    When she finds out there's a load of bourbon at the local ABC, she leaves work to hit it up, and drags a coworker along to snag an extra bottle!

    Because we're just shy of the 25 year mark and she's still there..right there beside me.

    True blue, faithful as hell and arrow-straight.

    What I did was win the lottery.

    haha.

    Well, she married me, has stayed with me and gave me two great kids...

    That's enough to keep me content till I'm planted.

    The ol' lady strikes again! She's become a bourbon bloodhound... Can't remember the last time I had 3 bottles of Blanton's on the shelf...

    After living in KY for 7 or 8 years I kept trying to develop a taste for Blantons. Never did!

    Too many other better bourbons out there.

    Then I am not a Glock fan eiether

    Clearly you are broken... :p

    There are a ton of great bourbons out there. Many that are better than Blanton's, but at the ABC price point I don't know of any... On the secondary market, different story.

    Nothing wrong with Buffalo Trace!

    This Woodford or the Double Oaked are my personal every day sippers.

    It's all personal choice.

    God, I love America!

    Not a fan of liquor, but a huge fan of wives that are more like partners in crime.

    What are these limits you speak of? I did not know the ABC stores limit purchases. I have it pretty good. My wife supports my hobbies and funds thinks like this.

    A lady on the streets, and a freak in the sheets!! :p

    Seriously though...
    She prays with me, and she prays FOR me every single day!! When I’m with the choir on Sundays, and I look out in the congregation and see her with her eyes closed, hands up, singing and praising....wow....there are truly no words....

    And she buys me guns...BONUS!! :D

    I used to have them all. Disappeared in a move.

    They spell Blanton's and mimic the full range of horse galloping when in order...

    Because she puts up with me having to go to the hospital A LOT. I dont know many people that would want to deal with a person with a lot of medical issues but she does every time.

    I need to go look for some Buffalo Trace. I’m down to the last half bottle. Of course I have 7 fifths of Old Number 7 and 4 fifths of Gentleman Jack, 4 fifths of Single Barrel JD and 3 fifths of Winter white.
