    Well being in TN it's jack all the way. Single barrel as its 86 proof like jack should be instead of the 80 the black label is. As for bourbon the woodford reserve is delicious and the best bourbon for a mint julep imo. Buffalo trace is also quite good.

    To be fair, that's a liquer and though scotch based, can't really be called "whisky" per se. Great to warm your guts on a cold evening though.

    I would call that a liqueur. With a vodka base, I believe.

    Now this is what we all need to get in the spirit

    The Whisky Advent Calendar
    (72cl, 0%)

    Interesting fact… The Whisky Advent Calendar whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be The Whisky Advent Calendar whiskey, instead of whisky.
    $240.53

    In stock, worldwide delivery available.
    Can be delivered within the UK the day after tomorrow (Wednesday 5th, Dec) if ordered in the next 20 hours and 24 minutes and selected at the checkout.

    Whisky Advent Calendar Bottling Note
    We love Christmas and we love the excitement of advent calendars, but we've always longed for something a little more interesting than a small piece of cheap milk chocolate on the other side of each door… Well folks, we've got the perfect solution - the Whisky Advent Calendar from Drinks by the Dram.

    Behind each of the 24 doors is a different 3cl sample of delicious whisky! We'll keep the contents a surprise, but we can tell you that behind one of the doors is a sample of 50 year old Scotch whisky, the full-sized bottle of which is worth £350!

    Merry Christmas!
    Shoot, I'm already 3 shots behind...

    What's your posion and why?

    I like a single malt scotch, not too peaty and not to medicine like. Soemwhere in between and I like a quinto rubana where teh scotch has taken on flavour from sitting in a port barrel for a few years.

    How about you? Or do you like lite beer with a nipple on the bottle?
    Just found this thread. This I can talk about. Quito Rubana is good. I prefer 21 year Old Pultney. Very light on the peat and the salty air of the highland coast makes for a smooth and complex finish. But that's when I'm drinking single malt scotch.

    Bourbon. Maker's Mark is the best bang for the buck, but my favorite is Elmer T. Lee. Lots of other good ones, but those are my top two.

If I'm going to drink a higher end whiskey, it's going to be a single malt.

    I suspect I won't like Honey Jack because I don't really care for sweet liquor, but thanks for the tip, guys. See? I knew there was some value in this forum here.
    I thought of you when I was at the Jack Daniel distillery last week. If I have to drink Jack, I'll drink the single barrel. Gentlemen Jack is too light for me. I've not tried the Green Label. They said it was a "Duty Free" exclusive now.

    I just found this in my local package store and I have to say it is divine.

    Nice to be thought of. I'm not a fan of Gentleman Jack at all. At that price, I can get Glenfiddich. But classic JD, well, that holds a special place in my heart...and my liver.

    Just put some Ginseng in it.

    Make it medicine.
    Mouth Boxers have not the testicular nor the spinal fortitude to be known.
    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    It's medicine without the ginseng

    You blasphemer you.

    Actually, with JD, it probably wouldn't make a difference. But with a fine single malt...BLASPHEMY!!!
