Re: Maker's Mark -3% ABV

Southern Comfort did the same thing around roughly 2001 or 2002. 38% went down to 35%. It definitely was ersatz compared to the original dilution. Yes, yes, I know, they released the 100 proof for us alkies, so I took to buying a bottle of each and mixing them until I got something close to the orig...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Rittenhouse is free flowing again after a couple years, it seems. Just me and the bottled-in-bond, delish. . . .

Re: Drunk dial Thread

Drunk dialing on a rotary phone takes lots of skillz and patience (gin, actually).
