It all depends..

Juleps - Makers
Manhattans - Basel Haydens
Sippin - Pappy Van Winkle
w/ Ginger Ale - Makers usually, but any will do

Jack Daniels is considered a Tennesee Whiskey because it is "charcoal mellowed" and swill

If I'm drinking it straight or with a few drops of water then I prefer something with more wheat like a Maker's or Old Fits. if I'm mixing then a Beam or any of the small batches they make (bakers etc). But if you are taking quality for the price and not cheapest i can buy without it tasting like burnt cork, then you have to try a Pappy Van Winkle. Hands down best bourbon in the world. If you want to find out a lot more then you would even want to know then head over to Straightbourbon.com. Basically it is the bourbon equivalent of this great forum. Nice, helpful people with a TON of knowledge and insight.

[quote=Richtee;97049]Is James B. Beam the finest for the price? I mean I have had Blanton's, Maker's,

Rich, not that I drink anymore and when I did I usually made my own. But for a off the shelf Bourbon I always thought Maker's Mark was the best available, but the price was a tad high considering my intake at the time.

Long story short I was flying a line that had a RON in California and went to the local Safeway, maybe it was an Albertson's now that I think about it and they had a house brand Kentucky Bourbon that even had the cap dipped in red wax! I'm telling you that in a side by side comparison it was an exact clone of Makers. Many friend tried to tell the difference and couldn't! I would get bottles of that stuff and refill my old makers bottle and people in Oregon never knew the difference.

I'm an Old Grand-Dad fan... at least for Q-ing. I don't drink much whiskey anymore, but I love the flavor in my Q...

My fav's
Bourbon = Makers
Scotch= Anything 12 years or older (if I can afford it)
Normaly I'm a wine drinker I like to drink wine from a local Vinyaryd called Kreutz Creek, good stuff and nice people too.

I typically drink whiskey, scotch, gin, or tequila. I would have to say that wild turkey and makers mark are my favorites in the bourbon realm. Whiskey, I'm all about Jack Daniels, Scotch I like Glenfidditch 12 year, Gin I like Bombay Sapphire, and Tequilla I'll drink just about anything. I like all of the drinks on the rocks, not too pollute it with sugary mixers.
