I figured you’d use the lame rationale of “way too hot” = “I don’t like any high proof bourbon”. That rationale wouldn’t fly in an ESL creative writing clacouldss, and that definitely isn’t the case here.

Never mind that high proof bourbons come in a variety of styles and flavor profiles.  Never mind that some of the most desirable bourbons released annually are high proof (e.g. WIlliam Larue Weller, Thomas H Handy, George T Stagg, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, Stagg Jr, etc).  Never mind that industry professionals whose reviews are highly regarded by many bourbon aficionados, such as Fred Minnick, Jim Murray and Whisky Advocate, more often than not choose high proof bourbons as their Whiskey of the Year.  We’re supposed to believe their palates are all misguided, and yours is what we should subscribe to?  

Really? That's what you've got. Trying to cyber bully again? It's simple but I guess your not that bright. I don't like it

Cheer up, snowflake!

And it’s always amusing when someone accuses another of being “not that bright”, yet the accuser can’t figure out the difference between “your” and “you’re” grammatically.  Guess my jest about ESL creative writing struck a little too close to home........

Could care less about form. I type on an iPhone with Swype. I'm a content over form guy and not trying to impress anyone. You are still are pissing in the wind. Not impressing anyone. Never have. Never will. #61kallday 

Someone needs a hug and a cookie.  And that someone sure isn’t me..........

I’m partial to dark chocolate and walnut cookies.  Not a fan of snickerdoodles, though.

Merry Christmas to me.  

Had a '96 Clape Cornas this year, it was probably one of my 5 favorite WOTY.  Hope it shows we for you. 

Being as you are so partial to following critics blindly I'm surprised you're not a fan of the 5 time winner of America's favorite cookie as voted on by none other than Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart and Julia Child! So do you blindly follow Wilfred Wong, Suckling and Parker also? If a critic says it's great I guess that's fine by you. Baaaaaaa 

I don't like it. I'm allowed not to like things. I don't care what any critic says. I have poured it for several friends (some of whom you know) and they don't like it either. Simple as that! It's ok if you like it (even if you're  just pretending). But your cyber bully routine trying to convince yourself otherwise is quite tiresome. Play the grammar police some more as you're well on your way to being viewed as the rising star among forum curmudgeons. It's amusing to many of us. Too bad you can't see the PM's

Is it just me, or is the ‘What Are You Buying’ thread the last place on earth you’d expect a pissing match to break out??  😂 

Not just you. 
On topic, a magnum of NV Piper-Hiedsieck for $49.99.

And of all topics, it's about bourbon.


Talk about a slow day
