    Re: Is this true?

    The canadian whiskeys are all blended, I would imagine that Crown Royal and Seagram's 7 are very different. I like crown royal, it's a summer afternoon drink for me. Mostly I drink Old Grand Dad 114,...

    The Thirsty Traveler brought me here some time ago. Now I've got, what, 250 posts? Bourbon is fun!

    Yeah, I don't think my wife really knows what we have. Let's see, I have Bookers, Old Grand Dad...

    I drink everything with exactly three cubes of ice. Always. I find if I order it this way, i don't get a glass full of crushed ice with a hint of bourbon in it (happened in Vegas with a pour of...

    Re: Bookers

    I drink Bookers the same as every other bourbon I drink: with three cubes of ice. I find that I like the coolness of the bourbon and this is how I enjoy it. Products like Bookers and OGD 114 stand up...

    Re: Newbie Intro

    Welcome to straight bourbon!

    I don't think of England as cowboy country, but it is beautiful. I had a lot of great walks through the countryside when I was there.

    Re: Bourbon Recommendations wanted.

    Old Grand Dad 114.

    Booker's.

    Give those a try if you like strong bourbons.

  7. Re: Putting together 4 -6 bottles as a gift for newbie.

    Price. Hmmm.

    I'm guessing it goes like this:

    Maker's Mark
    Knob Creek
    Eagle Rare 10yo single barrel (90 proof)
    Wild Turkey Rare Breed (not sure here, i've never bought this)
    Van Winkel 12yo...

    Re: Bourbon 101

    You've started with two solid bourbons at a good price point.

    I would also look for:

    Elijah Craig 12 year old
    Elmer T. Lee
    Evan Williams Single Barrell
    Old Grand Dad 114 (will give you a...

    Re: Ol Grand Dad

    I really like the OGD 114. Excellent bourbon.

    As for the loss of the 100 proof bourbons, I am wondering if the increase in demand for fine bourbon has resulted in the reduced proof. There is a...

    I tried to order this once, but when I ordered "Beam Black" they poured me a glass of Jack Daniels Single Barrell. I didn't complain :-)

    I would love to know where some of you who like it...

    Re: Need some advice...

    Skip the Bulleit and get Elmer T. Lee as a nice bourbon that will be very different from the Rye of the Rittenhouse.

    Re: Relative newbie; what to try next?

    I would give a hearty recommendation to the Elijah Craig 18yo. It is my favorite bourbon. Extremely complex, it really stands out. My friend who isn't much of a bourbon guy but tries everything I...

    Re: greetings...

    My suggestion would be Evan Williams Single Barrel. It's mid 80's proof, very smooth, and a nice overall pour. I think you will find it's got a lot of flavor but not a lot of burn.

    Re: Greetings!

    Welcome!

    I am not familiar with that particular bourbon, but if you want to try a very complex bourbon that's not too expensive, go for a bottle of Elijah Craig 18yo.

  16. Re: Need some advice from those "in the know"

    I think Maker's Mark is the perfect place to start. It's a good baseline, it's a quality pour, and it's a great introduction to bourbon. You will, over time, find other bourbons you like better, but...

    Re: Hi folks! Buying my first bottle...

    My recommendation for a first bottle would be Maker's Mark or Elmer T. Lee. Both are very nice bourbons that are good intros to the premium bourbon world but won't nuke your wallet.

    Re: Trying something new.....Bourbon

    Another reasonably priced good introduction to bourbon is Maker's Mark. That's where I started. It isn't a world beater, but it's always a good pour and worth having around. If you want something...

  21. Re: Your Favorite Bottle before you had a pour.

    My favorite bottle shape is Blantons. I loved the bottle for Woodford Reserve before I tasted it. It was a huge disappointment for me.

    Your list doesn't include my two favorite bourbons: Elijah Craig 18 yo and Blanton's. Give one or both of them a try.

    Re: Want To Try A New Brand

    My favorite scotch is Macallan 18, but that's rather pricey. Another scotch you should try is Laophraig 10. Not too expensive, and very, very different. It's a peat bog in a glass!

    Re: Want To Try A New Brand

    I used to drink Johnny Walker Black & JD. I then tried Glenmorangie 12 yo Sherrie Wood Cask, which is quite good. Maker's Mark got me started on bourbon. So I think I had a pretty similar profile as...

    Re: Help me round out my collection

    Elijah Craig 18 year old - A way to try another old bourbon at a very reasonable price. Still my favorite pour.

    Bookers - Gotta have at least one barrel proof bourbon.
