This was our panel for a bourbon tasting last Friday night.

What bourbons are you all drinking?

I drink Jameson Irish Whiskey.

I guess Jack Danial's would be my "bourbon" of choice.

Isn’t Jack Daniels more of a whiskey than a bourbon?

He is from Tennessee. He has got to hype the home brew. Everyone knows Bourbon is only made in the great state of Kentucky

On the shelf right now I have:
Maker’s Mark Cask Strength
Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style
Maker’s Mark 101
Willett Kentucky Straight
Elijah Craig Small Batch
Jeptha Creed
Maker’s Mark
Evan Willians Bottled-In-Bond 100 Proof
Woodford Reserve
Four Roses Single Barrel
Jefferson’s Ocean Aged At Sea
Heaven Hill Old Style Bourbon
Evan Willians 1783

The Willett is probably my favorite. But the Evan Willians Bottled-In-Bond and th Heaven Hill are both damn fine bourbons that cost under $15.

Actually now that I think about it I have probably drank more Makers Mark than Jack Danials.

Bourbon is just a type of whiskey that uses mostly corn and is aged in wooden barrels.

The water has alot to do with it too. The Kentucky River produces the best water for bourbon in the world because of the limestone it sits on from Jim Beam and Evan Williams to Pappy Van Winkle.

Gin or rum for me....vodka makes me ill. I keep the bourbon around....and have a double on the rocks now and again. If I'm having more than one beer, it's Yeungling Light....low cal, and about the same carbs as Mich Ultra with a lot more flavor. I do love me some Bombay Sapphire with diet tonic and a lime.....mmmmm.

I've been kicking around trying some Gin again. I drank it a bit years ago. I drink a beer now and more often than not it starts making me feel sick before I even finish the first one. I guess all the yeast, rye, barley, hops just spikes my sugar to quick ?

Regular pasta sky rockets me to. I've been a whole wheat pasta guy for some time now and to be honest.... I like it.

If your close to Dayton, Dayton gin is excellent. If that's too far, look for Plymouth navy strength.

Beer doesn't spike me too bad for some reason. I avoid all pasta like the plague, but when I do, it's whole wheat as well. My wife makes a KILLER zucchini lasagna. That satisfies my Italian cravings. I do Kroger Carbmaster yogurt, a fruit, and natural peanut butter for breakfast every morning but one, a salad for lunch, and whatever she makes for supper. So far, so good after 11 years of this shit....lol.

Thanks bro.....I have a little advantage. I worked at a liquor store here in town while finishing up college, and the same guy still owns the store. I get a little head's up when hard to find Bourbons come in. I've been meaning to try the Michter's, but never pulled the trigger. How was it? Also dig Booker's.

The michters was good.  That batch started kinda hot and stayed that way throughout.  The Harper's was the smoothest of the bunch.  Bookers is good stuff.

The other 2, IMHO started hot and finished.  The cooks was probably the closest to being finished.

Thanks.... I'm gonna try it, and look for the Harper's too.
