A GENTLEMAN'S VICE: BOURBON

The finer things in life can range from cars to  clothes to homes. But many of these things are subjective and everyone's opinions on luxury varies. Bourbon however is not a subjective luxury. All bourbons are finely  crafted. These bourbons though are beautifully crafted , aged perfectly and bottled for the man of distinguished tastes. Gentleman, a toast to our warm, rich, velvety, smooth, and comforting friend, bourbon.
Here are my choices: Four Roses, Woodford Reserve, and Pappy Van Winkle (top to bottom)




















About: Bourbon must contain a minimum of 51% corn, be produced in the United States, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof) and be aged for a minimum of two years in new charred barrels, although in practice virtually all straight whiskies are aged at least four years. Any Bourbon, or any other domestic or imported whiskey, for that matter, that has been aged less than four years must contain an age statement on the label. Small Batch Bourbons are bourbons that bottled from a small group of specially selected barrels that are blended together. It should be noted though that each distiller has their own interpretation of what constitutes a "small batch." Single Barrel Bourbon is Bourbon from one specifically chosen cask.

  1. On the other hand, the downside of replica watches is that in one way it could be considered a form of stealing. Like buying bootleg copies of CDs or replica watches sale or illegally downloading music from the internet. You'll have to make that call but rolex replica the copyrighted designs of the fake rolex sale. Plus, the whole purpose of luxury brands is to not cater to just anyone. They are manufactured and designed with the utmost quality with full knowledge that as a result, their cost will be prohibitive for most fake watches people. However, if you're ok with the whole copyright thing and your heart is set on buying a fake breitling; then, as the old saying goes, "buyers beware". Just because it's relatively dirt cheap doesn't mean its bargain. You still need to exercise caution and wisdom before you buy.
