Well I tried the Old Crow, got a bottle for watching the election coverage drunken . I thought it was everybit as good as Jim Beam, and at $9.00 for a 750ml bottle, it's very affordable. I may have found a new bourbon.

I told you. It is good stuff!

But Jim Beam has a square bottle that won't roll away from you when you

I purchased a bottle of Buffalo Trace when I was in NY a few weeks ago and I didn't much care for it. That didn't stop me from drinking the whole bottle though. Very Happy

Anyone want to give their list of bourbons to stay away from? It seems even the low rent bourbons are pretty good (based on what I am reading here). Are there any I should be sure to avoid, as I explore this new world?

Actually there isn't a bourbon that I don't like lol! But sometimes I enjoy Basil Hayden (the wimpy bourbon) or Bulleit. The Old Frontier Whisky. And the old fall back on bourbon is Jim Beam Green label. I feel a bit parched, must go pour a wee bit. Very Happy Very Happy

Got a bottle of WT101, very smooth. But double the cost of the Old Crow, I'm not sure it's worth it, The Old Crow is pretty smooth too, less Alcohol content though pale .

It is hard to find a cheaper alternative to WT with the same alcohol volume. Ezra Brooks comes close at 90 proof but not quite as smooth as Old Crow. Not bad though at $10.95 a fifth here.

Got a pretty nice bonus this past friday so to celebrate I stopped off and picked up a bottle of Makers Mark, It seems many here are partial too it. It was good and smooth, but maybe it's just my deadened taste buds, it just didnt seem any better than any other higher end Bourbon, don't get me wrong it was good but I guess I just had the expectation of saying WOW! THIS IS GREAT! and it just didnt deliver that kind of reaction. Anyone out there suggest something that says WOW! THIS IS GREAT! something different than the ususal. Maybe I need to try a Scotch or something else alltogether?

I'm still a big fan of Maker's Mark, but as I try more good whisky, I've come to realize it's blended for smoothness rather than complexity. Consequently, they use a very low percentage of rye in their malt mixture. Good stuff, easy to sip, but not very interesting. Dollar for dollar, for me, Scotch and even Rye have more "WOW." (There must be a dust storm in my granfather's urn to hear me say that!)

I will say: Blanton's bourbon is wonderful and complex, but the price is a slap in the face--I've had exactly one bottle, given as a Christmas gift. Besides that, I don't know much... until recently, it was Beam on on the cheap, or Maker's when I was flush.

I must say the WT rye is a bit more complex (flavorful?) than the Makers Mark. So far it's got my vote too.

For an everyday Bourbon available to me: Woodford Reserve. Close second: Blanton's. Favorite overall: Pappy Van Winkle--but it's not distributed in my state.

I have several bottles of whiskeys open at any one time. I move back and forth. Usually, a couple of bourbons, a tennessee (Dickel), and a rye or two--right now Sazarec and Old Potrero. I have recently settled on Weller Antique as my "daily" sipper. Terrific taste at a reasonable price. I don't believe any of those Beam small batch blends are better--and they all cost more. For special occasions, I now use George Stagg--absolutely fantastic! It will knock your socks off--both with its terrific flavor and its power--141.8 proof. Parker's is another high-end that is a wonderful drink. I have a bottle--waiting for an occasion.

I just saw this thread...Interesting choices have been mentioned. But i have to say I really do like Jack Daniel. And, I'm just finishing up a bottle of Wild Turkey 101 (the neat thing was it came in a special gift pack with two glasses!)

I also enjoy Makers Mark, but again...JD is my first choice.

I saw mention on here of Wild Turkey rye...I saw some in the store, and having never drunk a rye whiskey, I almost bought it. But since I wasn't sure if I'd like it, I opted for the 101 (and the glasses!)

You should have opted for the WT Rye! Wish I could get it here!

Went by the local communist run ABC store today to pick up a half gal. of Old Crow and they had lowered the price of Old Charter by $2 so for a change of pace I picked up a half gal. of that instead.

It's about time for another ABC store run as I've finished off the WT Rye, the Makers Mark and am down to half a bottle of Old Crow. I might have to try a Scotch this time; any suggestions for a basic grade one?

Blended Scotch.....Dewars, Famous Grouse, Grant's (my fav), Pinch. I prefer these with a splash of soda (ice optional!)

Single Malts.....The Macallan (Original, not the Fine Oak version), Aberlour, Glendronach, Craggenmore (excellent before dinner), The Balvenie (especially the 12 year Doublewood), and Longmorn.

Not sure what's in your ABC store, but the above are few of the ones I enjoy! FTRPLT
