    Do You Ever Get Tired of Bourbon?

    Well, do you?

    I can honestly say, I do not. While I tend to sample a wide range of beverages on an ongoing basis bourbon will be sampled a few times per week at least.

    Every once in a while I think to myself, "Gee, a glass of Teacher's would be nice right now."

    And then, with the Teacher's in hand, I'll think to myself, "Wow, I coulda/shoulda had a VW, AAA, ER, a ..."

    A question that I face quite often from my wife, friends, co -workers, children and most of all my favorite bartenders. I have taken to answering the question in a variety of ways.

    1.A wry smile with "I will let you know"

    2.Not lately

    3.No

    and then sometimes I just give them the wry smile.

    Well, Gary, as you and Joe both indicate (differently) I am sometimes in the mood for something else. The occasional rum, tequila, Canadian or Scotch. Does that mean I'm tired of Bourbon? Not at all but I do enjoy a modicum of variety. I love WT KS but if that were all I had I would likely have nothing at all for days here and there. Fortunately that is not my reality and I have choices.

    What, are you kidding?
    No. However, that's not to say that I don't enjoy other beverages from time to time.

    Gary,

    Well I could say both yes or no. I could be a little tier of a specific brand some times and want another or a Tennessee or rye instead. But I am never ever tied of American whiskey in general as long as I can very between different brands and stiles due to my mood at the moment.

    That's why God gave us scotch. And Vodka, Gin, rum and wine. But bourbon is just so approachable.
