    What bourbon is best for cooking?

    I have been corresponding with someone who cooks as a serious hobby and uses bourbon in lots of sauces and gravies. We have been talking about what bourbons to use. I don't cook much, so I'm no expert, but I have always subscribed to the theory that you should always use the best ingredients you can afford, so good bourbon would be recommended for the best results. Does anyone have a contrary opinion? Any particular brands that you think cook better than others?

    Re: What bourbon is best for cooking?

    I'm not a real good cook but I do enjoy expermenting with different recipies from time to time. I once had a locally respected
    wine merchant and amateur gourmet cook tell me to cook with the best and drink the rest. Might also apply to bourbon I suspect.

    "Cook with the best and drink the rest" makes sense to me. By the way, I should have mentioned in the original post that my correspondent and I settled on Old Fitzgerald 1849 for his recipes.
