JD is technically a straight bourbon. It fits all the regulatory criteria.
They could call it a Tennesseee Burbon but for some reason they don't.

To differentiate their charcoal filtration as I understand it.

No. Tennessee is in Kentucky now among other things wrong with that statement?

That's my understanding too. JD adds the sugar maple charcoal filtering process at the beginning to jump-start the aging process and give different flavor. So that takes it from a bourbon to a Tennessee Whiskey. There is debate to whether JD or George Dickel are bourbon or not. I guess technically/legally they are. But to me because of this extra charcoal filtering step, they are not. But that's probably the Kentucky in me.

If I remember correctly, about 90-95% of bourbon comes from Kentucky.

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.
Roughstock is right down the road from me. I have only had their flagship flavor. IT was a little harsher than some of the larger labels. Recently I have been sampling scotch and bourbon at our local whisky bar.
When I am at home I usually drink George Dickle. I know it's not technically a bourbon, but it is whats on the shelf.

Tried booker's last night. It's good, but a little stuff for casual drinking.

Jesus Christ some of you people are dumb. JD is NOT bourbon.
Bourbon MUST be made in Kentucky.

For cheap I like Ancient Ancient Age or Wild Turkey 101.

For a little classier I like Woodford Reserve or Knob Creek.

Love me some bourbon. I've recently found a liking for Old Fashioned's.

Old fashioned's are how I discovered bourbon in the first place... For me it's a 1/4 tsp of symple syrup, 3 dashes of Augustura bitters, twisty of lemon peel, and Beam. 3 big ice cubes and I'm good to go.

I don't think I'd use anything but cheap bourbon for mixing though.

Mostly I'm a single malt drinker but I do like the occasional boubon. Don't care for the super strong variety though.

Favorite is Makers Mark neat or with a sigle ice cube. A good one for the money is Old Forester on ice. As for non-bourbon whisky Crown Royal on ice with a splash of water is tough to beat.

I found that the crown diluted very easily on ice. I've started using whiskey stones for that one.

Some seem to hold up, but others just become a watery mess.

Straight Ten High tonight. 10$ for 1L and it's made it KY so it must be real bourbon
