I saw some posts on 'sipping whiskey'. I guess they say that Jack Daniels is Sipping Whiskey. Well... I am wondering which whiskeys are NOT sipping whiskeys. I am not sure if I am a sipper. Some whiskey's have a lot of bite and you either 'sip' them or you can (but I never do) just down a shot and get it over with! Fine whiskeys like Weller's, Bulleit, 4 Roses etc... I seem to not notice a bite at all! I tend to nearly drink these whiskeys. I found that a lower shelf whiskey such as TW Samuels, I tend to 'aspirate' or 'sip' because to drink it is a little on the rough side. Its like HOT TEA.... you gotta cool it off or something..... Now a richer whiskey say like Basil Haydn's I might sip more because it has so much taste, it doesn't take much to get a lot of flavor! I think the more expensive whiskey's like small batch 4 Roses etc... fall into this category....

So when a person talks about 'sippin whiskey'.... what is that?
