At a price point I am comfortable with: Auchentoshan (triple distilled single malt Scotch whiskey).
I knew I liked you for some reason
I have been enjoying Buffalo Trace and Basil Hayden's as of late. Reasonably priced and good for sipping.
David Nicholson. a bit more money than Maker's, but less money than a lot. never had better at any price
Irish for me. I like Red Breast, and I can get it a my local Sam's club for $49.00. Hard to beat it. I little further up the ladder is Red Breast Cask Strength. It has some bite to it. My favorite around the house whiskey is Green Spot, about $65 to $70 in my area. I have a bottle of 18 year old Jameson in my pantry, waiting for the right occasion.
Anyone tried makers mark 46? That may be my next bourbon purchase.
yes. Smooth finish, a little more burn and slightly more intense woody notes, less vanilla. I’ve gone through 2 bottles maybe over the past few years. In the end I like the original better
Black Bushmills is great. Give Red Breast a try. Smooth as a baby's butt!
Maker's Mark is very good bourbon. For single-malt Scotch I'm partial to Dalwhinnie 15. Very smooth.
Almost grabbed the red breast today but decided on highland park!
Yes, I like it.
Conversely, I would not buy Bulleit for a mixer. Just don’t like it.
I’m more of a Scotch than Irish fan, but that Redbreast really is pretty good.
My “go to” is The Macallan 12 year old but I also like Highland Park and Springbank.
And while I’m not much on bourbon I recently received a bottle of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked that I enjoyed.
I like Canadian whiskys - Crown Royal or Canadian Club. Neat, but over chilled cubes.
A whiskey connoisseur took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. In the end, it is Maker's Mark. Like @getbent, I settled for Black Bushmills Irish Whiskey for a bit o' variety too.
Going to watch you two....talking about everything xrayted
I bought it by mistake and discovered it was nuttier, smoother and slightly sweeter than stock WFR. I also like Jefferson’s Ocean Aged Small Barrel and Sinatra Select for the same reason. On top is Blanton’s Single barrel-if you can find it. Haven’t tried BT yet but I still think there’s time.
Lower shelf I really like Jamison's.
Middle shelf I really like Larceny. On the rocks, nice and smooth, not too sweet. Very little hangover effect compared to many.
Upper shelf I really like McCallan 12 or longer. Smokier, Caol Ila.
Corn whiskey gives me bad heartburn! I can do many shots of tequila, but just a couple of sips of Jack and it's Tum's or Rolaids time. Sour mash is yucky!
Went to get a new bottle of Buffalo Trace and saw a bottle of Old Forester 1910. Love 1920, so I figured I'd give it a shot. It is fantastic! Sweet caramel with just enough bite. Well worth the $60 and will prob be my new daily drinker
