Which bourbon?

So do I hit the Four Roses Small Batch or some Buffalo Trace? Or take a fifth of Ultimate Vodka to the head? Decisions...decisions.

    Local party store where my daughter works had a whole barrel cased with their own logo.They also have the cask in their other location. I must of liked it. Think it was gone in a week.

    Oh my older brother helped some.

  • Four roses gets my vote. 100 bucks for oban is a little spendy for me.

    I wouldn't put cheap I parentheses. My stuff is usually 10-20 more. I will need to give that a try.

    I have to stop at about 50 bucks on the booze(once a year). Old Sheep Deep Dip is pretty good.Love single malt scotches.Still can't figure where I aquired the the taste for them. Like bourbons and Bombay Saffire. But as a good pollack I like my beer.But I can't stand any light beer. What a waste. A nice dry red wine works also.

  • How about a little Evan Williams Single Barrel 10 Year? Mighty tasty for an under $25 bottle!

    The nights I get into brown water, I usually wake up on the porch with the egg and pandora blasting. SWMBO leaves me there as punishment. So.... I bought some Woodford yesterday....

    @Chubbs-if you can find Woodford's Double Oaked (been in the market for aorund 8 months or so) it is much better (opinion only FWIW) but hard to find even in the land of Kentucky Jelly.  I prefer it to Van Winkle's 12 and 15 year old-don't spend the $$ for the 20 and up.

  • Bulleitt makes all better, frontier whiskey at it's finest poured over ice!!

  • for every day- Woodford (preferred) but more often Bulleit (really good for the money) special: Pappy Van Winkle but more often Jefferson's Presidential 18 Year Reserve

    For you Pappy fans out there - try the WL Weller. Same distributor. Pretty darn close, cheaper, and easier to find. It's my daily driver in an effort to save the small amount of Pappy I can get my hands on. Saw a couple people mention Bulleit. I'm not big on their bourbon but they make a darn good rye. Gonna have to take a flyer on the Woodford Double Oaked.

    DawgDays got it right... Weller is a nice wheated bourbon. Mix the 7 year with Diet Sierra Mist or sip the 12 year neat or on the rocks. Perfect drink to sip Egg-side.

    Is it smoother? What is the taste like?

  • Really into Buffalo Trace and Bulleit Rye right now, but we go through phases.  I will probably get in a Maker's phase late this spring.  Was in a Woodford phase last year.  It's all good though

    Drink Weller myself. I like the Makers Mark too but for the price, its hard to beat the Weller. Local store here had it for $28 for the 1.75

    Would that be Spec's? I get the 1.75 of Jack there for $29. I usually just get Jack or Turkey 101, but lately I've been liking 1835. I can get it for under $20. (This isn't my picture, I stole it somewhere online when I realized I didn't have a pic)

    I've seen the 1835 at Specs but haven't tried it yet...I'll have to rectify that. Props to Skiddymarker on the Aberlour 12-year old. Picked up a bottle earlier this week and am really enjoying it.
