    The "Unofficial" Ask Gillman thread

    Gary,


    I have a bottle of Wild Turkey Old #8 that just isn't quite cutting it for me. What do you suggest I blend it with to improve drinkability?


    thanks!

    Dear Mr. Gillman:

    I'm going on a diet. Do you know where I can get any of that "light" whiskey?

    What year is it?


    I have some 1980 yellowstone, and it is really woody with a ton of spice bite... I tried some weller 12, but it did nothing to tame it down. What should I mix it with?

    I'll bite, this once. Maker's, don't know and Four Roses Yellow Label.

    I tried.

    Scott,

    I drank QT light when it came out and that was around the time I started gaining weight.....obviously it didn't help me then.

    thanks!

    I think a splash of Stagg would do the trick.

    Maybe try doing a 50/50 with some WTRB.

    and also.... I know I am not Gary....(but I did stay at a Holiday inn)
    Cheers,

    Gary,


    I appreciate the advice. I will have to pick up a bottle of maker's mark and give that a shot!

    How about if I used it with light beer to make a light boilermaker?
