Sounds good :)  Also, I'm always in the market for a good bourbon, so if you try something, please share!

Deal.  I'm afraid I'm not going to try anything super exciting anytime soon since the awesome store has closed.  Also, my life is more Bar examinee than bar attendee these days, alas.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Masterful.  I continue to be impressed by this shtick. 

Yeah, I think that this *has* to be schtick (or at least I hope so).

I haven't heard of a single whiskey mentioned.  I'm guessing they're not sold in plastic bottles at Rite Aid.

Don't drink cognac much anymore.  Nowadays I'm all about whiskey.  Knob Creek to be exact.  On the rocks.  If you haven't tried it yet, try it out.  Change your life.

That's bourbon to be exact.

Try some Baker's or Basil Hayden's sometime when you're feeling flush. 

All bourbons are whiskey, you wise guy.   (wise gal didn't have the same ring to it)

Those are good.  But Burning, if you want to spend roughly the same as Knob Creek, try out some 1792.  That's a nice smooth, yet flavorful bourbon.

1792?  Never had it, but I'll search for it this weekend.

I know.  I was just pushing precision because I think that bourbon is superior to and distinct from other whiskeys. :)

1792 is fine, but doesn't distinguish itself from Booker's etc.  Basil Hayden's is a credited recommendation if you're new to bourbon and want to start with something that's good but won't burn a hole in your tongue.  Works when you're 'flushed' too, I suppose.

(Edited to add that the credited everyday bourbon is Woodford Reserve.  It's the real stuff.)

I like Woodford Reserve a lot (oaky, smooth, complex for its age), but I've had a few bottles that weren't so good.  I am not enough of an afficionado to have paid attention to the batch numbers and stuff, but is it possible that there were some bad batches/years/barrels out there?  It's basically turned me off enough that I've stopped buying Woodford Reserve when I'm shopping in that price range.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

Bad batches are possible I'm sure.  I try to avoid their Derby bottles, just because I feel like that stuff is rushed out for whatever reason.

Totally makes sense.  Thanks for the (implicit) advice.

Wow, I came to conquer this thread and now... suddenly... it's totally out of my league.  At least it's informative.  And at least you're as lost as I am, d.

BTW:  Underdog (the original) was a childhood hero of mine.  He's part of the reason I've grown up to be such a loser.  The other part is genetic.

To be honest, the underdog theme still sends chills down my spine...
