I drink bourbon, but my father didn't. Not much of it anyway.

Another weird piece of "journalism" brought to us by the Hillcrest elitist. Sounds like he spends a lot of time with the "spirits". Maybe even a seance.

Don't forget the other "Old" as in Milwaukee. My dad drank that and it was my first taste of beer at about 6 y/o. I can still remember the taste of what smelled like rabid skunk p*ss! And you get 2 extra ounces in each can! I'm surprised you don't like the Makers Mark at least the 46 variety. We always drank the Evil Williams in high school especially in the winter time. Old Charter make ya smarter! Good article! You must have graduated high school in '76 or '77.

Bourbon burps bring back that sickening spoiled caramel taste a second time. Never could get over that.

Pappy's is incredibly over priced and made for the rich and famous who only want to impress people that are easily impressed. Jack Daniels is for people more into good bourbon than impressing weak minds. As is Wild Turkey. And Makers Mark. And that's enough.

Class of 1976, Travis. And I was one of the youngest in my cohort.

Same here, Phil. So Dazed and Confused is our autobiography! I remember my buddy in high school would take a couple ounces of booze out of several different bottles, scotch, bourbon, vodka, of his parents liquor and mix it all together in a mason jar. When I'd swing by to pick him up he'd run around to the side of the house where his bedroom window was and grab it off the window sill. That stuff was nasty no matter what you mixed it with.

Stopped in to a liquor store in Helena the other day and they had some Old Charter 10 on sale (they don't make the 10 anymore) for $400 for a fifth, $200 for a pint and $100 for a 1/2 pint. Used to be my go-to but needless to say I didn't pick any up at this price point. Also, Pappy comes from the same vat as all the other Buffalo Trace whiskies. They have tasters that determine which becomes Pappy and which becomes their various other brands. The King has no clothes.

Pappy’s is goo enough whiskey but it’s always been a Tulpenwoede. (Though the real Tulpenwoede never really happened.)

Don't you mean 10 Y/O Old Rip Van Winkle, and 12 Y/O Van Winkle Family Reserve Lot B?
