Dang it.  I am going to have to stop at the package store on the way home tonight so I can try some.  So much for participating in the 2009 weight loss thread.

I was never a huge bourbon guy until a few years ago and I liked Jack well enough, he was a good guy, always treated me well.  Jim was a decent mixer when he stopped by, but my buddy who’s grandfather had passed away recently at the time asked me to toast his grandfather with some Blanton’s, which was his grandfather’s drink of choice.  So I did.  I have had trysts with other bottles, but I always come back to Blanton’s.  We always down a bottle at camp in VT.

I have a fondness for Knob Creek. I have found that the 1872 Ridgemont Reserve to my liking as well Bullet, Buffalo trace, Basil Hayden, Ejah Craig, and Makers Mark. I never turn down Wild Turkey or Jim Beam either. I just got into a bottle of Woodford Reserve and find it has a place in the cabinet also. I guess Blanton's should get a look now.

Best great bourbon for the money?

Evan Williams Single Barrel.   That's gooooood corn and half the price of many others.   Trust me on this one.

I'm with you on this one Scratch, but our state doesn't sell it in the stores any longer, so it's harder to get, so Knob Creek it is most of the time. I have grown fond of Pendleton as well for a lighter change.

Polecat – It was there to drink I believe Ted and Matt put a dent in it along with the two of us, so yes why bring home a partially empty bottle.

That being said, a sipping tequila could also come along next year.

I owe an apology to those at the last year's camp with polecat. He had me pick up a special bottle for him, which I did. I never shipped it up though and I think it was for bird camp. I haven't opened it, it should be fine next year.

I agree on the EW Scratch, WL Weller is good bang for the buck too. The Antique Weller is tasty, and slightly less than KC. I have had my share of different whisky, the 08 budget meant WL Weller most months.

Don't walk past a 30 dollar bottle of Rip Van Winkle 10 yr old, it'll go up against many pricier bourbons. the 12 yr old lot B for 40 aint bad either...

My palate is not as discriminating as some, but Knob Creek and bluegrass are like peas in a pod.

Some kinda thing with the all night pickers and a wood fire.

Two words for you boys who are obsessed (for whatever reason) with American bourbons:  Basil Hayden

Bookers is another favorite.  The last time I had it I was drinking doubles neat, five or six of them, before a Drive-by Truckers show.  

I recall it was the best damned show ever.  I don't remember much else.

Scotch is for sipping, Bourbon is for drinking.
