    Best Bourbon

    I have been drinking bourbon for many years and not too many years ago I had one or two that I drank most of the time. I have read this forum from top to bottom and have discovered that no one has a "favorite" bourbon - leastwise not for very long! It seems to me that there is no such thing as "the best". Today, we are living in a time where all bourbons, regardless of who made it, is all the best. One day you will pour yourself two or three fingers and say this is "the best", tomorrow it's a different bottle and it's the "best". Now, after having said this, I do have my favorites and there are 5 or 6 of them. This doesn't mean they are the best, they are just "my" favorites. To have all the variety that is out there "aren't we the lucky ones"? Well, it is time to try another one and here's to you .

    Cheers,
    Marvin

    Re: Best Bourbon

    Here's a toast to both you guys! Me and Stacy are only 7 months today.

    You guys are so right too, there is no such thing as your one and only favorite bourbon. Whenever someone asks me that I tell them it is too hard a question to answer; I do not have just one favorite. We are so lucky that there are so many great bourbon's out there right now, so much diversity, so many premium bottlings etc... Let's hope it continues

    Agreed. As much as I know distillers covet the awards, it is really not appropriate to try to determine THE SINGLE best from great variety.

    Dave, that is fantastic. Congrats to you and your wife (you didn't tell us her name!). My wife and I celebrated my 20th this past summer.

    Like most marriages that last this long, there are some rocky times, but we find a way to fight through the dark hours and keep on going. It's never easy, but always worth it.

    Re: Best Bourbon

    The best bourbon, of course, is the one in my glass at the time.

    When my wife's parents lived near us in South Florida in the mid-80s, my father-in-law and I would go bass fishing constantly in our little 12' boat in the canals. One day a big high-powered bass boat was barrelling down the canal and stopped where we were fishing. They asked us where the best spot to fish was. Without missing a beat, my father-in-law said "Right here where I am now." The other guys were speechless. It was hilarious! They didn't know what to say. They could only muster a "Yeah, thanks" and blasted off. The funny part was that we hadn't caught a thing all day!

    My best bourbon was probably one of the shots of Booker's shared with my Dad the last time I visited him in FLA. Booker's is by no means on my "top favorutes" list (though it is very good) but sharing the time and experience with him definately made it memorable.
