Bourbon, Whiskey, Spirits thread

I don’t get the hype for Eagle Rare. It’s a good bourbon at best. It’s not great. If I can’t drink it neat then it doesn’t deserve the hype.


#243

Wow. That’s very Nick of you!


#244

I’m using my whiskey glass to drink ice water. First time it’s seen ice. Someday.


#245

Haha!


#246

happy birthday!


#247

My midwife was like “It’s my husband’s birthday” and I had to stop myself from saying, really? It’s Nick’s birthday too, because @nick is not a universal phenomenon.

Happy birthday Nick!


#252

Thank you, everyone!


#253

Yeah, it was my first foray into bourbon, so my palette was super basic. Again, I don’t think I’d still be interested in it, even if it was available.

Happy birthday, Nicolai! (@nick)


#254

He is around here.

Happy birthday Nick!


#255

Total phenomenon! Happy Birthday, Nick! :birthday:


#256

My husband loves that stuff. I’ll tell him it’s hipster and ruin it for him. Thanks.

And Happy Birthday nick. :heart:

Good luck Monkey. I think I’ve been drinking sober for 4 years in June. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made with myself. All the little health annoyances and lack of motivation that I chalked up to age are gone. I’m happier and a bigger asshole now than ever.


#258

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. The fact that they happened in a booze thread makes so much sense.


#259

Did you replace drinking with a different habit/drink? (e.g. high end sparkling water or needlepoint?)


#260

Oh yes for sure. I’ve always been a sugar fiend but now I can justify it. That’s my next battle. I’m the perfect candidate for saf’s creamer test.

And YES on the high end sparkling water. I love Dry Sodas. I can crush a 4 pack if I’m really going hard on the weekends.

This is a family message board.

I am into all that flavored soda water. Le Croix type shit. Try to keep it to one a day, so it’s a good thing I really enjoy icewater.
