The whiskey and spirits thread.

It seems that several TGO'ers have a taste for glass of good whiskey. I thought it might be a good idea to share what we find.

TGO David recommended Jefferson Reserve VSB to me. I keep a bottle in the cabinet.

Today I picked up a bottle of Elmer T Lee single barrel.

90 proof, 14 years old. This one starts out with a big hit of apricot and finishes with vanilla and spice.

I've got a few new ones you guys need to try, but the one I want to recommend tonight is Prichard's Double Chocolate Bourbon using Prichard's bourbon and Olive & Sinclair chocolate. Absolutely amazing. My wife spotted it on the shelf at one of our local stores and suggested we pick it up. Good call. :)

One I got to enjoy recently and will keep in my cabinet, sweet and deep on the front with some wonderful rye spice on the finish. I could not find a picture of the XO wich was phenominal also.

If you can save up the cash, any of these are amazing...

I have the George T Stagg (My Favorite), the William Larue Weller, and the Thomas H Handy Sazerac. All between 125 and 145 proof, and roughly $80-95 per bottle.

I have enjoyed a couple of bottles of Eagle Rare, Waldron. Fantastic! Four Roses single barrel is a great bottle as well.

Anybody try Noah's Mill? It is apparently ranked quite high and several of my friends are big fans

Well I was visiting some family in Iowa and got exposed to some Templeton Rye. Apparently it is made in Iowa and was made during prohibition. They claim that it was Al Capone's drink of choice. Anyhow it was really good wiskey.

Yes, that is one of the others I was going to recommend you guys try but I was pacing myself with the recommendations. It's excellent. Worth the purchase.

That's an old favorite. Good in Irish coffee, and on the rocks too.

Here's a new one. I think this is aka Virginian Gentleman distillery. The talk is that its a Sazerac company. This one's a 7 year old. Oak and vanilla. Nice finish. A good sipper.

I'm not a whiskey guy so my tastes aren't as refined in that area as they are in beer. I'm trying to change that though. I've heard good things about Maker's 46 so it's on my list since I do drink Maker's Mark regularly.Angel's Envy has also been on there since I heard some pretty good things about it. I also just picked up a bottle of Jack Daniels Single Barrel from Midtown. I don't know if it's any different than the regular stuff but the bottle is a little cooler. I know, I know. That doesn't count for anything.

Do try the 46. You won't be disappointed.

I agree with the above (and not because I'm a makers ambassador) but I would also recommend you guys try Colorado whiskey before the new owners and master distiller change the taste. I have found it a couple of stores around Knoxville and for $50-$60 it is reasonable. a6890dfe-1aac-7fd8.jpg

I have tried it, I was unimpressed. Definitely not worth $50.

My usual these days is Four Roses Single Barrel. I got a bottle of 12yo Ezra Brooks Single Barrel a while back, that's good stuff too.

hey, slip me a snort of that Blue. I figured I better make an appearance since y'all were having a whole discussion about my finer points. :)

JW Blue is one of my favorites. Aside from scotch, I like most of the popular top shelf bourbons. Woodford Reserve is a usual. I grew up near Tullahoma, so George Dickel has a permanent place in my bar.

I'll have to try some of these others...

The Blue is fine and dandy alright, but you know, I think I like this Glenfiddich better. No kidding, I really like it! I guess that's the difference in single malt and a blended scotch.

Trying some Buffalo Trace and I think I like it. I'll know for sure once the pint is all gone.
