    I just recently bought a 2 pack, one each of Bulleit rye and bourbon. Both are pretty nice.

    I find the Bulleit to be a tad light for my taste. I still enjoy it, but my preference is for a deeper flavor if available.

    I have some Buffalo Trace been sittin' in a drawer for years - ever since I was dx'd with Hep C, which has been cured, thanks to advances in pharmaceuticals. Liver damage ain' no joke. Never was a real big drinker, but I do like the taste of bourbon. Reading about the brands you guys like makes me wish I could try 'em out, but that's not hapnin'. I find other ways to feed that demon that don't bother my liver, or what I have left of one. Miss beer also. Liked Grolsch.

    I'm sad for you, friend. Though I suppose that day will come for all of us eventually.

    Yeah, sorry to hear that musichal. But yer right, there's lots of other things to enjoy.
    Some of the euro brewers make a pretty good non-alcohlic beer. Becks or Heineken etc. A waittess accidentally served me a n/a beer once, and I was almost halfway thru it before I noticed.
    And All I usually buy are the nice crisp, flavorful euro beers. They've been making them for 3 or 400 years (probably not the n/a beers), and the pricing is great for a premium beer. Tho I do love a Guiness occasionally. They should make a n/a Guiness.

    Honestly, my idea of a replacement led me to purchase a vaporizer, if you get my drift-cloud. Beats combustion by a mile. Packs two.

    Don't be sad for us, we have survived and have so many other pleasurable possibilities for life's joys. Enjoy yours in our stead with our blessing.

    Damn, I ran out of Jim Beam Black, so I'm just sippin' some Forty Creek Copper Pot rye whisky at the moment.
    Still good ... a bit sweet ... but still good.
    Nice full flavor, and 43%. (86 proof).

    Lucked up and found some Weller special reserve. A wheat mash bill should be very mild. Can’t wait to try it.

    I am a wheat mash bill fan. I would like to try that, but have never seen it in my parts!

    Interesting thread and some good ones named. If you've never done it, you owe it to yourself to drink your favorite in a Glencairn Whisky Glass. I was surprised on how a glass could make such a difference.

    Woodford is delicious, One. But in rip-off Canada, it's 50 bucks a bottle, so I only pick it up for special occasions. My standard is Jim Beam Black at 32 bucks.
    By the way ... nice, festive, Xmas Avatar.
