My favorite bourbon is Woodford Reserve but it's pretty pricey. My secondaries are Buffalo Trace and Makers Mark which are a bit cheaper. I have had a couple bottles of Makers Mark 46 which is really nice too.

I'm a rum drinker myself but I will sip some good bourbon from time to time. A lot of experts do say adding a little water brings out more flavor. It does make sense that a high alcohol content could numb the taste buds. I'll have to try it but my taste buds may already be too numbed from sipping aged rum neat. The Makers Mark is pretty tasty.

Time to re-visit this topic after . gasp . 2 years ..

Here are a couple Canadian whiskys that may not be readily available stateside, but, I must say that they are very nice, indeed.

Their links:

Collingwood

Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye


I recently sampled them, and I recommend them to anyone who enjoys a nice rye whisky.

Rum. I'm a rum guy, while Kraken is my go to rum I'd prefer not to have any spiced rums. Give me the island rums, Barbancourt 15 (Haitian), Mount Gay (Barbados), Appleton Estate (Jamaica), etc., I have no idea where these islands are but I'm fairly sure they're south of Indiana. Currently drinking Pilar for medicinal purposes.

That being said I do like Jefferson's Ocean.
And I can also enjoy Balvenie Caribbean Cask Scotch. but that's it for my scotch tastes.

Forty Creek Canadian Whisky is my go too. I do like Collingwood
 
Alas I find Crown Royal about as good as Labatt's Blue. A skanky swill that is only redeemed by advertising.

I like Maker's Mark and Elijah Craig bourbon. I will try the Bulleit next time I buy a bottle.

Twenty years ago I had about 25 bottles of single malt Scotch at any one time. The Fiddich bottles are gifts...part of their new second cask line...one is called Rich Oak and the other is a marriage of Sherry, Bourbon and First Use Oak...worthy. The Ballantine 15 being another gift is an example of a good Scotch....as the the saying goes...."there is no bad Whisky, only good Whisky and better Whisky". My personal preference are big Scotchs..Lagavulin, Bowmore and Highland Park. The really big Macallans are now out of my price range....and the young stuff is not that tasty to me. The George Dickel 12 is the best Bourbon I have ever tried and at 30 bucks is the best valued Whisky I have ever had.....this stuff is better than some 100 dollar single malt Scotchs I have had.

What I've found over the past 5-6 years is that Canadian Whisky is going the same route that Scotch & Bourbon has done. Different distilling with different agings in different types of barrels. What I like is that the Canadian Whisky hasn't hit the crazy prices that some of the others have. A few years ago I got some 30 yr old Canadian Rye and paid about 50 bucks for a bottle. I would not have a hope in hell of getting a Scotch or Bourbon for that price.

What I find funny, is that in the US, Canadian whisky outsells Scotch, Bourbon, Irish, Gin... combined.

It was something I read a while ago Lawrence.  I was quite surprised to read that. I'll dig around to see if I can find the story.

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.
