I think we are saying the same thing.
I have a buddy who had a glass of Pappy Van Winkle in a bar last year, and now swears all other bourbon is "crap." YoungAmerican's tone reminded me of this guy. I like Pappy, but I drink a ton of Wild Turkey, and if I go to a bar that is serving 10 cent shots of Wild Turkey, I'm gonna brag about it.
Finally an analogy this bourbon drinker can totally relate with.
