    Re: Finish the sentence: I like bourbon because...

    I like bourbon, because _____________.

    I enjoy the flavor and feel of a good pour.

    I feel it is a good reward for having done a days work at the farm.

    I like the history that it holds both my personal and that of the nation ..

    what else is there to drink?... other than maybe water, and even at that the jury is still out on it ... man kind has not made a better drink for a good pour .

    Bill G,

    Re: Finish the sentence: I like bourbon because...

    I like Boubon because ______________.

    1. its simple. All you need is a glass and thats optional. No need for straws or fruit juices,silly names or those little umbrellas ( although just for fun sometimes i order my bourbon with one...)
    2. its complex. Take a sip and you know what i mean.
    3.its not an apple flavored martini or what ever the flavor of the week happens to be.Screw diamonds, Bourbon is forever.
    4. its mine. You have to want to drink it.Bourbon is not for everyone. And I like that.I remember feeling like I had discovered buried treasure when started loving bourbon.I almost have conflicting feelings on spreading the Bourbon Religion.On one hand you share the joy of bourbon with the otherwise ignorant masses, on the other hand the less that know, the more for us.

    Re: Finish the sentence: I like bourbon because...

    I like bourbon because it likes me.
    It doesn't give me a headache while drinking it like wine. It doesn't fill me up and make me feel bloated like beer. It doesn't make me smell like a Christmas tree like gin. It doesn't make me want to look down on people like scotch.
    It doesn't leave that rubbing alcohol taste like vodka.
    But mostly,
    It doesn't make me dance naked in public bars like tequila. (at 5'6" 280# NOBODY wants that)
