    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    A friend had a bottle of Canadian last night - Gibson's 18 year old. Never heard of it. Said he got it for free, but it was supposedly a $75 bottle. It was okay, but nothing special - would never pay anywhere near that much for it. I don't have a lot of experience with them, but I just don't "get" Canadian whiskey, they all seem rather bland to me. That ultimately didn't stop five of us from putting a huge dent in the bottle. Finished up with some 4R SmB.

    I like Gibsons but find the flavor definitely in the middle range, even for a Canadian. Won't stop me from drinking it though.

    Ultimately the only thing that stopped me was the need to drive home safely.

    I was invited by a new acquaintance to stop by and have some bourbon. It turns out the "bourbon" was Seagram's. He prefers it with 7-Up. Trying to be polite, I casually mentioned that Seagram's isn't really bourbon. He says that is "just a technicality." Fortunately, I managed to squelch the temptation to lecture. But it took an inordinate amount of will power.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    That reminds me, some folks think Jack Daniels and Crown Royal are bourbon too.

    perhaps because practically every Canadian whiskey is 80 proof. Ive looked the Canadian shelf over many times, thinking I'd try one if over 90 proof, but haven't seen one yet, from a quick scan of the shelves. I don't like to dip below 100 proof, and I will NOT go below 90. I'm enjoying some 90 proof Dickel right now (not a bourbon either, technically), but the 103 proof Dickel is SO much better!

    Even at higher proof the Canadian style will seem light in comparison to a full flavored Bourbon.
