Makers 46 is even nicer.
I love Makers, Woodford, and Knob Creek. I also like Bookers (actually made by Jim Beam), but it is a little $$ and strong. Want to try Makers 46 next.
I tried to get into Scotch, but just can't do it. Like bourbon or Irish Whiskey much better.
I personally like Very Old Barton for a cheap bourbon, very smooth and drinkable, mixes well also. "On February 16, 2011, Very Old Barton 100 proof tied with Evian Williams "Black Label" as "Best Buy Whisky of the Year" in the 17th Annual Whiskey Advocate Whisky Awards." Everyone is raving over the high end bourbons, and I will not argue, but I feel some of the real gems are some of affordable bourbons. That being said I learned to drink on bottom of the barrel Early Times, A friends Dad worked for ET and could get it free, Now Jim Beam is selling bottom of the barrel Beam as Devil's Cut. Maybe that I am spoiled living within 50 miles of most all the distilleries of bourbon and having access to most all the great labels. One last note, and I will applaud those who know the right answer, What is the difference between Bourbon and aged whisky? Second question What is the difference between whisky and whiskey other than the obvious spelling?
Whiskey is and American product, whisky can be made anywhere. Dawg is mostly right, with the exception that 97% of all bourbon comes from Kentucky,
