Does this make me a bad person?

Unread postby Birdo » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:25 am

I noticed a had a few dead soldiers in the liquor cabinet, a makers mark, and a ridgemont 1792. I thought geeze, its gonna cost $50 bucks to replace these, so instead, I bought a bottle of Very Old Barton 100 proof, and filled the empties with that. And why not, VOB is quite nice.

My friend and his goofy wife came by to visit and I promptly served a faux makers and coke, and she was pleased as punch. She is nice enough, but thinks it cool to dump $25 bourbon in Soda.

What can you say about VOB 100? Great bourbon aged six years and bottle at high proof, whats not to like here?

It begins. Then the next thing you know you're taking the "do not remove" tags off pillows and mattresses. Then the next thing you know you're on death row and Lee Marvin marches into your cell with a raw deal only slightly less raw than the deal you already have.


Some people are too polite, but, how can you miss flavoring stick whiskey? I ordered a Wild Turkey in a bar and got Beam. It came out of the Turkey bottle but that sure as hell aint what it was. What was I supposed to do? Rip the bar apart? There used to be "do not refill warnings". And there used to be age statements. There used to be a lot of stuff.
Brown Party Liquor? Yesss Sir!

I think you're better off filling up a Maker's bottle with VOB 100 ;)

I often receive a bottle of Makers for Christmas, and its good enough, but I don' spend my cash on it. Yea, VOB 100 is better than Makers regardless of cost.

If that makes you a bad person, it makes me one, too. :)

There are no bad people in Bourbondum, only poor people due to spending too much on bourbon.

I only filled the makers bottle and the 1792 Ridgemont bottle. Most folks that like makers don't know what great bourbon taste like anyway, and 1792, is a slighly better bourbon than VOB in a fancier bottle, both from Barton brands.

I absolutely will NOT put value price boutbon in my Knob Creek or Four Roses SIngle barrel empties, that would be treasonous.
