I bought a bottle of Bulleit when I went to SHOT a few years ago because it seemed appropriate. It’s still sitting in my fridge.
Hey! I bought you that bottle. At the airport even.

So @Steve1839 is texting me ingredients for his pumpkin pie. Every few ingredients he lists "Bourbon."
Finally I ask him "Is there any pumpkin in this? Not judging, just asking."
He says, "Canned pumpkin but not the pie filling. Eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla, and bourbon.
Oh, and pie crust, and bourbon."
I ask, "Bourbon pie?"
He says, "Oh there's no bourbon in the pies."

:rolleyes: }:-) :ROFLMAO:

For those in Nevada, if you haven't started drinking Smoke Wagon, you're wrong. My local did two private barrel picks for black Friday and I got two bottles. Amazing stuff.

Not for fine drinking - but I marinated a nice sized skirt steak in some plain old Jim Beam - sealed it in a bag and let it drink all night then grilled it on a blistering hot cast iron griddle.

Kentucky Bourbon Skirt Steak make cheap bourbon good again.

Nice - Kentucky Bourbon - made in Baltimore Maryland. A true military special - I'll bet that same company makes Kansas City style BBQ and New York style pizza.

Jim Beam is the champagne of cheap whiskey. I haven't bought bottom-shelf-plastic-bottle PX liquor since I was a Spec-4....

I'm sure my skirt steak would have had more class if it had been marinated in Pappy VanWinkle - but if I could afford high end bourbon - it would not be poured over low end beef !!!

Just sayin'

Military Special is a sourced bourbon, the distillery is actually in Kentucky. Barton Distillery (Owned by Sazerac), which is the distillery of 1792, is where Military Special is sourced from.
