    Re: Bourbon Accompaniments

    I usually start out with just the drink by itself. Later on in the night, I find garlic salted/flavored peanuts work really well with Bourbon. I have also found that I have enjoyed my bourbons better after a meal with corn in it I don't know if it was just a coincidence with my taste buds those few times but I've found a more delightful experience after having steamed corn, servings of chili that my wife made that is heavy on corn, and corn casserole. I wonder if any of you have had similar experience.

    My experience is that nothing goes better with bourbon than a good cigar.

    Goes without saying but I'm glad you said it! Couldn't agree more. Only area it is lacking in
    is absorption of excess spirits.........

    How about corn chips? Salty, and corn is in most whiskeys and all bourbons?

    Fudgesicles go well with bourbon, but positively Rock with Baby Saz.

    I'll have to try corn chips out. I have tried sun chips with bourbon and it goes pretty well.
