    Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    It may be that this has been discussed before, but a cursory search of the archives turns up no thread that appears to address it directly. Plus with the huge number of new members (see my post "Hyperbolic" in the Welcome to SB.com forum) it could stand a revisit anyway.

    Anyway, does your spouse drink bourbon? If so, any preferences?

    Mine does. She likes BT, VW Lot B, and Woodford Reserve. As of last evening she likes Saz Jr.

    She generally takes it on-the-rocks.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    As of right now the only bourbon I can get Michelle to drink is a mint julep, hand made, I have not tried the MM pre-made on her yet.

    I can not get her top try on the rocks, neat or even righht out the bottle yet but we'll keep her. She does like a dirty martini so I know the bourbon is just a taste thing because she can drink the afore mentioned!

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    I have just got my drinking mixed drinks. I make a wide verify of drinks and about a dozen chocolatetinis.

    I have been getting her to smell my bourbons and pick out different things. Once and a while she will taste... Not a fan yet, but give me time

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    If and when my wife chooses to partake, it is always the same. She has sampled a few of my choices, but always goes back to her first love. And who I am to argue?

    She prefers Maker's mixed with 1/2 Coke and 1/2 Diet Coke.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    My spouse does like bourbon. She likes Knob Creek. She will try other bourbons but finds KC to be the best. She likes it on the rocks with a little water usually. Also, sometimes she likes a Manhattan, not too sweet. She does not like straight rye (any kind except ORVW 13 years old, which admittedly is bourbon-like). She does not like Jack Daniels except for the occasional Single Barrel but seems unimpressed generally with it. (I think after 35 years I have developed a taste for Jack. Shucks, took me only 20 to like single malt!).

    Brenda does not like bourbon....in fact she doesn't drink much at all.
    And when she does, it doesn't take much!

    She will normally drink a sweet white wine, usually Moscato.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    No. She'll taste some of mine once in a while when I have one with a mixer. Other than that, maybe wine coolers or a sweet mixed drink. When we went to the KBF last year she tried one of the offerings after one of our distillery tours. After the first one she let me have all the rest. She has a good nose though. When I get a new bourbon she'll smell it, and can pick out the aromas that I just can't seem to put my finger on. Joe

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    Penny will have an occasional white wine, margarita or whiskey sour...she won't drink bourbon, but she's understanding when it comes to me having it and buying it. (so far, but I only have 11 bottles)
