    Yep, I can agree, this is a great bottle. Have half a bottle lying around the house. Managed to get a great deal on it at our local the other week too, so might head back see if they have another.

      Very sweet and smooth and goes great with cigars. I would say the perfect intermediate Bourbon.
      I love the normal Four Roses. About ?18 in my nearest Asda and very easy drinking it straight. Polished off a whole bottle to myself at a party a couple of years back and woke up with a loaf of French bread and NO hangover.

        Are you sure it wasn't apple juice? It's very difficult to tell between the two when they're from Asda...

          Very sure! This was from that night. I'm the one (barely) standing in the black shirt.

            George T Stagg. I have the '09 and '10... and they are a cracking drink.

              I am a big Bourbon fan and to my taste, the ones I fall back on are Woodford Reserve and Bulleit. The latter being my absolute fave if you don't want to spend ?50 plus.


              The difference between an amateur and a professional, is that the amateur thinks he knows everything, while the professional knows he never will.

                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.

                    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.

                      Talking of bourbon reccommendations if they've not been mentioned already, you can't go far wrong with Elijah Craig or Evan Williams both pretty decent for sub ?30 bottles.

                        this is a 100% Rye Whiskey small batch and I am now going to have a little drop on al Capone

                            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.

                              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).

                                I'm not a fan of Buffalo Trace (or Makers Mark for that matter). Asda recently had Woodford Reserve at ?22 a bottle, which is a steal!
