    That was my Dad's cold remedy. A couple shots of that and he always felt better.

    Bourbon can be made outside of KY, for the record, but that's definitely not bourbon in the OP.

    The requirements for whisky to be called bourbon are it's made from at least 51% corn and aged in charred oak barrels. Where that occurs is irrelevant--technically.

    And I would agree with your disagreement. What brands some "experts" may like, I do not. But I know what I like!

    Iím one of those guys who just likes whiskey.

    And whisky, as well.

    Scotch, Irish, Canadian, bourbon...I do like them all...except Jack Daniels. I cannot abide it...nasty stuff to me.

    But, in bourbons? My go-to is Woodford Reserve or Buffalo Trace, neat. Booker's every now and then for a change, but Iíve found it needs a splash of water or a single ice cube to really open up.

    (And on thatóI donít care how people like to drink their whiskeysóthey like what they like, and thereís absolutely nothing wrong with having it on the rocks, or with a splash of water if thatís how it tastes good to you...youíre drinking it, not me)

    Scotch? Tallisker is one of my favorites, or Oban.

    Irish? Jameson or Midleton.

    Canadian? Crown Royal or Wisers, unless Iím having a 7&7 or whiskey&cola...then Seagrams will do fine.

    I ainít terribly picky.

    I mostly drink scotch but I do enjoy bourbon too. My preference is Evan Williams Single Barrel, good old Kentucky booze.

    @Sister - if you like SWEET try Southern Comfort. I think technically it isn't really a whiskey or a bourbon. But, made into The Kentucky Derby official drink, a mint julep, it is quite drinkable. You absolutely must have fresh mint to make one. No exceptions.

    I admit that never, even back in my serious drinking/party days, could I drink any kind of hard alcoholic beverage straight or on the rocks or even with a little water. I probably am not even worth getting flamed on this thread.

    For the right marriage of my taste to my wallet I'm drinking Jameson's (Irish) and laphroaig 10 (Scotch). I don't have enough bourbon experience to comment fairly other than to say I haven't found the right one yet.

    My fave bourbon is bottled in Scotland. Like OV, Iíd give away Johnny Walker Blue too. The Green Label is far superior and 1/4 the price. Yes for Balvenie and Caol Ila, Jura, and Nadurra, to name only a few of the really faves.

    When I was an active engineer, we had a vendor from Kentucky that made his own stump water. It kicked like a Missouri mule, so to speak.
