonite will take down Superman.

    My wife calls me a drunk, if that helps.

    Don't think resident drunk would resonate well with the restaurant patrons.
