I know many of us have had some standout or higher end bottles in our bourbon careers, but I'm always curious to find out what others consider their most memorable pour(s). It doesn't have to be the best or priciest, just whatever stands out to you.
For me, I'd say I have two pours that are more distinctly more memorable than any other:
1. My first 'enthusiast' pour from a bottle of ER10. It was a number of years ago and really turned me from a Jack & Coke drinker to where I am now. It was what really made the lightbulb go off in my head. I still have the bottle saved.
2. My initial encounter with George T Stagg at a whisk(e)y bar in Milwaukee. At that time, I hadn't really had many higher proof bourbons, especially not something like GTS. Decided to put my big boy pants on and give it a whirl. Has consistently been my favorite ever since.
