The Woodford Reserve is sensational. So woody, and burnt sugar, almost like a good brandy. Super.

The Bulliet Rye was actually better. I'm really getting into good American Rye's. I want to try some Whistler's Pig.

Really?? Wow! I've never tried it. Now I want to!

It's impossible to get the truly great American whiskies over here, there's a Sazerac 18 and a Hotaling's Old Portrero Single Malt, both are supposedly sensational.

One day........

Maybe you can get it shipped over the pond via online distributors? Binny's perhaps?

Yes....it's the carriage to Ireland that is the problem, it's a killer. Hopefully heading to NJ in the Autumn....that should sort me out!

If you are going to be in NJ for a definite period of time, and know the address ahead of time, you may wish to order a bottle of Templeton's Small Batch American Rye online on Binny's. The only place other than online you can get it is in a few liquor stores in Iowa and the Chicago market.

Good stuff!

I had some of this (finally!) at the bar at the Fairmont Mirimar in Santa Monica a couple of weeks ago. It was so good that I ordered a bottle online from Binny's and it's being shipped to the Pedro compound as we speak!

It's 100 proof and 100% american rye, baby!

Spent the hurricane last night with a bottle of Jameson's.  A hurricane is WAY more fun with a bunch of whiskey in you

The ideal partner for a hurricane.

Okay. It's been cold. I wanted to try whiskey again. Specifically bourbons. I went to my local liquor store and bought a bottle of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Wow. I actually liked it.

Rush Forum whiskey/whisky drinkers, help me out - what should I try next?

I'm hardly a liquor aficionado, but if you like a smooth bourbon, you should try Maker's Mark #46:

I know Knob Creek is popular, but it seems harsh by comparison, at least to me.

Tomorrow I'm going with either Elijah Craig or Maker's Mark. I really like the Buffalo Trace I had, so as of now, it's my benchmark.

Wish I could help you out, but I can't get into bourbon, much as I try. Strictly Scotch for me.

Maker's Mark for me.  It's expensive, but you gotta pay for quality.
