        This one made me laugh. They have tried a lot of booze. But this is the first that gave them a blush.

          Here´s another clue: You don't slam shots of bourbon.
          YOU CHUG IT!!!

                Let's see compare high end bourbons, Like Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 , Mitchers 20 year old single barrel, Old Fitzgerald Very Old 8 Year Old, and Willett Single Barrell 22 Year Old. Canadian whiskeys and single malt scotches would be great videos too.

                            I actually wonder if any of these people actually even drink at all? They react to it like high school kids trying their very first drink lol 🤣

                                        I am more of a brandy person usually (Christian Brothers Very Smooth specifically) but a friend gave me some version of Makers Mark Bourbon I think it was the full flavored and it was a delight!

                                        Kind of had a bit of a fruity taste to it, not like as an additive but a very subtle natural sweetness.

                                                                                      You don't pound it like a shots of Jameson or Powers, kids. I'm sure you know this now after learning it the hard way.

                                                                                      You sip it. Many prefer it with a little ice. It's not required, but it can take the sting out of the higher proof stuff.

                                                                                      Also, it makes nice boozy sipping cocktails (the Bourbon Old Fashioned or Mint Julep) as long as you use plenty of ice.
