Scotch - the next bottle of Scotch I buy will certainly be Teachers

My standby is Bombay Sapphire.
If you drink it on the rocks or in a martini stick with Sapphire. But if you drink gin and tonic try Booths.

Of all the gins I have tried, I have now settled on Citadel, a medium priced French Gin. It seem to me to be much cleaner tasting than some of the others. Citadel also makes a Vodka. I have not tried it.

I like Jim Beam. Beam Black is even better. The big bottle with a handle is on sale for $20 at Sav-Way today, I'll be there.

For those people I often suggest one of the bourbons that uses Wheat as it's secondary flavoring grain...Makers Mark would be an example. The Old Grand-Dad 114 is also very good. One tiny ice cube added will make it come alive! I don't recall it's price, but it is not what I would call a top shelf expensive bourbon....

Enjoy... in Moderation!!
Will look for and try it - but yikes 100 proof !

100 Proof is fairly common for bourbon...You might try adding just a few drops...Yes I said drops of water to a couple of ounces...Sip slowly...

Enjoy!
