    Booker's occupies its own spot in the pantheon of bourbons.

      Just tried this a couple of nights ago and it is fantastic. Balvenie is one of my favorites and i do enjoy rum so i figured it might be good but it was really really good

        Try Angel’s Envy Rye. Research it and make sure you get one from 2017. I have not tried the new batches, but rumor is they are Bacardi casks now. Not that it’ll be bad but I just can’t vouch for it until I try the new casks

            Not sure how they label their batches, but they do. The AE Rye is much easier to come by than it the past.

              I was in Durham, NC last week for work and found a nice local bourbon. It was called Seventeen Twelve. Really nice bourbon that was smooth going down. Only like $32 for a fifth.

              Go to Nashville, find some Peg Leg Porker, avoid @BNAG8R otherwise you’ll be saying hi to Jabber the other side.

                When it comes to liquor, I generally like drinking them over rocks or straight. My favorite bourbon so far is Angel's Envy. I like the port flavor right at the end. I also enjoy a good rum, and the best rum I've had is Ron Zacapa, specifically Zacapa Centenario XO. Some of the smoothest, easy drinking rum I've ever had.

                  Not an AE Bourbon fan at all, but I know some people love it, so I'll have to give it a shot again sometime.Their rye is something else though.

                    Agree. It's a great rye. Had it for the first time last October and immediately got a bottle.

                    I'm also a fan of Whistle Pig's 10 year. Not sure if you've had it but it's worth a go if you're into ryes.

                    Haven't tired any of the Whistle Pig stuff. I hear the sourced stuff is better than what they've been producing, but that's just hearsay at this point. I think the WP stuff is closer to 100% rye, and outside of Masterson's I've tended to go toward the high-corn ryes like Pikesville and Russell's. But I'll give it a shot when I get a chance.
