Yes, after sampling a fair variety of whisky in Scotland, that is what we brought back.

Knob Creeke is my favorite. Jack and Maker's Mark come in pretty close. I do alright with some Bulleit, too.

Jim if I'm having too many people over. Evan if we're already drunk.

I've found that whiskey isn't as popular on the west coast, particularly the NW, as it was in my native south, which works for me.
Typically heard on any given camping trip:
"Anyone got something to drink?"
"I've got whiskey."
"...anyone else got something to drink?" :mrgreen:


Dickel is my go to standard bourbon, better than Jack and cheaper, sometimes harder to find out here though. If I'm feeling a little more high falutin', I'll go for something a little higher on the shelf. I tried Elijah Craig recently, and didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't my favorite. Had some Buffalo Trace last week, which I liked a lot. Maker's is always a good bet, but I've been liking Bulleit the best lately (plus I feel like I could be hanging with Al Swearengen when I pour it.) Oh yeah, seeing Luke's post, Knob is a damn fine drink too.

My wife had buffalo trace at a friends recently and claimed it was good. So I bought a bottle of it to replace my midshelf spot (I usually have 3 whiskeys on hand) and it is not quite cutting it. Its better than my beam/evan, but its no woodsford or bulleit.

I'd agree with that, though I haven't had Woodsford. I picked up the Buffalo Trace b/c it was on a good sale, but normally I think it's like $5 more expensive than Bulleit. Funny how that works.

I also tried Jim Beam Black recently because it was on sale, and was pleasantly surprised.

In my early days of drinkin' it was Wild Turkey 101 all the time. Strange thing to start drinking on, my interest came from a boss I had at the time who drank it religiously and it was one of many items in Raoul Dukes' case of goodies in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (so it's gotta be cool, right?). Nowdays my whiskey drink of choice is probably good ol Pikesville Rye on the rocks, the price is right and to me it's damn tasty.

The Pikesville hangs out at home but if I'm out I mix it up between: Makers on the rocks, Jameson and Jim&Gingers.

Pikesville Rye also makes a fine Manhattan with orange bitters.

my personaly favs right now are Four Roses and also Elijah Craig 12 year old

but the question is what are you sipping tonight


The Elijah Craig 12 year old is my daily pour... lucky for me PA state stores only sell it in half gallon bottles - and it seems to be on sale every other month.

This pic is a few months old; the Eagle Rare and Bookers are both RIP, and there is also a handle of Jim Beam Black in there now.

Image

I got a free handle of Jim Beam white last year, and I've been using it as my DG flask drink... mostly because when I pull out the flask it gets shared - lol

P.S. I LOVE bourbon.


i completely forgot about eagle rare o my gosh how could i forget but the bookers is a little to strong for me i just cant get past the tast of the alchole taste but if you have never had woodfords sweet mash it is alot different than any other bourbon i have ever had (a little pricey for me around 100 a bottle) but the one bourbon i want to try is called Blantons it comes in a cool bottle that has a metal horse on the cork

but the good thing for me is the coffee shop i work at now has a bar and we have alot of higher end whiskeys so i can afford a glass of the high end stuff everyonce and awhile

I don't know if the processes of making whiskey have changed over time so I can't tell. A whiskey enthusiast told me that in Scotland there is a law that states that anything called a whiskey (or whatever the correct spelling is over there) has to matured in a cask for at least 3 years.

Spot the similarities to brewing beer: http://www.whisky.com/production.html
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

As a mildly experienced Whiskey/Bourbon drinker, I will certainly second Bills note on the Balvenie. Best scotch I have had, which is a pretty short list, but it is tasty. I have had much more experience with American whiskeys, and boubons are where it's at. Top shelf stuff includes Elijah Craig 18 year old, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, and any one of a number of other small batch products. If you are out at a bar, Makers on the rocks is hard to beat, sort of an industry standard, IMO. Both the 101 and 80 proof varieties of Wild Turkey are solid, and Woodford reserve has make a nice name for itsself. 1787 is an interesting product, a pour over ice give you a chance to experience a little bite at first, but it mellows nicely in a few minutes. If you are mixing, Jack, Jim, and GDickel are all fine, with Dickel being the sweetest. I once priced having an entire barrel of Jack Daniels bottled for me. 144 fifths of liquor, and the barrel it came from, all shipped to your door, for the low, low price of $7500. At least everyone would know what they were getting for Christmas!

Bourbon has its own laws to be called bourbon
1 made from 51% corn
2 has to be aged a min of 3 years in a brand new oak barrel
3 and can be no more than 135 proof

but here is the intersting part, the yeast that is used is most of the time to make bourbon is from the orginal string of yeast used a long time ago that is why most boubon is called "sour mash". now if the bourbon is called a "sweet mash" is made from a new string of yeast. just some random info

I was at a whiskey tasting a few days ago and the guy holding it said that particular legislation was great for the Irish and Scotch distilleries, who use their barrels for a long time. No need to cut down trees and spend the money to make new ones (those barrels aren't exactly cheap or quick to make properly), just buy the old ones from the States.

Probably originally introduced by people who sold oak. And coopers.
