...At 12 we started getting Old Crow from a local scoundrel and drank it on hot days when fishing...In the 50's I began buying bourbon, of many brands, that cost a few bucks more. In those days, no one that I knew considered lushing it up much of an art form! So, I can't recall any details...But, while I like a smooth bourbon now, a glass of Bulleit sparks my younger days.
Thank you -- bona fides established and accepted! If you might recall just a few details from those '50s-era days, what were some of the "brands that cost a few bucks more"? And, what kind of prices are we talking about in that era? Any favorites? What brands might relate to today's Bulleit?

Awe, shucks! (And, if you were my neighbor, and we were not communicating on such a public forum, I might use a more scatological reference in lieu of "shucks"!)
