    What Would You Drink In A Pinch?

    I did this poll about 5 years ago. It's time to do it again.

    Hell, I'd drink toilet water if I was stuck in the desert...

    What defines a pinch? Some dive bar with JB and JD? Or is it a party with no bourbon period?

    Parameters PLEASE!!!

    Give me a minute.

    I couldn't figure out a way to do it with the board's poll function so we'll do it this way. What follows is a list of "standard" American whiskeys. Your job is to rate them 1 - 4, as follows.

    1 = drinkable anytime
    2 = drinkable in a pinch
    3 = undrinkable
    4 = don't know well enough to form an opinion

    Just copy the list below and add your ratings.

    Jim Beam White Label
    Jack Daniel's Black Label
    Evan Williams Black Label
    Early Times Kentucky Whisky
    Old Fitzgerald Prime
    Maker's Mark
    Wild Turkey 101
    Bulleit Bourbon
    Old Grand-Dad 86 proof
    George Dickel No. 12 Brand
    Ten High
    Buffalo Trace
    Old Crow

    Okay as much as I like to use JB White as my favorite whipping boy, there is not a bourbon on that list I consider undrinkable. Heck only two would be considered in a pinch.

    I am going to take a different route. I'll assume that there is a shelf in my bar and that is all it contains and there will never be another shipment. What order do they disappear? (This assumes that I drink the best first and let my taste buds slowly get used to the diminished quality)

    None of those bourbons or whiskeys is undrinkable! If any one considers them undrinkable I think they don't like whiskey.
