Only the the good 'shine! As for Bourbon, always been a fan of Booker's and Baker's.
Moonshine...our very own Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster One drink and it feels like you've had your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon...wrapped around a larger gold brick.
I've lost place with a couple of days with that stuff before
Blanton's is my favorite, but I tend to reserve it for special occasions as it's a bit spendy. It can also be fun to collect the different horse corks (I'm still missing a few letters).
I also think Bulliet and Buffalo Trace are two of the best values in Bourbon.
Currently (though not at this moment) I'm working my way through a bottle of Eagle Rare (gift from my brother). Very tasty stuff. Unfortunately the bottle is almost gone...
Personally, bourbon is just about my favorite liquor. I'm certainly not well educated on the matter, but I prefer bourbon to either whiskey or scotch.
Like I said, I don't have much knowledge of the different kinds, but I like the Wild Turkey 101. I have tried Maker's Mark and Jim Beam and a few other brands, but find the Wild Turkey to be preferable.
Ah, man. Now I'm going to look like a jerk coming in right after someone who said bourbon is their favorite. I'm sorry, but I just can't stand it. And I've tried. In a pinch it'll do for a mixed drink, but there is something about the flavor that's just... harsh. I'll even drink rye before bourbon if given the option.
Give me a Bushmills or a nice scotch any day. The last scotch I really liked was Deanston Virgin Oak, but there is a bottle of the 1993 Glenrothes hiding in the back of my cupboard that tastes like caramel angel tears. Edradour is great too: There is a picture of the entire staff on the back of the label. All three of them. Until recently they were the smallest scotch distiller in the world, but I think they added an extra mash tun and now there is one that is smaller but has more employees, so they can kind of still claim that "smallest" title.
No hard feelings - personal taste is a highly subjective quality. Many of the things that we compare on here have some tangible material or performance statistics to compare. Even food has some nutritional variance. Liquor, on the other hand, is pretty much just a matter of taste (provided it doesn't make you go blind or violate tax laws).
Not too long ago, while in vegas (you know what they say about vegas).. I tried moonshine.. Similar experience to Catharine's experience, though, I was playing with knives and not bows.
managed to keep all of my fingers and toes that time..
+ 1 for Maker's Mark
There is a newer bourbon that gets its name from the Prohibition period its a 6yr old bourbon named Larceny. Google it. It is a very interesting story, or I thought it was. The few distilleries that were legal were overseen by a treasury agent Jon Fitzgerald yep from the Old Fitzgerald brand Bourbon. Good reading
I drove by the old distillery Old Forrester in Downtown Louisville today...thought of this threadAnd about a drink
I'm checking that out right now Thanks.
Been there before, did a job in there as a contractor years ago. We had to replace a valve on a tank, empty one of course, just my luck.
Well the buffalo trace is now gone so I am going to place an order online ( off the shelf selection here is woeful ) for some more bourbon. At the moment there is going to be a bottle each of bullliet, knob creek and wild turkey.
More recommendations are welcome

Current favorite is Woodford Reserve, followed by Elijah Craig 12 year.
I am a rookine bourbon drinker and am still finding my likes.
My most recent trials:
Not a jerk at all. Taste is definitely individual. I drink single malt as a rule and I currently still have a half bottle of thirty year old glenfiddich.
When I watch rugby though, I prefer bourbon and a beer chaser.

Forrrest. if your going the Wild Turkey route try some of their American Honey. while it is a weaker drink than full blown bourbon I have to say it is a really good if very cold. I store mine in the freezer for those sipping nights when I just don't want to go full on big boy proof.
I dunno. If you have to serve it ice cold to make it palatable, something's wrong.
That said, I've tried most of those new honey whiskeys, and the American Honey is the best of the bunch IMNSHO. Still, none of them is quite as satisfying as a good Rusty Nail made 4:1 with Dewar's or Grant's and Drambuie.
1792 Ridgemont Reserve - best bourbon I have ever tasted. Too bad I cannot find it in my country.
