Getting cold...favorite bourbon?


Recommended Posts

Two Barrels

I enjoy Rye Whiskey and Bulleit Rye makes a very good Old Fashioned.

 

Sazerac Rye is Unobtanium in my area of SC.

I have cheap tastes when it comes to Bourbon. I still think the Evan Williams Black Label drinks well out of its price range.   I took this photo last June for National Bourbon day  

In my circle of friends, drinking bourbon is euphemistically referred to as “sipping apple juice”. A gift from my son today:    

The man cave. Lots of dog doors.

Michter's - the Straight or American are both fantastic, but if you can get the 10, 20, or (bless you, you wealthy son-of-a-biscuit) the 25, all other bourbons pale in comparison. 

Widow Jane 10 year old - none of the others, I've just had the 10, but wow. 

Blanton's - A few years ago, I was able to pick up a few bottles in Louisville for $35 a bottle. Haven't found it for less than $60 since, if I could find it at all.

Larceny - a go-to bourbon for Manhattans, Mint Juleps, or a traditional Old Fashioned. Really any cocktail with Bourbon, this is the stuff.

Buffalo Trace - an excellent and inexpensive bourbon, also great for inclusion in food preparation and has a bit of sweetness to it that makes for really tasty glazes and marinades. Perfectly acceptable to sip while preparing the meal also, I rather enjoy it.

A buddy (?) borrowed my chamber and choke gauges and claims he lost them.  He showed up at the door yesterday with a brand new shiny set of Galazon gauges and a bottle of "Basil Hayden's" bourbon.  That stuff any good?  Is it worth forgiving him?...SelbyLowndes

Was gifted a bottle of Smooth Ambler Contradiction, might not replace my favorites but very drinkable $45 bottle.

Forgiveness is a personal thing, and up to you.  But Basil Hayden's is a pretty good drink.

I’m new to bourbon but I think I’ll have something out of my modest collection tonight.

Sipping the last of a bottle during the game.  I would say he is square.  All gone from the stores here for the year.

Cold night, the best whisky is not a bourbon but a scotch whiskey. Laphroaig . Nothing wrong with bourbon but Laphroaig pairs with cold weather

I just bought a bottle of Laphrohaig 16 for a gift for a friend a couple days ago.  $139 out the door locally in WA.
