Just bought a bottle last nice to try and going to crack it open tonight. Not expensive at $40, but not cheap. Anyone try it? Keeper or return before opening?
I like Knob Creek, Makers mark and Buffalo Trace as well. Just trying something different. I keep several different Whiskeys, Single Malt, Bourbon or Scotch on hand. Even the Irish stuff.My layman's opinion is that, at a given price point, there is an inverse relationship between how attention-grabbing a name is and the quality. Granted, there are exceptions -- Francis Ford Coppola's winery comes to mind -- but that's the rule I go by based on long, unfortunate experience.
BTW, if you want a good whiskey, try Knob Creek. Again, my opinion.
I always have a bottle of knob creek and a bottle of makers mark on hand. Those two seem to meet all my bourbon needs. I used to keep wild turkey and jim beam in the liquor cabinet. But not anymore. Makers mark for a light bourbon, knob creek for a strong burbon.I like Knob Creek, Makers mark and Buffalo Trace as well. Just trying something different.

I think Overholt and Rittenhouse are both the best low end ryes. I am not into whiskey. I do have a cool story about a famous chef offering big bucks for a fifth of Old Fitzgerald a friend found in their mother's house. Fitz was the prequel to Pappy Van Winklethe KC bourbon is ok...their rye is good, but my favorite is Rittenhouse.
for everyday whiskey, I usually buy 1792 Small Batch.
have gone thru a lot of ryes...Old Overholt is comparable to George Dickel (really inexpensive).I think Overholt and Rittenhouse are both the best low end ryes. I am not into whiskey.
Dewar's is whisky, not whiskey (Scottish spelling). It's a good blended Scotch, and by no means the cheapest. I've visited the distillery that makes the malt that is its main ingredient, Aberfeldy. Their single malt is quite good, to my taste. Not too easy to find.I haven't tried many whiskeys, but my cheap kind is Dewar's White Label.
