It will be nothing exciting for a while, but so far...
Tried some brandy and cognac. Not bad, but I'll continue on the whiskeys for now. Going to be a slower process, as I decided to finish open bottles first, unless I can find 50 ML samples.
I also came up with a 5 star rating system. 2 stars for drinkability, 2 for flavor, and 1 possible bonus star for category favorite, good given price, something unique, etc. The bonus star is likely to be adjusted as I go.
Out of 5 Stars:
4 stars - Jim Beam White
2 stars - Jack Daniels #7
3 stars - Johnnie Walker Red
1.5 stars - Canadiian Mist
2.5 stars - Crown Royal
3 stars - Segram's Seven Crown
Many like Crown Royal, but given the price, I think there is better out there. I don't like its burn (odd, as I like this most times). I've always liked Segram's. Ok price, and just a good average whiskey. So far, tops on my list of Canadiian whiskey's.
So a few open bottles now finished. Next up, Wild Turkey (bourbon) and I think George Dickel (the other TN whiskey).
Also have some single malt scotches already purchased (Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, and Macallan).
Lastly, found a 50 ML of 12 year Dewars, so will be good to sip and compare to Johnnie Walker Black.
