The more, the merrier, brother!

Always better drinking with company. When drinking alone, the company tends to be bad for you.  Look after yourself!

Although a firm believer in moderation in all things, we do enjoy a few brown spicy liquors on occasion.  This is last year's hospitality room on the first night of the week.  A good time to be had by all!

Hey guys, I've got a golf trip coming up to HH Island. Anyway, I am looking to get a pretty decent bourbon to take on the trip. Something in the $60-80 range, I know there's a ton of them. I know some. Basil-Hayden, Tin Cup, Four Roses. Are there any others that you guys enjoy. Looking for something good to sip on. I don't drink a lot, and with so many different varieties of Bourbon I wanted to get some “professional help” with choosing.

Thanks

Booker's is a nice Bourbon at that price range. It's high proof (127). 

 

Blanton's is a nice Bourbon in the same price range.

 

Knob Creek Special Reserve is bottled at 120 proof.

 

Wild Turkey Rare Breed. 112.8 proof.

 

There are more, but these are easy to find almost anywhere.

I went to the Frugal McDoogal here in the area, there are 4 rows of nothing but bourbon, it's so hard to choose

Can't go wrong with any suggestion S&B listed, though I'd lean toward the Wild Turkey Rare Breed myself. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Makers Mark although it's not real "exotic" or "sexy" since it is quite common, but it is super smooth and perfect for sipping neat. That's usually my go-to when I'm out and they don't have Wild Turkey.

Maker's is decent Bourbon, but it's a wheat Bourbon. I prefer the 46 over the standard Maker's.

 

Wheat Bourbons are sweeter than their Rye counterparts. I tend to like Rye Bourbons better, as I like the spicier kick. YMMV.

 

Another very good Bourbon in the higher price range is Elija Craig Barrel Proof. The standard EC is also a very good sipping Bourbon.... and has a wonderful nose!

 

Don't let price dictate what you buy or enjoy, there are plenty of lower priced Bourbons that are excellent sippers.

Sipping on whiskey is good when you are sittin and talkin, and just chillin. What types of mixed drinks do y'all prefer. mixing good bourbon with something kind of takes away from what's it is, and is pretty much a waste of good liquor. So what do y'all do for mixed drinks. My favorite mixed is a White Russian, many of them. Got hooked on them many years ago, So I don't drink them that often because it's hard to stop. Just curious as to yall's favorites for sitting around the campfire and having a drink.

Col. E H Taylor Single Barrel. It's good, not ridiculous $$, and a bit on the unique side. If you can find W L Weller 12, or Weller Antique those are also good under $100. If not Blantons all day, but even that is getting hard to find.

 

Outside of bourbon, anything that whistle pig sells is good.
