High West American Prairie - it's a local distillery, so not sure availability outside Utah (yes, Utah). I'm still learning, but compared to Jim Beam, no comparison. It's like comparing a $10 steak to a $50 one.
Just starting to get into Scotch, first bottle was Glenmorangie Original. Still getting used to it. It was the only one I could find with decent reviews for under $50.
I really like their double rye. It's great. I love rye tho, rye whiskey and rye vodka.
Bushmills is my go to Irish Whiskey. And Bushmills Black Bush when I can find it. Jameson is ok. Ole Smoky moonshine is good and around $23 a jar. It's probably the closest to real hooch and the best tasting commercial shines that I have tasted.
Saturday I found a new irish whiskey at my local market, new there anyways... Sexton. Man, it's only $1 more than Jaamo, but it's great, better than jaamo even. And I love Jameson.
Damn smooth whiskey
Thanks for a good recommendation.
We tried it. It's definitely smooth and aromatic, with caramel and vanilla overtones. Generally, I'm not a fan of flavored whiskies, and blending port wine with whiskey is a little strange. It's a worthy contender to highest aperitif/happy hour honors (We rated it 9 out of 10). It's not quite up to Remy-Martin VSOP (10/10) for special occasions, and like Remy-Martin, it's a little pricey for regular drinking. For our regular happy hours, we'll stick with our "utility bourbon"...Wild Turkey 101 (8/10).
Incidentally, we decided to try the BH Dark Rye out with some of those "freezable" stainless steel ice cubes to avoid dilution. Four of the cubes we selected make an even layer in our sippin' tumblers. They worked pretty well for the first drink, but not much cooling during the second. Next time, we're thinking of trying a combination of large ice cube for the first drink, with stainless cubes supplementing the second.
I almost bought that the other day, but then found Sexton. The port blending turned me away. I like rye, but don't need no wine in my whiskey.
On the frozen rock/stone cubes. I found they only work for one drink, I have an ice ball maker and that works better. One big ass ball works for 2 drinks normally with minimal waterdowning.
My son is home on leave wanted to have me try his current favorite, so he just brought this for me to try.
Quite good, I am definitely enjoying it.
That is good too.
I am drinking, about to grill. Been kinda absent for a while, 6 days at work and shit to do at home. Enjoying having today off.
