I fancy some Canadian club, especially the 12 year old. Jameson is good for mixing.

Straight Bourbon Whiskey or Jameson. Don't care for blended varieties

I've never tried the knob creek. I do enjoy an occasional shot of Jim Beam Black. I heard somewhere that Knob Creek is just Jim Beam but aged longer in the barrel. Is that true? Is it enough of an improvement to justify the price?

I'm very keen on most bourbons and Canadian blended scotches......

Unfortunately, if I have a bottle of whiskey in front of me I am going to get very drunk. I don't know when to stop. For this reason I only have the stuff when I visit my father in law. He has a great collection of bourbons and some terrific Kentucky moonshine that I get to try on rare occasions.

Forty Creek rocks. It makes Crown Royale cry the blues.

We recently had a thread about this: Scotch and Whiskey thread.

If I'm going to drink bourbon whiskey, it's usually the Woodford Reserve. I could drink that stuff all day And you get to be part owner in a racehorse!

The Caol Ila mentioned below is a great whisky. It's very mellow and drinkable. When I'm in the mood for something with some real character I'll reach for the Laprhoaig Quarter Cask or Talisker Distiller's Reserve. Om nom nom peat!

I think it is. It has a lot more subtle flavors than Beam; like cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. The Knob is my go to whiskey. Buffalo trace is good also, but not as complex.

I was a little disappointed with knob creek. It's a good step up from beam, but I had heard a lot of hype before buying it and was just expecting something better...
Evan Williams Single Barrel is a great bourbon for the price, and is one of my favorites.

I love a highball of Jack Daniels single barrel on ice.

Jack Daniels reminds me of my dad. He used to always have some black label in coke sitting around his chair. It was the first alcohol I ever tasted. Sometimes he'd "wet" the ice of my coke glass with some when I was very young. To this day, that charcoal scent of JD makes me think of him.
