without question, bourbon consumption is THE most American thing i do. i have consumed at least 1 bottle (likely more) of each of the following in their entirey. ALWAYS neat. a few may only be close cousins of actual/by-definition bourbon, but they are included none-the-less.

disclaimer: i will never spend more than $100 on a bottle of alcohol. EVER. though i do save certain bottles (generally higher proof) for special occassions”, bourbon is for drinking, not displaying, fantasizing, or boasting about.
