    The Bourbon Thread

    Post your faves here- here are a couple to get us started:

    Maker's Mark
    Knob Creek
    Woodford Reserve

    (just 'cause I didn't post Jack doesn't mean I don't like it- I thought I'd give Vega first dibs on that)

    Jack is not Bourbon. It needs to be made in Kentucky to be called Bourbon.

    Hmm- I don't know these- I'll have to check 'em out! As to Jack- I thought it was a Bourbon, due to its corn content. But actually, I think it's not a Bourbon because of the filtering and barrelling process that's used there.

    For 14.00 you get the 1/2 gallon plastic jug that doesnt break
    when you drop or throw it. Pop out that E-Z pour thing to facilitate
    larger gulps

    +1 for Maker's Mark. When I was younger and didn't have money for MM, I would buy T.W. Samuels. It is very similar and, way back when, was a lot cheaper.

    Darn it...why couldn't I read this thread last night? I have to drive this afternoon and now I'm thirsty.

    Maker's Mark, for sure.
    Wild Turkey is great too...more of a woody flavor, but not as smooth.
    Haven't tried Woodford Reserve, but I toured the distillery back in high school. Pretty cool operation.

    Having had them all, I must say it's woodford reserve. Not only have I drunk this nectar of the gods, but I have BIKED to their distillery and taken the full tour, complete with free tastings and free bourbon balls as well. e started from downtown frankfort and rode to versailles and back - approx a 40mile trip with some excellent scenery and a whole lot of cars going WTF?!

    End this tour with a stop at Rick's White-light diner. They let us in AFTER closing and still fed us and talked to us. Amazing folks.

    1) Booker's
    2) Maker's Mark

    I won't buy any other...I'll drink it if offered, but those are the only two you will see in my liquor cabinet.
