Anyone ever try McKendric? It's quite a bit different from other American whiskeys because it's filtered with mesquite chips. Gives it a sweet, woody quality that's quite a shock at first, but grows on you after a while. The bottle's interesting too...it comes with a leather band about three inches wide around it. I can usually find it for $20 across the state line in SC.
