    I got a 70cl bottle of 'blended bourbon' from my parents this christmas, very nice of them. From what I know its a decent one and runs like £50 a bottle, not 'shite' by any means.

    But I am a larger in front of the TV type, this just is not me.

    Now I wanted to try it, of course but the thing is fucking horrible.

    I can drink it with coke, but I am all out. (about 1/4 bourbon, 3/4 coke with a lil lemon)

    Are their any bourbon lovers out there? How do you like it?

    So far its going back to the cupboard to never be removed again... Seems a shame.

    Leaving aside the topic of this thread, let me be frank, I sincerely find your Profile Pic damn irritating.
    No disrespect, but I wanted to say this for a long time. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays:)

    Cheers :)

    Unfortunately quality Bourbon, like any good Whiskey should be enjoyed straight. You can cut it with a drop or two of water.

    Don't drink shit you don't like. Simple as that.

    I like vodka and gin - won't drink whiskey. I've had many bottles of whiskey (and even more of other stuff) as present, but then I just give then out as I don't drink that stuff. People have different likes and dislikes, it's not a big deal.

    Bourbon or whisky as we call it over the pond is a bit like cheese. You don't go straight for the blue stuff and you start with a cheddar first and build up. Having whisky in coke first and increasing the whiskey/coke ratio is sensible. When you start drinking it straight, add ice cubes and add a bit of water to dilute it. The first few glasses won't be very nice in all honesty but then you will really start to like it and in time you will probably stop needing to add water

    #7 is a Jack Daniels and it is a whiskey, although for me it it like a big brother of Jim Beam :)

    Love them both :)

    Just drink it slowly. I prefer mine with Ice although real purists will tell you thats dimming the taste. A nice whiskey buzz is a lot nicer than a crate of stella just got to take your time and let it creep up on you. If you dont like the taste you may find yourself getting to like it more by your second glass.
