Visit decanter.com (http://www.decanter.com/specials/290931.html) to see their list of "Top 10 Whiskies for Christmas".
Any comments on the only bourbon to make the list?!

Probably one of the few widely available bourbons the Brits have available. Too bad for them.

That's what I thought at first too but a quick check of
American Whiskey at The Whiskey Exchange (http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/C-33.aspx?order=pricelowhigh) shows 172
products available. That said, decanter did qualify it
with "Very easy-drinking, and great value for money."
so if you take that into account perhaps MM was the
best choice, though if you sort by price low-to-high,
you have to click to page 4 to find MM - look at all the
choices you have before you get to it!

Then Beam must have given him a case for inspiration.

No other way to explain it.

MM seems to be the Rodney Dangerfield of bourbons. While my favorite pour is Pappy 20, and I appreciate the other wheaters and some ryed bourbons, too, MM is the yardstick I hold other bourbons up to. Guess you could say it's my standard pour. It is not brilliant, but it's very good, never disappoints and is good value for money. It will feature prominently in my holiday celebrations.
