No prob. I'll just use a little less Hawaiian Punch to mix it with.

I'd be rolling in my grave if I gave a sh*t.  But my whiskey was still better than
any store bought kind.

There's a simple solution to the problem that MM is facing.  When you determine that you MUST water down your booze, you don't water it down with Water.  You water it down with other booze.

John Buck 41: jtown: John Buck 41: Earguy: I like Maker's Mark and it makes me want to buy a few bottles of existing stock to last me a couple years.

'A few' bottles will last you a couple years? I'm thinking our definitions of 'a few' are radically different.

However, other drinkers said the volume of the alcohol was not crucial to how enjoyable it is.

Lies. Why else would I be drinking something that tastes like sawdust if not for the alcohol content?

timujin: hubiestubert: I'm not a big fan of Maker's Mark, so this pretty much seals the deal for me and a continuing relationship with Woodford Reserve. What distillers I don't I don't buy from do is pretty much no damn business of mine, save that it only reinforces that I won't be buying from them.

Tried Eagle Rare? I like Woodford, but prefer Eagle Rare.

/really prefer Elijah Craig 18, but they won't have any more of that for another year...


Good bourbon is its own reward. There are fantastic small batch bourbons out there. Even Evan Williams does some great reserve small batches that are not just passable, but downright tasty. I can't say that I'm a huge fan of Scotch, but bourbon gives me warm fuzzies and even that sub-cockle region. I can't say a lot of Jack, even their small batch stuff, because their process gives the bourbon that distinctive, and to me, that vaguely petroleum aftertaste that I'm not much a fan of, but Woodford's standard fare is something that you can expect in most decent bars, and to deliver without fail. At home? I can afford to experiment and play around, and after my time in Colorado and the islands, I'm really having a great time with rums, but when I'm out and about, and want a decent bourbon, Woodford is widely available, and never fails.

Unless they have a marketing plan like New Coke...
