Do you have a stake in the Beam conglomerate? I'll see what I can find. I've seen the honey at the liquor store but not the others.

Can't abide maple anything other than syrup. Brings back memories of a kid on the bus that used to smell of piss and maple something or other.

As soon as I smell it, my skin crawls. For some reason, real, actual maple syrup doesn't have that effect.

Otherwise, I'll give those a shot.

If my purchases went towards a stake in the company, I'd be the CEO. But, they don't.

I just really like their products. I've tried other brands & flavors, but they just don't satisfy me. I dunno?

My favorite is Blanton's

Crown Royal is Canadian; they're not allowed to make anything labeled as Bourbon - It would be grounds for an invasion.

Maker's Mark
Booker's
Baker's
Woodford Reserve
Buffalo Trace
Knob Creek
Bulleit (if I'm mixing with tea or lemonade)

I have not tried Roughstock yet; it's next on my list, but I believe it's not technically Bourbon, rather 'Montana Whiskey.'

My suggestion is to drink many different ones and often for your health. Just don't operate heavy machinery.

Not sure if it smells like it or not. I never took a whiff, just a few shots.
You taste the maple, but also the crown.

Apologies. And to think! I read an entire internet article involving no less than 3 "next" clicks before assuming I knew all there was to know. Call it a noob mistake.


Right now, the Woodford is tops on my list. It's got a nice aroma (kind of buttery vanilla) that I particularly like.

Bourbon, whiskey, scotch, its all does the same thing.
Gets you ****ed up while tasting good.

ElkhornRanch 07-22-2013 07:40 PM

If you can find it, try Four Roses. They are just across the street from Jim Beam.

Good Stuff.

Although the product generally meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon, the company disavows this classification and markets it simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-CowderyMyths_4-0 sizset="false" sizcache09257214769332928="38 105 33" jQuery18307131889383270435="37">[</SUP>

Makers Mark is my current weapon of choice

For a good cheap, every day type bourbon I go with W.L. Weller Special Reserve. A 1.75 is only about $24 in some places and it's 90proof. Many of my friends have converted to this as well. It is now distilled by Buffalo Trace (which is another good one). Old Forester is another good one that's generally just a couple bucks more than Weller.

For better sipping...
Booker's (my personal favorite but most expensive on this list)
Basil Hayden

Maker's has great advertising and the dipped wax bottle is great but isn't my favorite. It's not bad but I would take a 1792, Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, or any of the other's I've mentioned first.

Jack Daniel's is a whiskey, not a bourbon. It does not have to be made in Kentucky to be bourbon but there are certain rules to be classified as bourbon (such as made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn, and aged in new, charred-oak barrels). If I remember correctly, about 90-95% of bourbon comes from Kentucky.
