Woodford reserve
Larceny is new on the shelves and nice
My favorite is Noah's Mill when I can find it
All served neat.
Currently working through a bottle of Woodford double oaked...My wife loves it but I feel the oak overpowers the butter and toffee flavors I love about Woodford.

I actually just started collecting / accumulating whiskies. I have all types but concentrate on Bourbon and Canadian Whiskey. My favorite by far is Gentleman Jack. To me it is much smoother then regular Jack. I both drink it neat and make whiskey cocktails. My drink of choice through college was Jack & Dr. Pepper. I always thought they complemented each other better then Jack & Coke. Most bartenders thought I was nuts until they tried it.
I also have been going into the new flavors. I do like the Jack Honey and the Crown Maple. The Jim Beam Red Stag (Cherry) is good but I think too sweet. I made a whiskey sour with it the other night and had to cut it in half water it was so sweet.
I have seen a lot of mentions of Buffalo Trace and will have to get a bottle.
@Lawrence - You can keep your Wild Turkey 101. That stuff is like turpentine. :crazy:

Wild Turkey 101 is like turpentine? Maybe I should give turpentine a try then.

Currently Knob Creek, but I love trying something new.

I have never tried Ezra Brooks... Gotta look out for that.

Cheers

Buffalo Trace is my favourite. Always neat...
I haven't tried many, mind you, but I could be content to stick with Buffalo Trace. Beautiful aromas - it's a pleasure to drink.

Anyone ever try Rebel Yell? I have fond memories of that stuff. It used to be sold only south of the Mason-Dixon line.
This is my everyday drink - smooth enough to drink neat, complex enough to make a good Manhattan, cheap enough to always have on hand. It's the best bargain in bourbon, IMO.
It's in most of our Virginia ABC stores, even here outside D.C.

Maker's is just not all it is cracked up to be. It is not terrible, but it is definitely not worth the price!

What I drink:

- Buffalo Trace > mixing

- Eagle Rare > neat / rocks

- Woodford Reserve > neat / rocks

- Knob Creek > rocks
