First/second/third world terminology refers to whether or not a country was allied with the US during the Cold War. First world = allied; second world = opposed; third world = neutral

It literally has nothing to do with how “developed” a country is

These terms are outdated and we need to stop using them

There’s a system of 7 worlds that deal with development of a nation. Remember kids Switzerland and Austria are 3rd World. But Rep Congo is 1st world :P

Bourbon master race

I always wondered: do bourbon and Tennessee whiskey brewers do the same thing as scotch whiskey brewers do where they keep the whiskey in wine barrels before they bottle it?

Not wine barrels, but barrels. They typically use hardwood barrels with the insides burned, which gives the bourbon it’s characteristically smokey flavor.

Why leave out plain Irish whiskey?
