I just bought a brand of bourbon other than my usual, because I’m out of my usual and my liquor store is out of glass bottles of the stuff I drink. They have it in plastic bottles. What man drinks his bourbon out of a plastic bottle?

My day did not go quite as planned. My dear mother has some chronic health problems that occasionally necessitate a trip to the ER. This was one of those days. My burden is light compared to the patient, obviously, but after a day spent on ER time, I was admittedly a wee bit frazzled. After […]

“Despite the increase in distillation over the past few years,” says the Buffalo Trace Distillery, “bourbon demand still outpaces supply.” That goes for fine scotch and other top-shelf potables as well, all of which became trendy overnight. “Ten years ago everybody drank vodka, and Scotch was something you kept around for when your dad visited.
