    My uncle loves Wild Turkey Rye, I haven't seen the Bourbon wild turkey before, I don't think the ABC store sells it in this area...?

    These are both really good. I haven't seen all of this thread, so apologies if Bulleit has been mentioned twenty times already.

    I have not tried that but I've had 'moonshine' made in the mountains of North Carolina, homemade clear and apple jack...

    The one advantage of having higher percentage alcohol is that it makes for a more flavorful bourbon/whisky.

    Age statements have their place, but a whisky made in India or Taiwan will age more quickly due to the heat and humidity of the location.

    Blended malts are bought by more people, but single malts are more coveted by connoisseurs.

    I always recommend that people get out of their comfort zones. Some drinkers only know Budweiser or Miller. Once they try something like a German beer they get a new viewpoint of how something good and different can taste like.

    I rarely meet a beer I don't like but did try some sort of vinegar beer on a pub crawl in Philadelphia once and it was vile. The bartender eagerly handed me a sample and was offended at the Popeye look I couldn't keep my face from screwing itself into. Blaaaaarrgh.

    I like it. For the price, it is damn good.

    Well, I did stop by the grocery this afternoon and picked up a six of Red Oak today, best served very very cold, its a stout beer but great flavour...The only place that sells it close to me is about a 40 minute drive so I don't get that way very often, but when I do I get a six of Red Oak and two pounds of ground Bison, the only place its sold around here too...:Whistle:

    I love the Jefferson’s Reserve bottle... it makes me imagine folks like Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, sitting at a table in a dusky house talking about their current goings-on in Early America.

    These bottles make me imagine ma and paw sitting on the porch of their freshly built cabin, sun just hinting on the horizon, fresh biscuits and honey on tin metal plates, as they each pour a ‘ bit o fuel’ into their fresh hot steaming coffee before beginning yet another day of tillin’ and plantin’ And tendin’ Animals.

    Damn that looks tasty! You shame me into admitting my unsophisticated drinking. I will have to upgrade my game.

    Oh, and for no particular reason I wish I were a Kentucky Colonel. Just sounds cool.
