    After reading that bourbon thread I got to wondering what proof do you like your drink strength to be? The stuff I drink midnight moon moonshine is either 100 proof or 70 proof depending on which flavor I'm in the mood for and the type of day I've had.

    Apple juice or peach nector. I have a deathly allergy to alcohol.

    If I go over 80 proof, I can't remember what they can't forget!

    I drink liquor occasionally, I'd much prefer a good brew (or at least a cold one).

    I'd love to drink Tanqueray straight, but I just can't afford it. I'd love to be able to eschew from alcohol besides brown ales, but life's been tough the past couple years. C'est la vie, I guess, but it's the only medication that's worked.

    I like a nice cask strength malt whisky. Not sure in proof terms, but it's anywhere between 48 and 56% alcohol by volume.

    I'm a heathen.. I drink Bourbon and coke like most people drink beer.... 40-43 % off the shelf US made, usually.... best brand for the money on the day... :)

    I might take a straight slug out of a fresh bottle for a taste test.... though I never drink it in shot/sipping straight form at the table/bar.....

    is it a cold climate thing?... sipping straight spirits... I've never known any of my peers to sit around and sip Bourbons/Scotch ...;)

    I'm a beer guy typically, but I do like your list. I'd only need to add dirty martini's (Sky or Stoli 80 pr).

    I don't drink now, but when I did, the proof didn't matter as long as it was Jack Daniels. It is a crime to put anything in a glass of Jack Daniels, it for putting in you just like it is. I would still be hanging with Jack, I never got tired of old Jack, he just left me to handle the trouble all by myself one to many times, and necessity demanded I cut him loose.

    There seems to be some type of tax cut-off here as many sprits here are 37.5% alcohol by volume.

    We don't use the word "proof".

    I like Heaven Hill 100 proof. "Cheapest decent bourbon". Strong but has a good flavor mixed or straight. For the "ekers", a good choice.
