    Celebrity whiskeys?

    Bogie liked rye.

    I once heard Nixon loved scotch.

    Dostoyevsky drank brandy like a fish.

    Hemingway drank damn near everything.

    What was Dean Martin's favorite drink? What about Sinatra?

    Know any stories, or preferences?

    Sinatra was an early proponent of Jack Daniels.

    Bogart and Spencer Tracy were scotch fans though Bogart switched to Vodka near the end of his life.

    Sinatra and the rat pack were big JD drinkers. Babe Ruth drank rye.

    I had no idea Sinatra liked JD.

    I always thought Deano liked martinis.

    During an interview Mr. Martin referred to pouring a Scotch and soda.

    John Wayne drank Bourbon, no ice or mixer, just Bourbon and a glass.

    And it was probably a dirty glass. With a crack.
