I'm a rum guy myself...as weird as it sounds, either Rum or Gin..and yes I'm a Captain Morgan junkie...Cannonblast is my favorite....other than that, I'll hang with craft beers mostly.

Very nice! Never had the George Dickel, I'll be looking for it. I usually drink Makers 46. Basil Hayden Bourbon is a good one also.

Dickel white label is my favorite.
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.

Bourbon, Whiskey, and Scotch
« Reply #47 on: February 07, 2017, 07:14:43 PM »
Scotch and Irish whiskey are my favs.

I began drinking it when I wanted to drink less but better.

Spey, high, low or Islay. ALLLL GOOD!  But the ones I prefer are:
-Lagavulin (Islay scotch)
-Glenfiddich 12 (Speyside/highland scotch)

I had a distillers edition of Lagavulin 12 yo and that thing had a bite.  As all Islay scotches, it had a great peat flavor. Smokey almost like smoked meat, sausage, bacon lol

As far as Irish, my fav is Jameson Black barrel.  Sweeter notes, almost banana

I only drink my Whiskeys neat.  Sip and chew sip and chew. Lol

They pair great with my maduro, Cameroon or Sumatra cigars. 

Had my first bourbon on a flight to Vegas this past weekend.  It was Buffalo Trace Kentucky Bourbon.  It was surprisingly good.

I received a bottle of Laphroaig 10 Year Old Islay Scots Whisky for Christmas.  My brother and I enjoy it periodically, but not an everyday drink for us.

Correct once these things become "everyday" or "like water" they lose their aura and importance.  When this occurs, it's time to put it down at that point and pick it up down the line and less often.

If anyone wants to continue drinking daily or more...then stick to beer.  But your physique will suffer (belly). 

No matter what u drink, IPAs, stouts or porters....scotch beats any beer

My 2 cents

I'm pretty sure that right now, bourbon alone outsells Canadian whisky here in the US, and that wouldn't even count other players in the US whisky market like Jack Daniel's, a Tennessee whisky.

On the lower end, Buffalo Trace, McHenna Bourbon Whisky Sour Mash, Redemption Rye. On towards more expensive, Glenlivet 12 and Macallan's 12.

I wasn't a big fan of the Booker's I tried, and I am most definitely not a Lagavulin 16 guy.

But if you ask me for a "sweet spot" that stays relatively affordable while still being leagues nicer and smoother than anything in the $20-$30 price range, I'd step up to anything by Michter's.

And it none of that is available I won't turn down some Jack.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch
