    Talking What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    My whiskey syndicate at work invested in a bottle of Bulleit Rye this afternoon, very nice!
    Sorry for bragging Vietish.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    I also bought a bottle of the bulleit rye last night, i like it, while at first i noticed they had canadian club 20yr for $80, seems affordable for the age, anyone here tried it?

    I love CC 20 and grabbed a couple of bottles last year when it was on special for $60, but if you're after bang for buck, CC12 at $45 is a better deal. I'd probably pick Crown Royal over CC 20, but that's just me. As for last night, I enjoyed a couple of 'New York' pours of Makers Mark and Cokes over lots of ice with a slice of lime. Very refreshing!

    Bragging? Heh what now?

    On the weekend, decided against better judgement to try the pre mixed Bulleit drinks that are out. God. I wanted curl into a little ball and die. Worst drink I think I have ever consumed and I have drunk some questionable things in my time.

    On the other had, sat down on Sat night, smoked a cigar and had a very big pour of Eagle Rare with the girl. That was much much better.

    There's 3 of them from memory. Which one did you try?

    All of them Cam, as there was a special 3 for $15. Store clerk really sold them as fantastic.

    Louisville Lemonade
    Kentucky Buck
    Batches the Rambler

    Out of all three, I could maybe get through half of the Louisville Lemonade. But that was a struggle. I know I don't have the most refined palate and its only just now I can start really getting the flavour profiles out of each bourbon I drink, but I know I will not be going back to them ever.

    I tried the lemonade one and didn't think it was that bad.

    No not yet. Plenty of 101 still in my area.

    Thanks cam. I might give the CC20 a miss and stick with bourbon.
