Man, Whisky is pretty manly, but I think I'll have to stay with my Rum and cokes, it goes down alot better. I really just can't stomach Whiskey at all.

I've never seen it that high. the bottles I have seen, sampled, were like 106 point something or other.

Best bourbon that Jim Beam makes. It has a very distinct flavor.

Baker's Bourbon 7 Year 107 proof

"My Bourbon follows our Beam family tradition of putting our best
secrets inside the bottle, not here on the label. I've distilled six
generations of Bourbon skill into this bottle. (That's a lot of secrets!)
Please savor its smooth flavor over ice, with a splash of water, or
however you take your Bourbon." Baker Beam

Made from the recipe preferred by Baker Beam, grand nephew of the
legendary Jim Beam, Baker's Bourbon embodies over six generations of
distilling experience. Baker's Bourbon utilizes a special strain of jug
yeast that has been in the Baker's family for over 60 years. This time tested yeast
provides Baker's with a silky smooth texture and consistent taste from batch to
batch. The mix of grains, yeast and seven soothing years in new oak combine to
give this bourbon a deeply mellow, richly flavorful, medium bodied taste. Baker's is
best served in a snifter with a splash of spring water.

Bakerís is a remarkably smooth bourbon. Intensely flavorful, full-bodied and ideally
balanced, it is preferred by Cognac aficionados, making for an excellent after dinner
drink.

Age: 7 years

Proof: 107

Color: Warm amber, tawny, nut brown

Aroma: Fruit, vanilla, caramel

Taste: Toasted nuts, fruit, vanilla, silky texture

Finish: Sweet, smooth, medium-long

Award: Gold Medal Bourbon - Wine Enthusiast

Comments: "Bakerís is elegant and well-balanced in the palate with a clean finish
that follows round smooth flavors of vanilla and caramel." - Wine Spectator

Well, as this site says, it is kinda complex (it also puts the proof range in the area you thought, I am either halucinating or... hell I don't know) -

Along the same vein of uncut bourbon, Wild Turkey produces a very good one called Rare Breed.

I also love Jamison chilled to shoot. While many will say you shouldn't chill it, its hard enough getting people to take it when you're buying a round of shots, so you gotta give somewhat.

I haven't even found a bar that carries it, so I am stuck with buying a bottle if I want to try it. And actually, that would probably be best anyway, I know after I sample it I will want my own bottle, so why not just cut to the chase?

I have nothing but a bad memory of that bourbon. Willing to try anything Turkey I picked a botlle up a couple of years ago. I think it was actually what I ate that made me sick to my stomach, but after throwing up after less than a glass I gave the bottle to my old man. Part of me wants to try it agian as I enjoy a fine bourbon, but I just haven't been able to bring myself to it.

Oh sure. My 18 year old Macallan runs about $130-140 a bottle. The 25 is upwards of $300, and the 30 would probably be around $500. I've seen the crazy expense bottles of scotch at the local upscale liquor store in the $5K range - some 50 year old Macallan, along with other brands I've never heard of because I'm not ridiculously wealthy.

The most expensive stuff at that liquor store was brandy, not scotch. They had a giant bottle of friggin brandy that was marked at around $8K. :eek:

I went to visit one of my former students a couple weekend ago. He is a new prof. We went to the campus inn to sample their Scotch. I looked over the menu and selected a Macallan 12 yr at $8 a pour and ordered them with just a little water added. The bartender fumbles around with the glasses and askes if it is okay to use a Old Fashion glass since it is her first day and she can't find the right glasses. Okay by us. She fills one about a 1/3 full. Then she fills the other one even higher, then goes back and evens up the other one. Must have been 3-1/2 shots in each glass.

Classic Ten-10 year old CC...if you try the Classic 15...it is too sweet. If you like Crown Royal, you will like Classic Ten..a little drier, with the CC twist, but extremely like Crown at 5 bucks a 750 less.

Day to day - Ten High, cheap bastard.
Weekender/night on the town - Maker's Mark. Generally my drink of choice for any occasion, but a little $$ for day to day.
Special occasions - Glenmorangie.

Best I had - a buddy of mine's father bought a 5th of Jack Daniels the day my buddy was born, and gave it to him to open on his 21st B-day. that was a pretty sweet pour.

What I drink most of the time is Makers Mark. Favorite, to many. Glenlivet & Macallan make great whiskey.

My favorite bown liquor under $100 by far is Germain-Robin XO. Almost everyone I have ever given it to agrees. I did a cognac tasting this weekend with $350 bottles and they didn't come close.

I also like Gentleman Jack. It has a smoother taste compared to regular Jack. Gentleman Jack is more expensive, but worth it.

Just for the record Germain-Robin was rated by Robb report as the best liquor in the world at any price. Their most expensive is $350 2nd most expensive I can pick up for $95. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself some time you'll thank me later.

Knob Creek is the best.

Anything Jack Daniels except single barrel.

Basil Hadens - a lighter, wheatier tasting bourbon
Thomas Jefferson Private Reserve- Very dark slow drinking bourbon
Woodford - Middle of the road between wheat and sour mash, very good sippen whiskey either neat or on the rocks

Hands down Crown Royal, after its been in the freezer for awhile. My pals and I call it "Blues Fluid" because we shoot it straight out of the freezer when we get together and do music.

I've tried Gentleman Jack and Knob Creek. Both a little rough.

When I was in college and wanted to get seriously faced, we'd do "Wild Turkey Shootouts," where 2 guys square off, shoot Wild Turkey till one guy falls under the table.

Used to drink Jim Beam playing poker.

Beam, Old Grandad, Seagrams 7, Canadian Mist and Turkey are all pretty rough.

A little bit of Jack Daniels is OK, but Crown Royal is by far the smoothest and best IMHO.

It depends on what kind of money I have to spend...

Canadian Mist isn't bad for cheap whiskey, then I go with JD, and when I've got money to blow I buy Crown Royal. Maker's Mark is awesome too though. I usually drink Whiskey with coke, but if I'm just drinking whiskey and soda water or whiskey on the rocks it has to be Maker's

I drink Maker's Mark when home in KC. BUT a friend turned me on to Buffalo Trace. It is THE BEST I've ever had that's not ridiculously priced.

Oddly enough I've found it in a couple of places that I never thought I would. Salt Lake City and Rochester, MN. I'm in Mesa, AZ 'til Thursday and am going to see if I can find any. It has shown up in more places than they show on their website.

Yeah, they have screwy liquor laws there. I'm not sure if it was state run or not. I was just surprised to find it there. The guy who rang up my bill didn't know anything about Buffalo Trace and hadn't seen it before. He was pretty young and was probably a part-timer. I don't remember it being exceptionally pricey.

Try Classic 10, you will enjoy it. For years, every one was saying, "Try this" and "Try that" "THis is just as good as Crown"...I tried them and didn't like them. Classic 10 is a big seller around Olathe....and I actually like it better than Crown.

Really?

It is a tier above Knob. It is ideal neat w/ a splash of water. Damn, sounds good too bad I gave up drinking. Quit for 9 years before. Like it too much you know. Woodford is well worth the 30 bucks or so per bottle.

Woodford Reserve is a pretty decent bourbon that I forgot to mention last night. I still have a little bit in one of my flasks that I need to kill off.


For all of you Crown drinkers, check out Forty Creek Barrel Select (I've pimped this in the drinking thread a couple of times, but since we have a thread dedicated to whiskey...). This stuff is rated higher than Crown Reserve, and cheaper than regular Crown. It is a very smooth whiskey. If you like the Canadian style, give it a try. I'm a bourbon man and I like to keep a bottle of this stuff around for my sipping pleasure.

However given my choice I would drink Whisky as in Single Malt.

Oh whiskey you're me darlin' drunk or sober.

Oh, love fare thee well

Don't take me daughter from me

And after death me ghost will haunt you

That is Whisky not Whiskey when you drink Scotch.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisky

Whisky comes from the Gaelic uisge/uisce beatha (IPA: [ɪʃkʲə bʲahə]) meaning "water of life", possibly modelled on the Latin phrase aqua vitae. The spelling whisky (plural whiskies) is generally used for whiskies distilled in Scotland, Wales, Canada, and Japan, while whiskey is used for the spirits distilled in Ireland. A 1968 directive of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives specifies "whisky" as the official U.S. spelling, but allows labeling as "whiskey" in deference to tradition; most U.S. producers still use the latter spelling. A mnemonic used to remember which spelling is used is that "Ireland" and "United States" have at least one "e" in their names, while "Scotland", "Canada" and "Japan" do not. International law reserves the term "Scotch whisky" to those whiskies produced in Scotland. Whiskies produced in other countries may not use the terms Scots, Scotch, Scotland, or Scottish. Similar conventions exist for "Irish whiskey", "Canadian whisky", and "bourbon whiskey". In North America and parts of Continental Europe, the abbreviated term "Scotch" is usually used for "Scotch whisky". In England, Scotland, and Wales, the term "whisky" almost always refers to "Scotch whisky", and the term "Scotch" is rarely used by itself. In Welsh the forms wisgi, wysgi and chwisgi are all used. Craythur is another term for whiskey in Ireland.

Black Bush (which is Bushmill's special reserve)

It is <i>good</i> Irish whiskey. Take a sip of it and you can see why it costs more than most; it doesn't taste like varnish mixed w/ ethanol. It actually has a flavor that can be enjoyed :thumb:

I recommend the following single malts:

Aberlour A'bunadh- a cask strength single malt with a heavy sherry flavor (liked by most that sample it---when appropriately mixed with water)

Laphroaig 15 yo- my favorite islay malt, and not that much more expensive than the 10 yo (either loved or hated, as some find it "medicine-y")
