Hey, it's not iced tea. If it didn't have some burn, what would be the point. Admitting it burns doesn't make you a pussy . . .
not drinking it because it burns makes you a pussy.
It's kinda like hot sauce. Everyone has their level of burn that they like.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
Heads & tails, distillation style, shape of the still, proof into the barrel, jeez; this is fun!
I always learn so much in these forums. You guys just rattle this stuff off like it's nothing; but, to me it's AMAZING!!!!
From my common sense, I bet the heads and tails explanation is a big part of the 'burn'. Don't know; ...just sayin'....
The burn and color help remind me that I am not drinking water.
i dont like "smooth". then again, i dont like harsh, just for the sake of being harsh. harsh young isnt good. harsh old is. kinda why i refuse to buy anything under 100 proof. a good "bite" makes a good bourbon to me. Love Bookers and KC 120 proof, and settle into BIB's for daily drinks. If 80-90 proof was all there was, id give up bourbons altogether.
