    Flavored Bourbon ?

    I would like your guy's opinion on flavored Bourbon which is technically just flavored whiskey. I'm a purist all the way. If I want maple syrup I'll have it on pancakes. I not judging anyone here for liking it , I'm just curious. I received a bottle of Jim Beam Maple for Christmas and will most likely never drink it.

    I don't have any but if I were gifted one I would probably use it for cooking.

    Agreed, if I want it flavored I'll do it myself. The same goes for 80 or 86 proof. If I want lower proof I'll do it myself.

    I don't care for it but then I don't drink flavored coffee either. I also don't think of myself as a purist in either regard, just a matter of taste. I've certainly bought my share of flavored whatsits to please others.

    I'm not a fan, but to each his own.

    Finished bourbon is another story, of course.

    Re: Flavored Bourbon ?

    I bought a bottle of JB Red Stagg, and just don't even think of it as bourbon (or whiskey to be honest). I haven't had any of it in a while, and mostly keep it on hand for the wife - but I do enjoy it. Just - not like bourbon or whiskey (sorta like I enjoy Coke Zero and milk - but don't think of them in the same vein).

    Would never touch flavored whiskey.

    Not too long ago I saw the sticker tag for Stagg Jr at a store but the shelf was empty so I asked the manager if he had left in the back. He said, "Oh, we have a whole shelf of them." I pointed out that the hang tag was there but the shelf was empty, but he was insistent. He then led me right to the Red Stag. Thanks, but no thanks.

    I'd use it in a cocktail, pour it over pancakes and/or icecream, put it in your coffee or use it as a mixer when people come over who mix their drinks. Otherwise, I guess you could always re-gift it next Christmas.

    i couldve written this myself.

    then again, it was WT Honey ( that was kept in the freezer) that was my gateway into bourbon. I just dont enjoy it anymore though
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.
