    I'm a vodka & diet tonic w/lemon girl myself. Hubby is all about Jack, preferably Gentleman Jack, heck that's so smooth I can even sip it on the rocks...

    Hmmm thanks Rhino... I am, much to my dismay...a big bourbon fan ;{)
     
  3. Jim Beam was the first thing I ever got drunk on. I was 15, don't tell anyone. I go to the Indy 500 every year and root for whoever is driving the black Jim Beam car. Enough said.[​IMG]

  7. No problem Richtee. I'm a HUGE bourbon fan as well and that site has not helped. The amount of knowledge on that forum always amazes me. There are even a few insiders (ie. distillery workers and owners) that contribute on a regular basis. Be careful though, between here and there you could end up like me and never get anything done.

  10. Hey guys
    about the bourbon.I am happy to say I am born and raised right here in the heart of bourbon country. I am in lexington,Bourbon county is apx. 10 miles from me and the real heart of it all "Bardstown" is maybe an hour from here. That is where almost all of your genuine Kentucky bourbon is made.As for a preference yes for the money good old jim beam is pretty tough but for a treat makers and woodford reserve cant be beat,like everything else there are plenty of "designer" or small batch single barrel bourbons out there and they are excellent! However being a bbq guy at heart I say buy the jim beam spend the change on something to put in that smoker!
    Best wishes to everyone and keep on smoking!

    Jim is truly one of my all time favorites for the money.Jack,George,Makers Mark are very good.Heres a pic of one of the best.This is not water and it aint for the faint of heart.I traded a gallon of my homemade wine for this,good trade Id reckon.

  15. I shouldn't have read this, now I'm thirsty for Maker's. I used to LOVE Jack Daniels. I got into some Jameson Irish Whisky one night, then that lead to a bottle of Maker's another night. Now it's all about Maker's with a splash of Coke (never Pepsi) and a handful of ice.

    Knob creek 100 best ever . They have a new 120  proof  smooth as 80 proof kinda spendy but well worth it.If I'm broke bellows KY bourbon $15 out the door for 1/2 gallon.Its a sad day that SAM Adams is only major beer co. that has us backers.Bush,Coors,Miller should be ashamed .So should our government for letting the USA being bought out piece meal.RUSSIAN OWN URANIUM MINES IN USA.

    Beer is my standard, but the wife's vino is good when I run out of beer.  And some Jameson or Bushmills are one of my favorites this time of year. [​IMG]But any chance to get some Paddy's Irish Wiskey is nice anytime of year.

    if I am sippin it is either Buffalo Trace or Bookers

    If it is just mixed with ginger ale Jim Black can not be beat for the price in my opinion.

    When it comes to good sippen whiskey, it has to be George Dickel (Tan Label). A little pricey but pure quality and always on the rocks.
