Everyday Bourbon.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:43 pm

I believe that all civilized people should have an “everyday bourbon” handy to smooth out the rough edges created by a hard day’s toil. It shouldn’t be hidden away in the liquor cabinet, but rather it should occupy a place in the kitchen for easy access. I have found that Jim Beam fits the bill, but I often try other brands.

My most recent “experiment” was this one, which I think does the job quite nicely, and as an Honorary Georgia Blogger, I think that its name is gott-damned inspiring.


  1. BTW, congrats on your honorariness. I don’t bourbon, but I tip my espresso to you in celebratory excess.

  2. Hmm..I don’t bourbon either, your honorariness. Unless it’s Crown and then only if you buy. Have a nice time in Joisey.

  3. Dogette – Celebratory Excess is my middle name. Actually, I suppose it is better said that they are my middle names.

    Poopie – If I should ever be fortunate enough to be in your company, the Crown is on me.

  4. If you progress to a second or third pop, you may want to have a copy of Billy Idol’s immortal song of the same name on hand to heighten the festivities. “In the midnight hour, she cried, ‘More, more more!’ Waahhhh!”

  5. Mr. Beam always fit my tast pretty well. For you non Bourbon drinkers Crown is a Blend, not a Bourbon. You might want to try some Basil Hayden’s. It is 8 year old, small batch, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It is very smooth and leaves a very pleasant aftertaste.

  6. Beam is a fine bourbon and usually the cheapest one in the store unless its one of that places that run specials on Olde Douchebagge. But for my ‘everyday’ bourbon (which is only a slight exaggeration) I prefer Wild Turkey. It’s a good drink, but I have to admit part of the reason is that it has a cork top. I love the sound as I pour one.

  7. To smooth out my daily rough edges I tap into some very fine drinks and other heady contributors. It’s either a decaf latte or tea, accompanied by some wonderful sites listed on my blogroll, of which PRS is one.

    Enjoy your Rebel Yell & I too say more, more, more!
