    Re: Nick names for bourbons

    I have heard "Kickin' Chicken" before, but I always thought it meant Fighting Cock until I opened this thread.

    Where does the term "boiler maker" come from?

    Boiler makers are guys who work in the metal fabricating industry and go to the local bar after work for a beer and a shot.

    My friends and I call OGD BIB "Andy" because our friend looks just like the guy on the label.

    Me too. That's what we call FC all the time. Now, my brother always called WT101 "brain burglar" because he could never remember the night before when he woke up in the morning.

    Re: Nick names for bourbons

    I seem to recall calling Jack Daniels "Uncle Jack"...maybe too much of an inferred relationship with the booze.

    Re: Nick names for bourbons

    Maybe I'm already becoming a bourbon snob, but when i go to a bar, and the only choices they have ar: JB, JB, and MM, and the bartender asks what I want, I tend to use the same name for them all: "No Thank You"
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    I say, "I think I'll just have a beer."

    Bourbon Nicknames

    I work in a liquor store, and customers often have the strangest nicknames for products. I'm interested in hearing some of the nicknames from other regions of the country if people would be so kind as to post. The most common one around here would have to be 100 pound grand dad.
