I enjoy the Canadian Mist of KD with water if i'm trying to get all drunk.

Pendleton is good.  Has anyone got one of those gun shaped bottles of tequila from Sams?  Looks sweet but very difficult to pour.

On the Bourbon tip, Woodford Reserve for sure.  Four Roses is also quite nice.

Daily- Maker's Mark, neat, room temp
      - Jameson, 2-3 rocks

Feeling Rich- Woodford Reserve, or Basil Hayden's, just tried it and was really surprised, it's lighter than most, but really complex

Love scotch. 
  Blend: Usually Dewar's, but JW Red is good too
  Single Malts: McCallan, Glenlivet, Glenmorangie are the ones I've had the most of and enjoy a lot.  Dalmore Gran Reserva is very good.  Cardhu is one that many people don't seem to know about but I think is also enjoyable. 

Not very particular about bourbons...enjoy Woodford, Four Roses and 1792 a lot though

Good: Woodford Reserve
Cheap: Maker's Mark

unfortunately it's all expensive over here anyway

Got to tour the woodford reserve last month, first time i have had their whiskey and it is pretty damn good.
I've done a Scotch distillery tour and it was pretty cool but i don't like Scotch. I like the smooth flavor of Bourbons better.

This stuff was only available in Iowa until recently.  It is now available in KC.  Boom!

Templeton Rye

When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye.

Based on its extremely smooth finish, the American rye whiskey earned the nickname of “The Good Stuff” and quickly brought a certain degree of fame to the doorsteps of Templeton (pop. 350). As the premium brand of the era, Templeton Rye fetched an impressive $5.50 per gallon – or approximately $70 by today’s standards.

Over the course of its storied history, Templeton Rye became Al Capone’s whiskey of choice, quickly finding its way to the center of his bootlegging empire. Hundreds of kegs per month were supplied to Capone’s gang who in turn filled the demand of speakeasies throughout Chicago, New York and as far west as San Francisco.

Capone was eventually convicted on charges of tax evasion and sent to prison. Later legends suggest that a few bottles even found their way inside the walls of Alcatraz to the cell of prisoner AZ-85.

Although most American whiskeys ceased production after prohibition ended, Templeton Rye continued to be produced illegally in small quantities for loyal patrons. More than eighty-five years later, the infamous small batch rye whiskey finally returned – made available legally for the first time ever in 2006.

Vodka drinkers are tougher than whiskey drinkers, despite popular opinion to the contrary.

My uncle got a bottle of Balvenie 15 yr from someone (work?) as a Christmas gift. He doesn't care for scotch. So me and 2 of my cousins finished the bottle on Christmas Eve.

Apple is v good, peach not so much.  Blackberry is straight nasty, too syrupy.  Their Silver Tree vodka is fantastic, probably the smoothest I've had.  Their gin is okay.

It was fantastic.  Had what I can only really describe as a "nice burn," where its certainly present but it's not long lasting or overwhelming whatsoever.  Maybe the best part about it is that even while the burn is short, the flavors last on your palate for a lingering finish.  Extremely easy to drink, yet complex and satisfying. 

Obviously it's a "special occasion" whiskey but it undoubtedly delivers what you would expect from a scotch of that caliber and price tag.

Yeah, I didn't care for the gin. Apple is definitely the most popular. Their absinthe.... :fatty:
