They certainly can be tasty. It's easy to convey "Jack & Coke" in a loud bar.
This is a little bit off topic, but this is a nice liquor to share around the holidays...
I get some local apple cider and the little bag of steeping spices and slowly, very slowly warm it up on the stove. Then I toss a hefty shot of this Laird's Applejack in a big coffee cup along with the cider and man, that's good stuff
I think it is okay to contrast or suggest other spirits with bourbon on a bourbon thread.
Thanks for your post!
Is it hot?
Is it balanced?
Any particular comparisons to familiar things like cinamon, nuts, or herbs or fruit?
It has subtle flavours of caramel and spices, with a hint of dark licorice and vanilla with a decent balance drinking at room temperature...I love the spice flavours in the after taste...
Right now drinking a New Castle beer...
If anyone is looking for a whisky with lots of spicey flavors, this is one to try. Compass Box Spice Tree.
I purchased these two bottles this past Thursday. I briefly tried the Lagavulin today. The smokey , peat smell is not the same strength as the normal Lagavulin line. I would give it 85/100.
Your Montgomery Scott Scotch Awaits
Not a scotch fan but maybe some James T Kirk Reserve would be tasty
I'm drinking a 2013 Malbec from Argentina and wow!...It is a smooth and very flavourful wine, damn it is a good one too...
So you can also have fun with a bottle of Jim Beam....
Perhaps the poor man’s Star Trek bourbon?
You can say stuff like,
“Beam Me Up!”
“Jim, Jim Kirk...”
“He’s dead, Jim”
Regular old Jim Beam
WHEN I Ordered shots it was always Jameson, and when I ordered neat, it was always high brow stuff. When I went to parties there was always something else to try. I ignored Jim Beam as a one of those bottom shelf Bourbons. Then a neat pour was handed to me.
“Hey this is really nice, what is it.”
“WOW... no kidding?”
A few weeks went by.
An open bar offered JB or Jack, so I ordered Jim Beam and really enjoyed it with a nice plate of cheese and bread.
Sure, there are much higher rated Bourbons, but I think Jim Beam is pretty decent.
11.99 + tax for a fifth of good old Jim Beam... There must be something wrong with a bourbon that cheap, right? Nope...
Earlier today I attended an xmas lunch for the managers of the business I work at, we had an open bar too and this bourbon was the best one the bar had today, so this is what I was drinking along with a couple new castle beers...Drank this bourbon straight up like I normally do when drinking liquor...
My 65th birthday is fast approaching in a week and a half. I have been trying to come up with the whisky or bourbon I want to drink that day. I have a Montecristo No. 2 (Cuban) lined up to smoke. I just want something special for my whisky of choice. Perhaps an Islay whisky??
Have you tried this before?...

No. As I understand it, President's Choice will only be offered at the new Old Forester distillery and select Kentucky stores.
