People sometimes ask, â€œYo, Jimbo, you drink a bit of bourbon now and again. Which is a good one?â€
Yes, I have sampled a taste of bourbon from time to time, and Iâ€™ve even written about some of them to one degree of detail or another (see below). Truth is, there are many good ones.
â€œYeah, but Jimbo, youâ€™re not helping me here. I need something easy to work with.â€
OK, OK, already. Hereâ€™s â€œDa Ruleâ€. Itâ€™s really simple, so pay attention. Are you ready?
See? I said it was simple. There are also some corkless ones that I enjoy (e.g. Jim Beam), but you wanted a simple rule. Now go forth and purchase.
Note: I have written one thing or another about the following bourbons (usually with a link) . I assembled this list as a public service. Youâ€™re quite welcome.
