Bourbon, Whiskey, Spirits thread


#101

@Monkey I need you to weigh in on this too, buddy.


#102

Evan Williams’ Single Barrell is FAR SUPERIOR to MM 46. Drinkable in all ways. Neat, water bloomed, ice…mixer. Ugh.

I give it 4.2 out of 5 possible Liver Failures.


#103

EWSB is my go to.

It’s as close as one can get to my absolute favorite, ETL.

I have a bottle and a half left of ETL but I save it for weddings and funerals. Even then the occasion has to be someone that really deserves the toast. Not just some chump from work or something.


#104

Seems like you can’t go wrong with Buffalo Trace Distilled hooch. My fave is Eagle Rare.


#105

Anybody else wholly unimpressed with Four Roses?

To me it tastes like tequila and scotch adopted a kid from Kentucky


#106

Nothing like bringing a hip flask to either.


#107

I have a 5 oz. hip flask of Pappy that I’m not drinking until my own funeral.


#108

At least you have something to look forward to.


#109

Open bar, closed casket.


#110

I’ll be there


#111

Anyone try any of that Dan Akroyd Vodka? It’s called Crystal Head.

@Monkey


#112

It’s garbage. Seriously. It tastes like rubbing alcohol. You’re paying for the celebrity attached to it and a skull bottle.


#113

Still my favorite…


#114

I hear a lot of good stuff about Willet.

I’m going to buy this soon. I had it on a cabin camping trip. I’m sure Monkey wouldn’t use it to clean windows, though.

I might have posted the wrong version. The stuff I’m after isn’t aged in bourbon barrels.


#115

I’ve actually had this a few times and I won’t turn my nose up at it so long as it’s free. It’s a bit too sweet and not smokey or peated whatsoever. This is not a Scotch by technique alone and really is more in the American whisky category.


#116

I just never got into Rye. I’ve bner had this one but it’s only because the characteristic rye profile just doesn’t do it for me.


#117

Same with that Tin Cup garbage. They are probably coming from the same vats.

Also, if you like Buffalo Trace then you are a cunt.


#118

I’m perilously close to starting a thread and asking Monkey to list his top 10 whiskeys. Or he could do it here and end it quietly.


#119

I don’t know that I have a whole 10???


#120

I mean, I’ve probably tried more than most people but I mainly stick to Willett Pot Still Reserve, Noah’s Mill and Rowan’s Creek…all Willett bourbons. If I am slumming I will drink Henderson blended whiskey, a very drinkable Texas juice.
