Normally I enjoy Canadian Whiskey but I have been trying out bourbon lately and I enjoy it. Right now Iam working on a bottle of Makers Mark. I also picked up a bottle of Eagle Rare 10 and its good.

Our liquor store here has a really good whiskey selection so tomorrow I may have to stop by and cruise around the bourbon section ( or the American Whiskey Section as they call it up here) and see what I find.

It's tough to find in my area, when I make it to Wyoming, I usually search out a few bottles, and with roughly a $20 price tag it is far from a "Bank Breaker". I have an unopened bottle in the cupboard that appears to be rather lonely....it shall be visited tonight.
BourbonEnthusiast.com • Bourbon Reviews • George Dickel No. 12
George Dickel is made 5 minutes from my house in the Cascade Hollows of Normandy Tenn. http://tnspiritsandwinetrail.com/George_Dickel_Distillery.html and Jack Daniel's is only 15 minutes away in Lynchburg Tenn.
One thing I can say about George Dickel.....very smooth! that would be my choice.

It is smooth isn't it?!
Since this thread was posted I've been forced to have a few fingers of Dickel no.12 in the name of research....preliminary results are that I may need to do some more research.

I'm generally a Bulleit man, but just bought a bottle of Buffalo Trace to find out for myself after reading this forum.

I love research.

yeah, bulliet is good but eagle rare is better.
another fine bourbon is makers mark.
however, when camping, a great sitting around the fire whiskey is good old beam

I checked out the Eagle Rare (10yr) recently on a whim at my brother in laws. Man! That is some good stuff. It's nudged Bulleit out of a top seat.

The Macallan 18yr is still my go to, although a recent sampling of 12yr is gainin fast.

Looking to try some Macallan Fine Oak here in a few days.

Soo...this is a bourbon thread. Does there need to be a whisky (whiskey) thread?
