I like both, but I prefer bourbon to whiskey. (And yeah, I've had decent shit, not just college parties.)

We only found out about the speakeasy thing because my grandmother was talking to her (older) sister about the "picnics in Detroit" that their family went on as a child.  Her sister then informed her that there was more than just picnicking going on during those excursions :P

Ain't it sad these stories are coming to an end?

Ever had this Jack Daniels Silver Select Single Barrel?


Great stuff, 100 proof, smooth and delicious.

The Single Barrel bottle I got tasted too much like chemicals for me.

I haven't had any Jack stuff in a long time.

The Black Bush is half gone, so I'll see about getting some of that stuff next..

If you're ever in Tennessee, you should do the Jack Daniels factory tour.

I swear I got a little drunk just walking around the place. The fumes of the fermenting vats, the distillation room, the charcoal filtering barrels, and the barrel house. OMG, whisky heaven...

It's in a dry county, so it's illegal to even give away the stuff to drink.

They sell it there, but you can't drink it there.

I had my bottle of single barrel in the car, so I just took a swig when I left, lol.

That's weird, I'd never even of a dry county before, being from California.

Dry counties aren't really all that uncommon, I've seen a few. 

Dry towns are very common, 'round here at least.  Some sell beer but no liquor, some don't sell any booze at all.  Surprisingly in the last few years some progress has been made, Sunday sales and other such formerly illegal activities.  We can even get beer in some grocery stores now (but there is serious opposition), people from other states could never believe we don't sell beer at the grocery, or liquor in a package store.  (Liquor is sold only in state stores)
Wow that's all pretty ridiculous, I'd heard of the liquor only being sold in state stores before, and no liquor on Sundays thing too, but I hadn't heard that there was still prohibition in some towns/counties.  Here in CA you just need to get a beer/wine and/or a liquor license (expensive) and you can sell in any store.  Pretty much every gas station and every grocery store sells beer, wine and liquor.
