    I like rum but I actually drink far more vodka than any other liquor -- it's cheap and mixes well with just about anything.

    I have never been much of a bourbon drinker, but a friend of mine was quite a fan, and had an impressive collection of bourbon. I usually passed on drinking any of it since I didn't feel worthy, but at one party he introduced a bottle that he lucked into at an estate sale in Mt. Washington -- it dated back to the prohibition era. The first time he opened the bottle, most of the cork literally disintegrated. That's how old it was! For historical purposes alone, I asked to have a shot, and let me tell you, I never knew bourbon could taste so good -- smooth and tasty. After that I occasionally would partake in some of his elite stuff, and now I'm becoming a fan.

    Definitely! The more the better!

    Only condition to you, PP or anyone else who stops by is that you have to have some GM. You will see why when you get there.

    And dont you dare try and order a GM with ice!

    Damn Houston,
    You can put away that much GM? When I was a DJ back in the day, the bartender where I played and I would drink maybe 4-5 three-finger shots of it and the next day my head would pound!!!

    I do love GM but treat it with respect. I can't make it to B-more this weekend but have a great time!

    I was being kind when I said Bulleit was a tad harsh. It is quite harsh, but like yourself, I do enjoy a bit of variety. By the way, Rebel Yell is pretty good too, but for some reason, its rare and pricey down here in the Deep South.

    Not sure why you avoid Maker's Mark. They aren't a mass-quantity distillery as their product is a handmade bourbon. I'm an ambassador of their bourbon and have my name on a barrel that is about to mature. They will sell me a couple bottles of "my" bourbon but I have to travel to Loretto KY to get it. Not sure I want to make that trek.

    You should revisit Maker's Mark. Cheers!

    I either drink cheap beer (Natty Boh) or expensive scotch.
    I'm kidding of course about the scotch always being expensive, though I no longer buy blends. I really like The Dalmore 12 or Glenlivet 12 for my more regular drinks. The Balvenie 17 year is the best bottle in my collection at the moment, and head and shoulders above the rest.

    Re: OT: What's your spirit?

    Over the years I've bought my wife a good selection of whiskey - mainly Scottish but some Irish . I can't drink the stuff but can take the odd Jim Beam at the end of an evening.

    One problem you get with a thread like this is that some people do not distinguish between spirits and liquers.
    (When not drinking red wine or beer)

    Spirits:
    Gin (with tonic ) Bombay Sapphire usually
    Rum (with coke) usually white.
    Jim Beam

    Liquers:
    Amaretto
    Manderin Napoleon (aka Imperiale)
    Scnapps
    Psian Ambon
    - all of there work well with Champagne as well

    In honor of our British friends, I regularly enjoy a pint (or two) of Bass Ale!

    UKRaven likes bourbon. Unfortunately FellsPointRaven normally forgets to buy it for him from duty free.

    My two spirits o' choice are Bombay Sapphire and Jack (with coke). I also partake in Grey Goose on the rocks and enjoy a good cognac after a nice dinner.

    I'm with you guys who are high on Woodford Reserve - I bought some for my dad on my last trip to the UK and we both enjoyed it immensely!

    If Houston and PP are going to be at Mike's tomorrow night I may try to swing by. I don't have a bottle of GM there, but I know a few people who do. We should make it an impromptu board social.
