    Booker's with a splash of water is my favorite. Knob Creek is next in line.

    Just run everything threw a spell checker.

  6. Default Buffalo Trace

    You gents that mentioned Buffalo Trace, how much have you been through? It's available here but wasn't initially.

    I found it to always be good whiskey but thought it was kind of inconsistent from bottle to bottle. A couple of bottles were noticeably spicier than others.

    Agreed it has always proven good. And after more thought, something I neglected to consider, since the brand was originally only available in Kentucky, some of the bottles I went through earlier were part of the barrel purchase program not necessarily representative of shelf product.

    As much as I enjoy George T. Stagg and other uncut/barrel strength whiskies, Booker's is one that'll drink but haven't really learned to love. It's also one of a few that I feel begs at least a splash of water as you suggest for me own personal taste.

    A little water cuts the alcohol bite a bit and allows the flavors to be tasted.

    Hey Che'...Tell us a bit more about yourself. Seems like I remember you from the past.

    I agree. I've found Booker's to be pretty aggressive. If given a choice in the family, I prefer Bakers followed by Knob. But as said, I won't turn down Noe's namesake.

    Same ole' guy. Did lose track of the site though after a computer crash several years ago. We're talkin' back when the board still had the old school appearance. I admit, the newer look threw me off.

    1) Woodford Reserve
    2) Knob Creek
    3) Maker's Mark

    I haven't seen the Buffalo Trace yet but I'm going to have to look for it. I actually love Bourbon and always have a bottle stashed away in the house in case my bottle in the freezer runs out!

    Nice lists!

    Woodford Reserve, Lord knows I tried! I just don't have a lot of luck with that one. It's always highly rated with great sales. I've had 1 excellent bottle and thereafter, I've never been able to match that first experience.


    Others report that they get bottle after bottle of excellent returns.

    Keep em' coming.

    Che - we hardly know you... In the 5 years or so you've been around, I don't believe we've ever been graced with a formal introduction. Care to share?
