    Pick a bottle, any bottle...

    If you had to pick a bottle at random to drink from any American distillery, which distillery would you choose? No picking product lines or styles, just name a distillery and whiskey from their barrels (that they distilled) goes into your bottle. For a distillery to qualify, you have to be able to walk into a liquor store and buy whiskey off the shelf that has been distilled on premise at your choice.

    We can break it down, too:

    A) Just one bottle.
    B) All you drink for a year are random bottles from said distillery.

    Wow - very tough call! I'd have to go with HH for variety purposes as well (although if someone told me I'd have to live with the pick the rest of my life - probably land on Four Roses!)

    Four Roses for me as well. If all I had to drink for the rest of my life was yellow label I don't think I would be that unhappy.

    A) Four Roses - I've never found an un-drinkable product from them. Sure, some I like more than others.
    B) Four Roses - yellow label to retailer barrel picks, so much variety and passion about their craft.

    I think I'd go Four Roses as well... Buffalo Trace in second due to breadth or product offering.
