The only booze I drink on a "regular " basis is Glenfidich 12 @ home very evening about 3 fingers worth.

Heard a lot about good bourbon whiskey. Used to try Jack Daniels in my youth & didn't care for it. I drink my whiskey straight on ice. Looking for a really good bourbon, that can be an alternative to what I'm currently drinking--also, my neighbor who is a retired Navy Chief from Tenn, comes over & I better have some good local whiskey.

Woodford Reserve is my pick if i want to splurge. Buffalo trace. Makers mark. JB is more of a bar/mixing bourbon but I haven't tried their Black or higher end stuff. You get old like me and realize there's not a thing wrong with Wild Turkey.

Frankly I think Jack Daniels is swill.

If you want some good sippin' whiskey, try Pendleton. While it's local here in Oregon (from Hood River) it's actually a smooth Canadian with a bit of a caramel taste.

Gentleman Jack isn't bad, I keep a bottle for a friend who rarely drinks. Myself I want something I can put olives in from the Olive Factory in

I'm also a fan of Woodford Reserve. However, my favorite is Very Old Barton. If I want a sippin' whiskey, Gentleman Jack is fine.

Best, Dennis

My home made shine, I figured out how many square inches of charred white oak I needed to make it in one gallon batches at least pretty close to it and seal the jars and let it age. Officially bourbon is supposed to be aged in white oak barrels for at minimum of three years

I have never had any make it to the three year mark, but it is real good at 3-6 months, all my friends love it too, smooth as silk, it runs right at 90 proof

It's all good; Canadian Club, Seagrams Seven, Crown. Had my first Crown Black
the other night, man-o-man, the real deal. Think I'll go fix one now.

For bourbon whiskey to be drunk neat or over ice, I recommend, not necessarily in this order:

Makers Mark

Eagle Rare Single Barrel

Knob Creek

Gentleman Jack (not a bourbon, but a damned good whiskey)

Makers Mark is probably the one to start on. By the way, find a 2" ice tray, and start with a single cube. It's really a good way to enjoy MM.
