Markers Mark is no where near Buffalo Trace products in taste.

Well, there's some o' that stuff that can make a feller shake like a wet dog returnin' to the blind, that's for shur[Remington spellin'?];-)

Have found some of the pricier bourbons to be over-rated.. to my way of tasting anyway.

Inexpensive good tastin' day in & out bourbon is William Evans black label.

I'm right fond of Old Forrester & soda [that would be seltzer in some places or club soda in others, just so ya don't get confused] when an ice cold restorative is needed at the end of a hot summer's day. Weller can be subbed as can Dickel black label, but it ain't the same taste and there's dif.'s between those two. I like & enjoy both of them. Weller & soda more so than Dickel, but Dickel makes better juleps and Old Fashions, IMHO. Just saying.

Another inexpensive whiskey I sometimes enjoy for its taste is Triple Crown; a N. American blended whiskey from Weston, MO. I think of it as a pretty well kept secret. Goes for roughly $27/1.75L in my neck of the woods, sometimes slightly less! Good over ice; add a tiny splork of water, if you wish. 80% neutral grain spirits [Wodka, if you prefer] & 20% bourbon whiskey; 2yrs old according to the label. Don't sound like much when stated that way, but I've found it to be a good stand alone libation. Tastes vary, much as opinions about guns and dogs do. I'd not wish it any other way.

Merry Christmas, y'all!

I'll have to let my bass-ackwards entry stand & acknowledge Mr. Bill Ferguson's polite ref toit:-)

That makes perfect sense considering the dearth of Weller lately.

The last of the stocks from Stitzel Weller were used up a number of years ago and the 'boom' especially for Pappy was unforseen.

Does this mean a drop in quality for Pappy?

No. It is the very same stuff as Weller is batched from, and they just have to let it grow up a little longer.

Remember that age statements are minimums. If a rick of wheat whiskey is stored in a rickhouse where it's underperforming (they taste the stuff on a regular basis while it's maturing) they can always let it age longer or even move it.

Pappy will be the same regardless of vintage and if they have more to sell, perhaps the price will eventually return from the stratosphere.

Only whiskey that you can be sure of what you get...is whiskey that's from a bonded warehouse.

That sounds kinda deceptive in a way... kinda like paying a gunsmith to do some work on your gun, and later finding out he farms out much of the work.

David Williamson mentioned Bardstown Distillery, and Old Bardstown is another bourbon that gives a lot of bang for your buck. It is a very good choice when the only person you are trying to impress is yourself.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Woodford Reserve is what American friends bring to me.

Interesting how many members are drinking Irish whiskEy.

Scotch is whisky.

When reading in my man cave/gun room, my drink of preference is a gin tonic. Call me a light weight, but after the hunt, we toast the birds with cinnamon or blackberry flavored "Bird Dog" whiskey.

You have one buddy. I probably know dozens of people who work at Buffalo Trace. And another that work at Woodford Reserve. Not to mention one of my best friends(whos a purchaser) work for Evan Williams in Bardstown.
