Brand new to this site and I've heard great things about it.
I just got started in Bourbon. I dont know if people care but I've a huge scotch collection with a few bottles worth over $1000 and then a lot of the standard fare.
Bourbon has really won me over due to its great price and wonderful palate. I've since tried about 30 different bourbons and I love almost all of them...I'm only a bit standoffish on Bookers b/c it is so damned "hot".
So I'll just say it - I'm a snob. I dont usually drink low-end stuff. But recently I went through a bottle of "just" Jack Daniel's Black label and it was absolutely amazingly good to sip. I only drink neat w/ maybe water if it is too hot.
It gets me to wondering. What about those really low-end bourbons at the store? The names aren't coming to me real easy but things like "Old Times" or...hell, i cannot even think of names. How do they serve as just simple sippin whiskeys?
