    I think that a Frum Yid can enjoy a good shot of bourbon on Shabbos or a simcha. It has nothing to do with getting drunk.

    Getting a buzz and getting drunk are 2 different things

    And alien tears will fill for him,

    For his mourners will be outcast men,

    And outcasts always mourn.

    rt: if so many Yidden are discussing this, maybe it’s not a goyishe topic. 🙂 [Does the smiley guy to the left of the beginning of this sentence have a buzz, or is he drunk?]

    rt – I fail to see why this is a goyishe topic. Yidden for many doros have had a shot of bronfin after the fish on Friday night, as well as on Shabbos morning with their herring & kichel. Today, we’re B”H blessed with many great options of quality bourons to enrich our oneg Shabbos. What’s goyish about that?

    Disraeli was a jew who converted to another religion, later arguing that xtianity was “completed Judaism”- chas v’shalom-

    Yet, you quote him, what a shame

    Getting acquainted with Google are we? 😉

    Keep reading, they will probably mention somewhere that he is the descendant of those who were expelled from Spain during the Inquisition. That should shed some light on his Religious beliefs.

    Sorry I’m joining this so late. Bourbon? Yuck!

    Stick with a good single-malt scotch.

    For beginners I recommend Oban. It’s very light and easy to drink.

    The best scotch I ever had was Royal Salute, but at $175 a bottle for the 21-year-old, it’s not something I have very often.

    And this may sound crazy, but try Advoscotch mixed with Fresca. It’s surprisingly good.

    #731427

    have you tried glenlivet 50 years?

    I don’t remember if I’ve ever had it. I think I did and I think it was good. But then again, I’ve never had a single-malt that wasn’t good. But some are better than others.

    #731429

    you never had it

    its $16,000 a bottle

    Depends on the year. Some years it’s available for under $1000.

    Bourbon, Whats the Shailoh?

    There are Three catagories in men who drink booze.

    Those who know their alcohol, & enjoy it.

    Those who drink whatever they’re told is good.

    Those who’ll drink anything.

    There are Three categories in men who drink booze.

    And what about women who drink?

    Sac,

    Defending Disraeli are we? Not surprising, your SC says it all

    And here i thought i always needed to be right- How do you know that I,m not a historian- and, how do we know that you didn’t google it?

    Anyhew, I enjoy a good shot of Bourbon, nice light buzz, dont like getting drunk

    Thats all she wrote

    Best

    haifagirl: Make up your mind, please. You first advise us to stick with a single-malt scotch, but then you say the best scotch you ever had was Royal Salute, which is a blended scotch. As for the Advoscotch-Fresca cocktail, it would taste better without the Advoscotch, but, admittedly, it won’t give a buzz.

    As I have said, the differences in taste among whiskeys is inconsequential and undetectible. If you want a buzz, any alcohol will do. If you want something that tastes good, have a pizza.

    Did you drink it straight? I was of the impression its a good mixing Bourbon.

    Glad to see youre taking your job as Bourbon consultant so seriously 🙂

    Sacrilege – I only drink straight… I did have a shot of Maker’s Mark in between, but that’s only because I like variety.

    Of course, this a serious position which I don’t take lightly…

    Pouge – What are the details; and what’s the cost and where do you get it?

    “Did you drink it straight?”

    What other way is there to really enjoy bourbon?

    Bookers is great for a quick hit but a bit too strong to appreciate its full flavor.

    cherrybim – it is a bit lighter, pretty smooth, and has nice flavor. Overall very nice taste. I’m not great with adjectives in describing bourbons, but I enjoyed it. Not sure of the price, as I had it by someone’s house. I think that it available in most wine stores.

    I agree, there’s no other way to drink bourbon other than straight…

    Not every Bourbon is great tasting, some are better as mixers.

    It runs between $40-$50.

    I was recently given a $$$ bottle of scotch, one that I would never pony up for out of pocket.

    This past shabbos, it was “tested” against my almost fininshed Wild Turkey Rare Breed (almost 1/3 of the cost of the snooty scotch) and given the choice, I’d still go with one of Kentucky’s finest.

    There may be some good scotches to be had, but its tough to find a bad bourbon.

    bpt – that is a very true statement.

    Wild Turkey Rare Breed is an excellent bourbon. I recently started buying the Wild Turkey 101 – which is also very good.
