Bourbon thread

Elijah Craig and EH Taylor are both very smooth, Buffalo Trace and Larceny have a bit more bite to them, but not bad. I prefer my bourbon pretty smooth. The Buffalo and Elijah can usually be purchased for under 30 bucks for a 750ml bottle, so those are right in my wheelhouse!! The Larceny is usually around 35, and the Taylor is typically 50-60, so I don't get to have those very much. All of them are in the 90-95 proof range, though Elijah does make a barrel proof version that is 132. It is pretty potent, and more expensive, but also pretty darn smooth for so high a proof.

 

I've never had Maker's, 792, or Eagle Rare, but I'd like to try them. Eagle Rare is made by Buffalo Trace, if I'm not mistaken. Oldest distillery in Kentucky, or so I'm told.

I do like my beer to. I love Blue Moon draft with a orange chunk. My home beer is either Bud Ice or Keystone ice. About 6%....harv

Same here. We've got a nice brew pub nearby and there's a ton of craft breweries around these days. Which makes for a silly amount of choice.

Yes. I didn't care much for it. Can't tell you why just didn't taste right to me. Also its made by by the Makers family. I understand there are three family's. One does Makers, one does Knob Creek and there is a third that I can't recall...harv
