I have a couple unopened bottles of Booker's that I picked up for half off at a liquor store closing sale. It's by far my favorite bourbon, but nine times out of ten I end up reaching for a bottle of Ezra Brooks or Evan Williams when I'm making a drink, figuring I'm saving the good stuff for a special occasion.

Anderson's Pooper: TuteTibiImperes: liquor store closing sale

No clue. It was in FL as well, known to be populated with folks who aren't afraid of a drink. The owner also had a real estate business, I think he wanted to concentrate more on that. I made out like a bandit on the closing sale though - Booker's, Baker's, Laphroaig 10 year, Oban 14 year, Macallan Sherry Oak, and some assorted cheap mixer stuff.

I drink my bourbon and Scotch neat, with the exception of my cask strength The Macallan, which I occasionally dribble a little room temperature spring water into. Anything other than that is a waste of good whisk(e)y!

11) Because it's Bourbon and it's the Corn Mother's way of saying she still likes white folks. :D

One does not need a reason for an open bottle of bourbon other than "It's there". :D

(And to keep this relevant to the actual article, we DID do some bourbonated cooking this Thanksgiving--maple bourbon mashed sweet potatoes, which turned out VERY well. (One advisory, though--Wild Turkey FLAMES during the flambe process; rather glad I have a rule of "I will not put in food a liquor I will not willingly consume, but by God that doesn't mean I have to put in Booker's or Knob Creek Single Barrel". :D SO nearly lost their eyebrows :D)

/Yes, Wild Turkey 101 and Evan Williams are about the lowest bourbons I will willingly drink straight

As mentioned upthread:

www.beveragewarehouse.com

Uncut, unfiltered, bottled at cask strength, aged between 6 and 8 years before bottling. There's some variation bottle to bottle, and a sprinkle of water to open it up helps because the alcohol content is higher than average (121-127 proof). It's a big whiskey, so if you like big smoky, spicy, with a lot going on type liquors, it could be right up your alley.

Both of those are Jim Beam brands, produced and bottled by the company. So is Knob Creek.

Even if it comes from the same company, it has to use a different process and a different set of ingredients as it doesn't taste anything like the regular Jim Beam (which isn't to say JB is bad for a mass market whiskey).

I've tried the yellow label Jim Beam Rye a few times, and it's not bad. I need to pick up a bottle of one of the new small batch ryes that are popping up.

Excellent question. I have tried it myself. The short answer is yes, but not more than a tablespoon or so more. They won't hold their shape if you add too much. I always make a double batch, btw.

I should also point out that while my balls have bourbon in them, if you are going to eat them with the idea that you are going to get drunk off them you are in for a disappointment. You will be puking from the sugar long before you get buzzed. So if you want to get drunk use a glass and drink your bourbon. If you want a sweet, bourbon-infused delicacy, eat my balls.

Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye
4 mason jars of uncut moonshine

I don't mind Scotch if it isn't a mouthful of peat, so:
The Balvenie 12 year old DoubleWood
The Balvenie 17 year old DoubleWood
Dalwhinnie 15 year old

TuteTibiImperes: Uncut, unfiltered, bottled at cask strength, aged between 6 and 8 years before bottling. There's some variation bottle to bottle, and a sprinkle of water to open it up helps because the alcohol content is higher than average (121-127 proof). It's a big whiskey, so if you like big smoky, spicy, with a lot going on type liquors, it could be right up your alley.


Mine was 130.6 proof. Was. Need another bottle now. Really good. I will admit to making some old fashioneds with it though. Nothing like having a full blown cocktail where the total proof is still more than a typical shot.

It counts as it has Bourbon in it. Its considered a 'cordial' or 'Liqueur', just like the American Honey. 
I also have a couple of Scotches on hand: The Macallan - Cask strength, and a bottle of The Glenlivet Single Malt
I also have Rum: Captain Morgan Private Stock and a almost gone bottle of Captain Morgan Tattoo
And, to round out the 'Liqueurs' I have a bottle of Jamacan Rum Cream

I'll concede that, but I liken the American Honey stuff on par with that wretched Fireball cinnamon whiskey. Just..no. Haven't had the Bourbon cream. Any good?

Very good, but very hard to find. In the Chicagoland area it is ONLY sold by Binnys. No one else has it. None of the stores I have called or visited up in Wisconsin have even heard of it. Its a great dessert drink straight, or awesome in Coffee or Hot Chocolate.

As for the American Honey, that goes in my tea or is used as an adult cough medicine.

That's pretty much my use for bourbon-honey liqueurs--mix with some lemon juice or tea in event of a crud or drink straight as a (far more palatable) substitute for Ickytussin. :D

And if my state weren't so anal about shipping booze through the mail, I'd arrange a trade of bourbon cream for Choya umeshu (which is difficult-to-occasionally-impossible to get here, but damn if we don't have Buffalo Trace bourbon cream here :D). I personally like the stuff as a substitute for La Lechera in coffee (yes, if I have to be sober I use La Lechera, which is this Mexican sweetened-condensed-cream stuff that has the advantage of coming in a squirt bottle like honey).
