I went to the ABC store the other day to pick up some Scotch, but then I saw this and had an AAD attack and had to have it. As you can see it's Old Forester Whiskey in a special 75th Aniversary of the Prohibition Repeal set; came with a special glass, a scroll with a copy of the 21st Amendment and the whisky in a specially labeled bottle. It is very smooth.

Yep! I usually take mine on the rocks with a splash of spring water.

It's just about closing time and I'm looking forward to some of that sweet nectar.

My everyday pours rotate between Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, and Elijah Craig 12yr.
Those are supplemented usually by Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Four Roses Small Batch or Single Barrel.
I was lucky to be gifted a bottle of Elijah Craig 18yr and Hudon Four Grain Bourbon (from Tuthilltown Distillery, a new distillery in New York). The Hudson tastes like Elmer T. Lee with some pine in it.

I love bourbon. I have a few favorites. Elijah Craigh 18 is one. I also like George Dickel barrel select. Also, I like Bookers alot.

For mixing, I use Jim Beam. I tried one called Old Whiskey River which is supposed to be a small batch, but it seems like Jim Beam to me.

I finally found a liquor store in the area that has an AMAZING selection of bourbons, cheap too. Picked up a bottle of Old Forrester's Birthday Bourbon 2008. It's good. Very well balanced. I definitely enjoy drinking it, but there's nothing there that makes me say "Wow!" or make it stand out compared to other bottles in the low $40 price range - I'd rather go for Four Roses Single Barrel or Basil Haydens. Next time I go I think I'll have to pick up a bottle of Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel, since I'm a big Buffalo Trace/ Elmer T Lee/ Eagle Rare/ Blanton's (heck, is there anything they make that isn't awesome?) fan.

Wound up not getting the Old Forrester. I had an itch for Jack Daniels Black Label as it was my birthday this weekend and I haven't had any JD for years. Forgot how it could sneak up on you though, after a couple mixed with spring water and ice I was feeling fine..... drunken Sleep

I recently picked up a bottle of Old Forrester 86 proof. Far from being one the best around but at $12 per bottle it ain't half bad. Makes a respectable Manhattan.
