    @Doublejack - I've been making that country $#@! for the whipmistress. Just mixing smaller doses by the glass.

    She's been drinking them. All weekend.

    And I'm experimenting. Evan Williams seems to be my favorite. I'm not going to drop a lot of coin on any of it so the really "high end" stuff is off my list. Evan Williams is good IMO and it's not that expensive, and is the only one in a glass bottle that I've tried so far.

    Picked up a fifth of Old Crow recently. Had it decades ago and didn't remember if it was any good or not. Old Sock, it's musty, not as bourbon flavorful as others. It's ok, wouldn't buy it again unless it was really on sale cheap.

    Early Times is a bourbon the old Serbs out here like to drink. It's ok too I guess, cheap.

    Jack Daniels is good, a bit harsh of a flavor but pricey. It's hard to pay that premium for a label but it's ok.

    Makers Mark is one I remember being good but haven't re-sampled it.
    I remember being dragged along to an event where the hole in the wall bar for miles only served Kessler. Well close enough to Jack for one night.
    I have vitiligo.

    Slander is not funny.

    I personally don't drink. Never really enjoyed it. Plus having a chat and active brain send to improve my quality of life.

    I'm a Scotch man - occasionally vodka

    Favorites are the single malt variety like Glenfiddy but that's too pricey.

    So i go with either Speyburn 10 year old or Monkey Shoulder - the Monkey is technically a blended but very smooth and warms ya up on a cold winter night.

    On the vodka - I just switched from Tito's (quite good - Texas made) to Vox (Canadian). The Vox is smooth as a greased slipper for same price.

    Beer? I like it when i'm mega-thirsty but can only drink one or two before i start feeling bloated.

    I don't know if they have it where you are, but Ancient Age (not Ancient Ancient Age) is pretty good for a cheaper bourbon. I tend to go with whatever's the cheapest and just mix it, but do like to have some bourbon straight up occasionally. Maker's Mark is pretty much made to be mixed, but it's much higher priced than what I usually get.

    A doctor once told me to drink clear spirits as the tannin released into brown spirits is highly cancerous. Check into Vodka. It mixes well with almost anything. Please stay away from diet soda grapefruit mixers. Try San Peligrino sodas. Blood Orange, Orange and the like. Real sugar and made by Guidos in Italy. Real tonic water is a cheap substitute and will protect you from malaria.
    I can't do vodka. It swings me back into my deep depression days, probably because I drank so much of it back then.

    It works different on different people. I'm much more of an $#@! on vodka. Bourbon doesn't change my personality other than to make me happier and more outgoing.

    So, Cap, if you have questions about any bourbons, I can probably answer them.

    I watched two local street people die close together(time) They both drank that skol vodka. That crap is paint thinner or floor stripper!
