So we have a thread already dedicated to beer and since a new hobby of mine has been whiskey/bourbon, let's get a thread going about that. Here's my current inventory. Anybody have any brands or bottles they can recommend? I've already got a list of my own going.

Those look great, you should get into that Makers mark.....I enjoy all the Jamesons.

Another good one is Red Breast.

This is a Private Select at $67 a bottle so I'm trying to enjoy it and not just guzzle it down. It's very good as it's made from different oak staves every time so each barrel is quite literally a new batch. I was able to sample it in store and that sold me on it. Very good stuff if you can come across it. Blanton's is still my favorite (and hardest to come by) but the Buffalo Trace is my favorite for a daily drink (and for any bottle $30 or under).

Tonight's festivities. I never smoke a cigar but for whatever reason, when I went to the liquor store yesterday, I was in the mood for one. So I decided to light one up tonight along with my new bottle of whiskey. Tasty! Gotta pass the time and keep my sanity some how.

Very nice ....all above.

Is the Cigar a Padron?
Very nice.

I smoke Cigars often when the nice weather comes along since I would nt smoke indoors.

With everything going on and this Virus being a Lung thing, I have not been indulging,

Here is a funny item my wife sent to my phone.

LMFAO

Thanks i12

Typically the first pour on Easter is the red wine my neighbor and I make from the Fall batch, Its kinda mild but sneaks up on ya.
Hood knows.

After a glass of wine, I will certainly have a Guinness stout or Harp after dinner with a cigar, then a snort of Jameson neat later in the evening.

What 2 weeks of quarantine looks like. Was finally able to try a Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. (Small Batch) and it was amazing! Hard to find but definitely in my top 3 now. Wolcott was good as well.

Well Sir, around 2PM , I had a small glass of red wine, followed by a small glass of white, both homemade.

Then before dinner a few pints of Coney Island Pilsner followed by a few Millers.

Then it was all food into the evening and never got that poke of Whiskey.

Maybe tonight or next weekend.

Attaboy DP. Way to spend a Sunday. Just sat by the pool with the wife, kids, and dogs drinking Heinekens and grilling for Easter. Spoke to the rest of the family, just wasn't the same.

Eagle Rare, by far- for the money, the best you can get. Had some store pick barrel bottles over the weekend. Great pours.

Eagle Rare is good but hard to find by me and personally, I think it's a tad overhyped. For me, my favorite daily sipper for under $30 would be Buffalo Trace and then Woolcott (keep in mind, I'm not including Blaton's, Colonel Taylor, etc. in to the daily sipper category as those bottles I stretch out due to their rarity in obtaining). But overall, my favorite is probably Blaton's, followed by Colonel Taylor (Small Batch is all I've tried so far unfortunately but loved my first taste of it!).

I used to drink hundred proof bourbon (JW Dant, Old Forester), but I quit--last time I had some was 50 years ago, at my brother in law's wedding. Today the only spirits I drink are Cognac, Armagnac and Calvados.

Last couple of week's score: the McKenna and Michter's I was disappointed in (particularly the McKenna because I know how hard it is to get and heard nothing but good things about it). The 1792 isn't a bad bottle for $25, something I can sip on daily. The Four Roses barrel strength was a barrel picked by a local bourbon society and was very good (my first introduction to Four Roses by the way). Then I tried the regular Four Roses (again, not bad for $20). The Old Taylor 6 was good but I'm a fan of the Colonel Taylor line. And today I'm trying Booker's for the first time after picking up my first bottle (Granny's Batch). Not bad, a tad overpriced. I'd try other Booker's but I hear they kind of hit and miss for some folks. Hard to come by so I had to grab it and see for myself.

I was just talking about this yesterday about Blanton's. Went to my spot today to see if they had any Colonel E.H. Taylor 18-year marriage as I've heard they're starting to get released and this was the only bottle they got and I snatched it. Makes 7 bottles I have now and I have letters B, L, N, T, O. Just missing letter A & another N. Once COVID-19 hit, I was walking in every week grabbing one until I finally figured I had enough (bad mistake). The next 2 or 3 weeks I passed on them and now for the last 6 weeks or so, I hadn't seen anymore until today!

Tried Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Small Batch for the first time a few months ago and it quickly shot up towards the top of my favorites list. Tried the Rye last week and it was good but I overpaid for it. Has a little more spice than I like. Picked up the Single Barrel today and liked it. Not as much as the Small Batch but better than the Rye. Have not been disappointed in a Colonel Taylor yet (and I even grabbed a few bottles of the Taylor 6 year and that's good too for the price).
