    Is James B. Beam the finest for the price? I mean I have had Blanton's, Maker's, Booker's, Freakin' Ten High, Fighting ****, Woodbine's.... but dollars per lip smacks... whaddia bourbon fans say?

    PS..fresh mint and a bit of sugar are calling me... come...COME...build it and they will drink...

    The **** is decent priced, but Maker's up here is twice James... not got the lipsmack/buck appeal to me. Love it, but...

    I don't know depends on what kind of mood I'm in. Do you want black or white? Most of the time it's Turkey 101 for me[​IMG]
     
  9. 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

  16. 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.

    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.
