    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    Haha I guess the spiced is aimed at the mixer market so no suprises there, maybe put it aside for when your bro comes round.
    Forgiven hey? Could you justify the added cost over the RB?

    No I cant justify the price, but id prefer Forgiven over RB to drink. If you can try mixing your own at about 70% 86.8, and 30% 101Rye. I should try the spiced in a mixer, havent done so yet. Its not a liquer like the honey, which I like BTW

    I tried the Spiced neat, and in a Mule (60ml Spiced, Squeeze of Lime and Ginger Beer over Ice) on Saturday night. I enjoyed it both times. Not something I'd drink neat daily, but certainly something I'd occasionally go to for a different style drink.

    I occasionally mix some WT101 with WTRye101 and like the results, but never have any 86.8proof stuff on hand, I cant stand it, I find it hard to believe it is related to the 101, its just so bad!
    The liquer is great though, actually tases like bourbon unlike some of the others.

    Cam has the right idea about the spiced, I imagine its meant to be captain morgan spiced or sailor jerry substitute, and a mule is a hard drink to beat on a balmy evening. I might be inclined to try the spiced with a mule alternatrive I sometimes enjoy which substitutes the ginger beer with Dr Pepper, not to everyones taste but great for a sweet tooth moment.

    I do enjoy mules generally, might have to give it a go, try putting a spash of ag. bitters in there also. As for the 86.8, I always have it on hand, but the 101 is better bourbon.

    Yes bitters I can definitely see that working, cheers!
    Quick show of hands-ginger beer means bundaberg ginger beer to you guys? IMO that stuff is unbeatable but I would love to be proven wrong, plus their sarsparilla is insane.

    I use Bundaberg if I have to, but much prefer the Rose River alcoholic range from Dan's. Their Honey flavoured Ginger Beer is unbeatable in a Mule IMO..... but I do have a sweet tooth

    I will look into it cam. Does it have much of a ginger "bite" like the bundy?

    Ive had Bundy and kirks (cheap) ginger beer, and they are both pretty good. Rose River sounds intriguing though.

    Can confirm from a few days ago that my local dan has collier and mckeel for $54 and a few cents, strange...
    Damn forgot to look for the ginger beer but picked up a buffalo trace instead
