Some good stuff mentioned. I have a hard time finding Van Winkle stuff these days - I never see my old fave 'Lot B' bourbon or their 13 year old rye anymore - I've still got a couple bottles of the rye here, when it's gone, it's gone. Van Winkle joined up with the Sazerac folks, and their distribution is much wider - which means the treats tend to disperse quickly. Eh, I had fun while it lasted.
Luckily my 'day to day' bourbon supply is fine, and I happen to like Wild Turkey 'Rare Breed' for a bit of an upgrade. It's not that expensive @ Costco. Some of the spendier upscale Wild Turkey offerings are good, but at their price wasted on me I'm afraid. So Rare Breed it is.
I also celebrate with Bushmill's 'Black' label Irish or Powers 12 year and I like most of your peaty Islay stuff when it comes to Scotch. I'm pretty easy to please.
