Wasn't sure where to start this, figured outdoor and rec people like bourbon!!

Been really getting into bourbon these past couple of years, tried a few Four Roses samples, was really impressed.

Any other bourbon drinkers out there?

Im a huge small batch bourbon fan. I drink everything from Makers Mark to Basil Hayden. Basil is what I consider the Top Dog. Give a yell if you want any ideas (PM is easier)

Bourbon is the only adult beverage I partake, these last few years. Knob Creek and Maker's Mark are my two favorites. A friend went to a Bourbon Tasting dinner hosted by Fred Noe and Fred said he does not care what bourbon you like, just find what suits you and enjoy. I agree with him.

I grew up in KY bourbon country and have tried just about all of them at one time or another. However, I've found that most traditional classic bourbons a little too sweet for my taste. I like the dark earthy woodsy taste like it was made deep back in a dark mossy hollow whiskeys and bourbons, with enough fire to let you know what you're drinking. Knob Creek is my regular favorite. Noah's Mill is my favorite special occasion. I'm also a big fan of TN whiskey, it's a little darker and rougher than KY bourbon. I will always love me some Jack Daniel's served neat, slightly chilled.
Almost forgot, I bought some White Dog from Buffalo Trace the other day just to try. 125 proof and taste just like you're drinking corn, but with a burn. I suppose it's just legal moonshine. I really like it a lot, but it should come with a warning label. You can quickly go from "Hmm, that's pretty good" to sweaty guy with no shirt swearing at traffic that parents tell their kids not to stare at.

OK, so I messed up the quote in my sig....I was probably on the downhill side of a few beers when I did it......Somebody say something funny so I can get a new one.

Is there a sampler kit of any kind to determine what I like best? I haven't found a brand I truly dislike or strongly prefer over others yet.

I don't know Fred but picked up some Maker's Mark to try out.

Makers Mark is my good stuff. I enjoy Jack Daniels green on the rocks as the usual stuff. Still looking for Basil Hayden.

My best friend was coming for a visit. His drink of choice was Knob Creek.
I bought a bottle but he couldn't make it.
I'm thinking great, what am I going to do with this now?
One sip and I had my answer.

Buffalo Trace is my current bottle of happiness. If you have a Costco near you that sells liquor the Kirkland brand Bourbon is extremly nice. Similiar to Makers 46, well according to my taste buds. Today there is not a cloud in the sky, back deck bourbon sunshine and nice packed bowl of tobac!!!! Life is almost perfect.

Try Jim Beam Black (probably the best quality for a reasonable price) and Four Roses Single Barrel.

For those who fight for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.
