me: What’s that Traverse City Whiskey way up there?
liquor store woman: One’s a regular whiskey, the other’s ‘cherry.’
me: Is it bourbon?
her: It can’t be called a bourbon because it’s not made in the bourbon belt of Kentucky.
me: That’s not actually true.
her: It’s ‘American whiskey.’ (looks at me like, you don’t know what you’re talking about; is it worth getting into it with you…?)
me: (looks back at here, like, I know the rules of bourbon, don’t try me…)
[final note: it’s really good.]
