This keeps me from following in some of my ancestors footprints however. I got my share before I developed the affliction in my late 20's.

I am not a whiskey snob so this is just what tastes good to me. I do not drink whiskey on a regular basis either, a bottle usually lasts me a year.

Jim Beam Rye

Jack Daniels

I once bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker Red Label and it sucked! I tried to drink a little a few days later and it still sucked, so I found someone who likes it and asked him to try it and see if there was something wrong with it. He tried it and said it was good so he got a free bottle of Scotch and I know that I am not a Scotch drinker. It was recommended that I try a single malt Scotch sometime but I think I’ll pass.

Thanks for the tip Ed.A. I have been snookered on just about everything over the years. I think it best if I just start winding down. I never smoked(anything) and no hard drugs. I still can play respectable basketball for my age and the excesses of youth dont work now. Trying to live past my families preset death date, 60 years old. Just 11.5 to go!

Johnnie Walker Green Label is my all time favorite, I just wish it was a tad cheaper. A coworker can get it at Fort Dix for $40 a bottle which is a nice deal. I'm slowly making my way into Bourbons which are very tasty. I have a bottle of Hudson Baby Bourbon which is the first whiskey made in New York since Prohibition.

Good stuff :)

Tonight I'm finally going to crack open a bottle of Glenrothes Vintage 1975 that I received as a Christmas gift. The parents are coming over and my father is a big fan of scotch. I've been waiting to share a little of this with someone and tonight is the night.

Not much of a drinker but on the rare occasion I do it's always mezcal. I know it's not whiskey but it's about the only hard stuff that doesn't turn my beer muscles on. It just mellows me out, unless I put a big dent in the bottle. Whiskey always brought out the *censored* in me. I'm to old for that *censored* anymore.

Yeah! It's the ol rabbit from Mad River Canoe. An friend gave me a vintage Mad River white water canoe. It's beat up a little, but the body is indestructible and it's light as a feather.

Knob Creek mentioned earlier is good. But I prefer Woodford Reserve. Buffalo Trace or Benchmark is what I drink daily though. The new Benchmark isn't as good as the original, but it's quite good for cheap bourbon. I was given a bottle of Peychauds Bitters recently so I need to pick up some Rye, probably Sazerac Rye, for Sazerac Cocktails in the near future.

Does anyone else sweat whiskey? It's tradition down here to obtain a couple of recently emptied barrels and pour in 2 gallons of distilled water, bung them up, roll daily in the sun, never let them get rained on, and pour out about a gallon and a half of good sipping whiskey 6 weeks later. Barrels have gone sky high recently ($50+) but I still sweat a couple each year. This year I got 20 yr old Old Fitz barrels. Goodness gracious that's good sweat!
