Yo.

I'm a big fan of Bourbon, but if I'm honest; I've probably only had several different variations. i.e. Jim Bean, Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels, Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniels Single Barrel, Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, Noah's Mill.

Can anyone suggest anything on top of that list?

Ta muchly.

+1 to Pappy Van Winkle, just check you go for the right version as some bottles retail for 200.00+

This is the bottle I have atm, very smooth:

Buffalo Trace and Noah's Mill (when you can find it) for me.... quite like Virginia Gentleman too and I'm not averse to a bottle of Maker's Mark.

To be honest, when you have either Gentleman Jack or Maker's Mark, isn't that all you need?

I like Buffalo Trace too, and also Wild Turkey.

The Elijah Craig 12yo is a top notch bourbon in my opinion and at a very good price as well....Bought it after watching Ralfy's review on youtube and I havent regreted it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUVCFNwPbiU

Also have a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle's 15yo and a George T Stagg 2010....but I'm keeping these for a special occasion, haven't tried any of them.

Always wanted to get into Bourbon, what is the best way to drink it? With water, ice etc?

Personally, it's either straight or with a little ice. Never water, why would you want to dilute it?

Those pretentious cocks who want to look like whisky drinking hard men, but in reality find it too hard on their delicate palate; Those slick, limp-dick pseudo-men who mix it with coke need to just stick to the adolescent alcopops. They may not get as much pussy, but they'll save a ton of money and enjoy their drink a little more!

Sorry for the crudeness. I'm currently watching Bill Hicks, he rubs off on me :cool:

Well that will certainly put the cat among the pigeons...

If you're young and not used to whisky I'd suggest some very light ginger ale if you can't face it straight. Otherwise, I like a cube of ice or two which allows the hit to be a bit more diluted. A lot of people will tell u many whiskys need watering down anyway, but I don't think Bourbon does - just the ice should do.

Like whiskey there is no one answer. Some will benefit from a little water, some won't.

Jd's is a little akin to Teachers, much better when you can't really taste it.

Being an afficianado has nothing to do with the size of you endowment (although mine is huge of course :41: ).

That'll be me then.... and Keith Richards..... oh and Lemmy... you can tell him your thoughts on the subject if you like. lol

A pal of mine used to play Keys for a now defunct rocky pretty boy band and they were rehearsing next door to Motorhead at John Henry's (a fairly top end rehearsal studio) My pal knows the motor head guitar tech and was invited in to have a quick listen... apart from the insane volume the most memorable thing for him was the 6 bottles of Jack sitting at the bottom of Lemmy's mic stand, one of them half finished...at 11am!

(I know it's technically not a bourbon but the story still stands. Also JD is much easier to put on a dressing room rider than Buffalo Trace/four roses/wildturkey, it takes less phone calls for them to establish what it actually is..... anyhow I'm only going to drown it in coke to take on stage... like the complete failure with the fairer sex that I am. lol)

I've ran into Lemmy more than a handful of times at the Roxy and Rainbow Room in LA, and when at a table at the Rainbow Room, there is always a table full of destruction in front of him and whoever he is with. Bottles of spirits everywhere, and always a table full of empty glasses, and definitely no ice in sight, let alone coke!

Also at Sonisphere this year, I really wanted somewhere to watch the F1 race on the Sunday, and was starting to fret that I would miss it, until I heard that Motorhead had the race on in their tour bus. So armed with a half bottle of jack as a bargaining tool, I climbed aboard the bus for a most debaucherous couple of hours of my life. Lemmy was only around for a few minutes, but I can assure you, it definitely isn't just Lemmy who drinks like a real man, most of their crew do also! I'm almost sure I remember 13 of us getting through 11 bottles of Jack, plus everything else that was strewn about the bus. Ouch!! I say 13 of us...12 of them did, whilst I just pretended to take more sips than I actually was.....because I will never be that much of a man!

As i normally drink my bourbon in the form of a old fashioned i cant really give a opinion on bourbons to drink straight except maybe george t stagg but that stuff is just expensive and not your every day tipple but what i can say is stuff like makers mark (mm 40 is great but pricey),wild turkey,knob creek are all very good so you cant really go wrong with them.

PS. IMO steer clear of JD every variation of it is just paint thinner.

Semi late ninja edit...I just remembered something from wild turkey that was very nice and quite different its called wild turkey american honey its pretty much a honey infused bourbon its quite nice makes a nice old fashioned too.

A friend bought me a bottle of Jim Beam Red Stag infused with black cherry for Christmas. I wasn't sure what to expect but it's actually really good. It's not a lot like regular bourbon though, more like a sweet liqueur.

Spoony
16-01-2012, 01:18 PM
That Red Stag stuff can be dangerous. It's really tasty and doesn't taste its strength so you just blast though it. Next thing you know you've done the best part of a bottle and you're a shambling wreck. Well I was.

Eagle Rare 10 and 17 are great (especially the 10 for the price). George T Stagg uncut is good if you like the high strength stuff. As an every day bourbon, particularly to go into Old Fashioneds, it's hard to beat Woodford Reserve.

21-01-2014, 06:05 PM
I really need to pick up a bottle of Woodforde's Reserve. I don't drink a lot of bourbon outside of Old Fashioneds but I good bourbon is a true delight. Buffalo Trace is a favourite of mine though I usually end up drinking Aldi's own (like most of their drinks its surprisingly good).

Buffalo Trace is one of the best bargains out there (although it sounds like the name of a barmaid down the local.) Woodforde's is often on sale at Asda for 22 and when it is it's an even bigger bargain!

Edit: sorry missed your post there ss88... But I have to say that I like Makers Mark too!

A total +1 on the Eagle Rare suggestion. Can't go wrong for the price. The Eagle Rare 17 release this year was a couple of months shy of 20 years in the barrel. There are 2 more I would like to add. Both are products of Buffalo Trace (as are many other suggestions on here). The first is called Elmer T Lee. It is a single barrel and the mash bill has more rye in it. Think Eagle Rare with more spiciness. The second is called W.L.Weller and it is a wheated bourbon. As far as I know it is the same mash bill as pappy for way less money.

Pappy van Winkle is amazing but impossible to get hold of. Need to try W.L. Weller if it's meant to be similar (I think I've tried the uncut stuff and recall it being awesome). Agree with you on the Elmer T Lee - the rye makes it nice and spicy, but not overpoweringly so. Eagle Rare 17 is almost syrupy and so unique in flavour - deep and rich, a real treat. It's difficult to get hold of in the UK, especially at a good price, but it's one on my list to buy as soon as possible. Finally, I'd also suggest Blanton's Special Reserve for a smooth and slightly sweet bourbon.

Absolutely agree with you on all counts. I have a 1/4 of a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle left, amazing stuff but I've had that drop for 3 years now due to the shop I bought it from being unable to source any more *cry*.

The Eagle Rare Single Barrel I grabbed last visit on the hunt for a Pappy replacement also hits the mark.

For a fuller Bourbon I like Elijah Craig, spicy xmas cake with a great finish.

You really have got my attention with W.L. Weller, it does sound very similar to Pappy. :cool:

I won't say that the W.L. Weller 12yr is going to be a direct replacement for Pappy. We have a hard time getting Pappy over here at MSRP as when it comes out it is quickly gone (there is a waiting list most places). A bottle of W.L. Weller can be had for $25 (here) give or take. It is about as close a flavor profile to Pappy as you are going to get. This is an excellent link as it has quite a few of the Buffalo Trace brands broken down by mash bill. http://bourbonr.com/blog/buffalo-trace-distillery-bourbon-mash-bills/

Both Pappy and W.L. Weller used to be produced at Stitzel-Weller hence the similar mash bill. The only Stitzel-Weller juice left from the original supply is the 23 yr. Everything else has been turned out at BT. There has been some noise that Diaego is going to start up production at S-W once again. We shall see.

Redneck land.....sort of depends on what part of the state you are in. I have never heard of the show before now. I had to look it up. It is set in Harlan. In the case of Harlan I don't even think redneck land would be an adequate nom de guerre in this situation. It is not the end of the earth...but I am pretty sure you can see it from there.

I Have not really looked through this thread, but one I would suggest other then the normal and high end stuff is this offering from George Dickel, price is cheap (here in Alberta is $37 CAD) but don't let the cost fool you the Bourbon is not cheap its great.

I know we buy it imported and therefore pay a premium because of that, but the George Dickel is 42 over here.
