I agree with you on the rye. I've had the bottle for a while. I really like their bourbon. I tend to like the "sweeter" bourbons. The Willett is pretty good but extremely strong. I cut it with a touch of water. The Fremont Mischief is my favorite right now. So good! I had a chance to go to the distillery about a month ago and they also make some fantastic gin.



And I love my ice spheres

I just bought a bottle of Aberlour A'bunadh(pronounced a-boon-arh [damn Gaelic and it's anti-phonetic ways ] batch 41,truly an amazing scotch. It's cask strength at 59% abv and aged in oloroso sherry butts. Tastes of raisins and dried red fruits, etc.. It has no age statement on it but according to wikepedia it ranges from 5 to 25 year old whiskies.

Also from wikepedia:
Rumour has it that when the second pair of stills were put in 1975, a time capsule was discovered behind the name plate, containing an 1898 newspaper about the distillery fire wrapped around an 1898 bottle of Aberlour. The workmen who discovered the bottle polished off four-fifths of the bottle during their lunch break, but the remains of the bottle went off to the laboratories in Keith, and were analysed. A'bunadh is an attempt to recreate this single malt.

Nice little story but if your workers polished off 4/5th's of a bottle they probably woukd have downed the whole thing I think.

If you are a cigar aficionado this is suppose to pair very nicely with one too.

I think that's because if they put an age on the bottle, by law it has to be the age of the youngest whisky, which wouldn't look too good in this case.

Supposedly lemon lime soda is good for a hangover...if you believe scientists with too much time on their hands. Might be valuable info for you.

Sprite may be the best hangover remedy, scientists find - NY Daily News

I also tend to like sweeter bourbon. I usually drink Jack although its technically not a true bourbon. Friday night with jack on the rocks and a splash of Drambuie is good times...

Let's not throw "technically" around in an effort to blur the lines.

Jack is ABSOLUTELY not a true bourbon.

It's like saying, "I drive a Cadillac, and although it is technically not a true Japanese luxury car like Lexus..."

I cannot drink Jack for some reason. Jim Beam or Dickel is fine from time to time, so don't pull the snob card. I just don't like the taste.

I was recently introduced to the 12 year old Knappogue Castle - a very nice Irish Whiskey.
