I have done flights of Scotts whiskey more than I have of the others, but yes I have experienced the butter! Now give Rye a try...it's on the way back and very fine!

I have enjoyed this thread and agree with all the recommendations for high end liquor.

As a son of the South in general and of Tennessee in particular I enjoy sour mash whiskey as part of my heritage.

I can throw-in the Evan Williams brand as a good, every-day drink... meaning not to have everyday but not reserved for special occasions.

Side-by-side with Jack Daniels and Beam I believe it offers smoother, sweeter profile, and at a far lower price- thus providing great value.

My absolute favorite is Maker's Mark, every day is Early Times black label. Funny, though, the quality every once in a while will be strangely amazing - one bottle in particular had a vanilla note that was very pronounced! Haven't had one like that since.

Our "adopted" daughter drinks Jack & coke. I'm trying to teach her that she shouldn't drink bourbon that she has to cover up! "Try a little Maker's, sweetie!" Now she knows that Maker's is off limits to her - it's alcohol abuse to add anything but ice and a splash of "branch" to a fine bourbon.

When I first went away to college, my dad, Mr. White, sat me down and had a talk with me. A youthful wild hair does run in the family, and he knew I was gonna party.
He told me, "We Whites can drink all the beer we want, but we can't drink whisky." Of course it went in one ear and out the other.

I went off to school, and come the first big fraternity party, I found out what whisky can do to "us Whites".
I'd been drinking beer all afternoon and early evening, but when the band started playing, one of the guys started giving me shots of bourbon. I killed a whole pint, and really made a fool of myself. In addition to dancing myself into a frenzy to songs like "Gloria", I had to be walked around the parking lot, and then hung my head out the door of the car all the way back to the dorm. My fiancee was so disgusted, he left me there, and the guys that got me drunk had to take me back to the dorm.
I ended up being taken to the hospital, having a gawdawful hangover for 3 days, and having to face Dean Dickey, dean of women, old maid, and retired Baptist preacher the next morning. She didn't like my Yankee attitude, and put me on disciplinary probation.

That's the last time I drank Bourbin for many years. But I did develop a taste for Scotch...Chevas Regal, which I drank on the rocks. I won't bore you with details, but I found that Scotch made me crazy.

My dad was right.

Miss Habourwitch...

Just a couple of points for clarification purposes. Early Times that is sold in the U.S. Market is not a true Bourbon Whiskey..but rather a 20/80 percent whiskey that is aged 20% in USED barrels and 80 percent NEW barrels.
To be a Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey it must be aged in 100% New charred barrels. Early Times that is sold to overseas markets is a true Kentucky bourbon 100% aged in new barrels..Your label probably says Kentucky Whiskey..rather than Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. What does this have to do with you enjoying it...Absolutely NOTHING!! Also Jack Daniels is not a Kentucky Bourbon but a Tennessee Whiskey that is filtered prior to aging. Again it has nothing to do with you or anyone enjoying it.

Lastly, then I promise to shut up! For the best taste, use a distilled water as your "branch" water and ice. City (tap) water is often Chlorinated which can cause off taste at times. Sometimes here, in the shower it smells like I am in a swimming pool.

Oh! I do believe I used your Hot Buttered Rum recipe during Christmas! Was excellent!

Please enjoy!!!

Uncle Bob
