You must live in a small village somewhere. In MDM land, the ladies drink bourbon.

And it's 'but I am convinced there IS none" - quality is singular.
I believe it would still be 'there are none' since he said "some redeeming qualities." If he said 'a redeeming quality,' then you would be correct.

Then again, I could be completely wrong.

I'm surprised Tony Baggadonuts doesn't support the drinking of Vanilla Whiskey-petite.

Personally I like my whiskey like I like my women: Thrown on the rocks.
thanx for the sig dirtbag.

That shit is so wrong on so many levels. First off, my bourbon already has flavor thank you very much. Secondly, it's Philips. I noticed all three flavors at one of my regular haunts and asked the bartender if it sells. He said some weekend regulars like shots of the Vanilla. I asked what they charge for it. $5.25 I think he said. I remember for sure that it was $.50 more than what a regular customer would pay for Knob Creek. What the fuck? And does anyone else agree that SoCo is an abomination and should not be allowed to call itself bourbon?

As far as the bartender being a jackass, well that was sexist, but I have found that a lot of bartenders just aren't used to real drinkers. Several times now I've not only had to explain what "neat" meant, but then was asked if I was sure. Do I look like the type of drinker who would be unsure?

It dulls pain, makes the sun shine brighter, and makes boring people more interesting.

Oh man, I've been asked to explain what "neat" meant too! I was completely taken aback.

As have I, and when I said "You know, just Bourbon with nothing else" I get a bewildered look.

Just tell the bartender next time that you're OCD and neat means that the glass better be clean. He won't even realize how stupid he really is.

I don't think they do... hold on, I'll Google that...

Good God, they have a terrible website. But they refer to their travesty as a liqueur, not a Bourbon. Thankfully.

I think it even says so on the bottle. And think real hard about what other booze it's sitting next to at the liqour store. Here's a product description from a different website:

http://www.bevmo.com/productinfo.asp?ar ... 0000001647

Southern Comfort is a blend of bourbon and fruit flavors that produce a slightly sweet drink that is great mixed with sweet & sour mix and ice.

Product Information

Company: Southern Comfort
Type: Bourbon
Style: Blended Bourbon
Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
