    Oldman (me too! LOL):

    Love a discussion about Bourbon!!

    This topic is going to be about as opinionated as RFBR! After a few years of searching, I found my first bottle of Buffalo Trace, and have been there ever since.

    My wife and I made the trip to the distillery last winter, and it was amazing. The smell in the warehouses was indescribable (like hundreds of years worth of aging spirits, charred white oak and a whole lot of magic!).

    Occasionally (like once in a few months) in the great white north of Ohio, you will see Buffalo Trace in stores - just a bottle or two, and it never lasts more than a day. Other BT Distillery Bourbons ade equally amazing - I enjoy Weller (if you like a Wheated Bourbon, with a little more sweetness), or Blanton's - which is pure heaven again, if you can find it. Oh, and Eagle Rare and E.H. Taylor are also great, and from the same distillery.

    There are many great others, but those are my favorites.

    PS - Its hard to believe that this distillery has been there since two years BEFORE the signing of the Declaration of Independence!

    Great topic!!

    OK, I'm in....

    Let's check the calendars for a BR match as I would like to check that off the competition bucket list....worst case we'll have to wait until the 6400. You bring the bourbon and I'll dig deep into the "special" reserves in the walk-in humidor.....

    Preferences?

    Oh Good Lord! Everyone pray for these neophytes if that happens!

    I'm gunna call them the K & K duo, organize a heckling fan club, set up a gambling parlor, and then sell tickets for this extravaganza!

    They'd better bring a Hell of a lot of Bourbon and be prepared to share or they'll never survive this RFBR apocalypse!

    Old Crow....I'm a budget drinker. Tasted plenty of the high end stuff over the years and could never justify the price.

    Not much of a drinker here, although I do indulge in a good Vodka once in a great while " off topic I know" but I'm still wondering, why this thread is not in the General Discussion part of this forum.

    Harper had a great series of "how to make your rimfire rifle shoot better" going here.

    I use Old Crow for mixed drinks but not straight up or over ice. Try Evan Williams if you like a bargain Bourbon.

    Kev,

    Living here in Ky brings many a bourbon benefit. If you are looking for some value and a great smooth taste, try Jim Beam's double oaked/twice barreled. It was about 20 bucks, the label has a bluish tint to it. I was very much surprised by the taste given back in my youth I downed significant quantities of JB and diet coke! Mark

    I will Mark, great to hear from you!

    I hope you and yours are doing well - not sure about the upcoming baseball season (with the looming strike and all), we still need to do a Cleveland / Cubs game though!!

    Right now I am just finishing a bottle of Blanton's that Santa brought - but I will start looking for the JB you suggested!

    All the very best

    That would be Scotch, although in a pinch Boubon makes for a passable parts cleaner.

    Iíve gotten to the point I donít like to post but Timís lure hooked me!

    Scotch is great for people that like their whiskey from barrels that have already been used up giving their flavors to Bourbon.😀
