We have Bourbon flavored ice cream; cakes; bacon and hams; etc....

Are you on or off the Bourbon train? Does Bourbon bring magic to (almost) everything it blesses?

@tsarstepan,
They're not my favourite biscuits, but they are better than oreos.

I prefer custard creams.

@izzythepush,
I wonder if I can find them in the many Anglophile shops here in NYC? I'll tweet a couple of them on Twitter.

@tsarstepan,
bourbon is a step down in flavor from a good smoky single malt scotch.
Its our sippin whisky but when I drank, I always preferred a mint julep.
Bourbon sauces etc dont do much for me because most of them tried to "balance" the flavors with too much salt.

One of my favorite steak houses, De Starr's near Pottstown Pa, had a bourbon sauce that was waaay too much in the other direction, too damn sweet.
I dont care for vodka sauce either, same reason, balancing flavors..

Cooking with a good wine or a sherry, great. Plying them into sauces for over-topping or burning in, not so good.

Sometimes, the item we eat should impart all the flavor needed. Like fresh scallops, they dont need any fancy sauces

@tsarstepan,
They make Bourbon biscuits in the Christie cookie factory about 10 minutes from my house. We can smell them baking the biscuits some nights. Other nights we smell Oreo biscuits being produced. Cloudy/rainy nights are the most cookie-scented.

Custard creams are better.

@ehBeth,
Peek Freans also make these.

If I was going to name them I wouldn't call them that. I'd call them ******* horribles because they are.

@farmerman,
I can't drink whisky, not since I drank a lot of it when I was 17. Put me off for life.
