    You got that right. My wife thinks this obsession is ridiculous and that I need help. I tell her the only help I'll need is unloading the palettes of bourbon I want to order for my bunker.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    My wife loves the smell of bourbon and will occasional have a bourbon-based drink, but she won't sip the stuff neat or on the rocks.

    She really prefers your classic rum and tequila cocktails, especially mojitos and margaritas and such. But at least she drinks real margaritas, not the frozen kool-aid concoctions that many places like to serve up.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    Amy doesn't drink bourbon at all. She'll have an occasional white wine, margarita, or appletini. Particularly when she's getting together with her girlfriends for "Girls Night Out".

    Like others have said about their wives, mine has a great nose (nice legs, too! ), for identifying different smells in my bourbon. When I pick up a new bottle, I'll many times giver her the first pour to nose, before I check it out. She has a gift for picking up and identifying subtle aromas.

    My wife will have a small glass neat every once in a while - usually when the port runs out, which she prefers. And she'll drink cocktails with bourbon in them.

    My wife didn't until our trip to Kentucky... now she is a big fan - Maker's is her current favorite.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    Bernadette loves malt neat. However she is finally learning to enjoy bourbon in "Kentucky coffee" (bourbon instead of Irish whiskey) and an unsweetened mint julep. She does enjoy a good rye neat or on one cube however.

    Nah, my wife does not partake in my bourbon. She prefers wine (her family owns a winery), though she has shown more interest in microbrews lately.

    Jen did/does too. Our recent trip to the USA were she met some of the SB.com crowd has mellowed her view though. Now she understands and appreciates (and even enjoys) the social aspect of what we do, as well as the industry that we all support, but she still thinks I'm crazy wanting to try and buy nearly every brand of bourbon I come across.

    Re: Does your spouse drink bourbon?

    Nope! Ms. Sippin prefers either white or red wine which is OK with me.
    As he removed the cork from the bottle of bourbon, he threw it across the room and said, "we ain't gonna need that no more".
