    Try Forty Creek.  It's a Canadian Blend.  Visited the distillery while at Niagara Falls On The Lake this past Summer.  tasty

    Goody Goody in the Colony, I have found them to beat everybody's prices. Might have to try the 1835. They have another Texas Bourbon in Goody called Rebecca something, dont remember.

    Rebecca Creek is ok. I'm not a big fan of "spirit whiskeys", though.

    " 'Spirit Whiskey' as a combination of at least 5 percent whiskey and neutral spirit, i.e., vodka. " Usually done by a new distillery who hasn't been in business very long and doesn't have a lot of aged whiskey on hand. Seagram's Seven is kinda the same thing with 25% whiskey and 75% grain spirit. Ever since I heard that, I've kinda been staying away from "spirit whiskeys"

    I found 40 creek to be too sweet for my tastes. I feel the same way about Crown Royal.

    Put them all down and grab a bottle of Oban Single Malt Scotch
    That will be next time. Have to go out and buy it.

    into (and it's almost gone - big sigh) 12 year old Aberlour double cask Highland single malt - very nice for "cheap" scotch. 
    I wouldn't put cheap I parentheses. My stuff is usually 10-20 more. I will need to give that a try.

    I usually like Islay single malts (Caol Ila 18 or Lagavulin 16) but I have recently enjoyed Bushmills 16yo single malt which was amazingly good ($65 on Amazon). Found a bottle of Lagavulin Distiller's Edition which I might get into this weekend.

    I love 40 creek. Not to spendy either. It's a good change of pace from my Pendelton.

    Cool, wont waste  my money on it then. I find that after drinking makers and weller, Crown tastes like water. Just remember its never too early for Early Times, LOL

    What I learned about Forty Creek from the distillery tour was this;  They distill rye, barley, and corn separately, and age them separately for 6 to 10 years, then blend them together when they are right individually.  Then they are aged in used Sherry barrels for another 6 months before bottling.  That's why there is no "aged X years" on the label.
