Starting a new thread for this, in order to not derail things to much.

Besides, that's 4 days killed, days that we could be showing you the glory of Tucson.  And bourbon.  Not the kind of bourbon You People would drink, over there where you can get beer that tastes like beer and booze that doesn't chew the enamel off of your teeth.  No.  Our bourbon.  Stuff that would make Humphrey Bogart cry, and make George Thorogood give up on the sauce.  And we shall drink in the company of branding freaks and tape worm perverts, and we shall call it Right & Good.

What is good bourbon? I have quite a lot of experience with scotch, and I've had a couple of bourbons: Jack Daniels and some slightly more classy stuff called woodland reserve. The Jack was good for fast drinking, and the Woodland Reserve was also very nice.

Or maybe I got the question wrong. How much bourbon is good bourbon? Where is good bourbon? What kind of companions make good bourbon?

Jack Daniels isn't bourbon.

Evan Williams is the bourbon of choice in Tucson.  It tastes like every horrible thing that ever happened on our streets and highways.  It goes down like broken dreams, and when you wake up, you aren't sure why you didn't chase it with Drano.

Though its not burbon when i feel like punishing myself and others for less than six dollars- old thompson whiskey. Doks description of evan williams is kinda along the lines of how id assess old thompson which i affectionately refer to as cheap kentucky rot gut.

Makes perfect sense. You never hear of anyone drinking a fine welsh 18 year old whiskey.

I'm afraid I won't be able to get this stuff easily. I'll ask my family to get some if they travel to the states sometime.

But why would you ever buy less than 750ml?  I mean, if you're going to smash your brains with rotgut, you have to go to the fucking WALL with it.

Oh, yeah, if you want to spend all night vomiting on Calvinists, and the whole next day wanting to die, there's no sense going halfway.

I just shuddered on reading that.

I've never bought hard liquor that has been in a plastic container.  I've drunk some horrific shit, vodka for less than a fiver, scotch with all the flavour and class of a bottle of piss...but plastic?  Shit.

My local booze shop sells single serving whiskey. These come in test tubes. I'm fine with that. But plastic?

I was already kind of shocked when I found out that there was beer sold in plastic.

Even Peruvians had the decency to put that swill they call pisco in a glass container.

Possibly because it would melt plastic, but still...
