You know, after revisiting this board and thread, I have to agree with you and "walk back" my earlier comment.

Although I prefer single malt Scotch, posting that in this thread was uncalled for. Also, I will drink just about anything that is wet, so far be it for me to crap on Buffalo Trace.

Mea culpa.

This might be of interest... in a nutshell, there's a mega-distillery that is producing most of the "craft" whiskeys out there.

This isn't news. Two places make most of the base booze, and neutral grain spirits out there.

One needs to be careful. I only will buy from places that don't use neutral grain spirits, even though it is more expensive.

Default Woodford Reserve

Woodford Reserve would be a good choice. It has great flavor, and is a very smooth bourbon.

I tried Buffalo Trace this week, and enjoyed it. It is one of the first bourbons that I have tasted that gave me a first impression of having a woodsy taste.

I also recently tried Woodford Reserve, and was very impressed with it. I can easily see drinking it on a regular basis, unfortunately I can't see affording it on a regular basis.

Default Happy National Bourbon day!! 6/14

Just in case you need another excuse to imbibe in this wonderful spirit, June 14th is national bourbon day. So raise your mint julep, old fashion or just a drams worth of America's own spirit creation, bourbon! Cheers!

Buffalo Trace is my go to budget bourbon. Great sauce from a great distillery. Although I have heard rumors of the stuff being on allocation in a lot of markets. And if you are ever in Northern Kentucky it is a great place to tour too.

Makers was my go-to for a long time but now my #1 is Templeton Rye. I'm up for tasting any new finds too.

Default Bourbon Tour

I'm heading for the Smoky Mountains this fall and starting with a flight into Louisville. I'd like to take a few days in the area and visit some distilleries. I'm thinking since I have a strong familiarity with Makers Mark and Jim Beam I'd start there.

Any suggestions on some good tours?

Woodford Reserve has an excellent tour. I did it a few years back, informative and offers a decent tasting.
