    Chuck, I'm currious to why there is only one Barton product on the list? I would muck rather drink Tom Moore Bib. or Ridgemont over a few other options on the board. Hope my opinion helps.

    Re: What Would You Drink In A Pinch?

    i dont think there's any bourbon thats undrinkable, that said i think old crow is a fine choice for mixed drinks and occasionally neat. actually i buy it by the 1.75L!

    I was trying to keep the list fairly short, limited to "standard" whiskeys (which would exclude 1792), and limited to whiskeys that are widely available (hence no VOB or, for that matter, Tom Moore). Ten High is the most widely available "mainstream" American whiskey from Barton.

    Re: What Would You Drink In A Pinch?

    I've decided that most everything is drinkable in a pinch liquors that I've never tasted before including non-bourbon liquor. One catch, there is never in a pinch. I drink a drink because I made a conscious decision to have a drink. If only a lower shelve drink is available so be it. You never know you may find something that you like.

    I hope this does not offend anyone. I may add this is after a finger of Weller Antique and Eagle Rare 101.
