As a Bourbon Badass, you don't need rules. You don't need someone else to tell you what you should or shouldn't like when it comes to drinking Bourbon. Your journey is about diving in head first and discovering what you like. You are not afraid of trying something new or rediscovering something you did not like in the past.
Remember there is no right or wrong way to drink Bourbon, only YOUR way. Always take into account others' opinions and suggestions, but never forget you are in charge when it comes to your Bourbon adventure.
