If there’s a whiskey that I have in the house at all times, it’s bourbon. I like all kinds of whiskey, but I’ll go to bourbon before I go to anything else.
Today, a co-worker visiting from out of state and I got into a discussion bourbon. She asked me what my go-to was, and I said, “It’s usually Bulleit.” She sheepishly replied, “Mine’s Evan Williams because I can drink it with ice and coke and not feel guilty that I’m ruining a good bourbon.”
I smiled and told her that I have a liter bottle of Evan Williams that I’ve almost polished off. I’ve been making an Old Fashioned with the stuff nearly every night for the last three weeks (I only use a little at a time), just to wind down before bed.
What can I say? It’s not a bad bourbon at all, and at $15.99 for a liter, it’s pretty easy to pour a drink and not look longingly at the bottle as the volume drops! 🙂
Yeah, I still have my fine bourbons and whiskeys on hand. But I’ve only been enjoying those on the weekend. It’s nice to see that their volumes haven’t dropped. So I think I’ll keep getting this trusty bourbon, though I think I might have to get some Wild Turkey as well to add a change of pace.
