    I just finished my local bottle shops single barrel Buffalo Trace. I'm pretty sad because it was easily one of the best bourbons I've ever had. The owner also did a single barrel Eagle Rare, which was really good, and Four Roses, which I haven't bought yet

    My current bourbon selection:

    Larceny
    Old Weller 90 Proof
    Old Weller 107
    McKenna's 10 year bottled-in-bond

    The Larceny is a bit one-dimensional, but good for an everyday sipper...especially at the price. For a few dollars more, McKenna's is really nice. Really oak-y and not too overwhelming. The Old Weller 90 is pretty good, but it is eclipsed by the 107. Holy shit that is one of the best bourbons I've had in a looooong time. Now I know why people go nuts for it. I'm gonna nurse that bottle

    Weller is killer stuff.
    They say it's the poor mans Pappy

    I've been without bourbon for weeks. Just too damn poor to get any right now.

    Yeah that's what I heard about Weller too. Supposedly you can mix the 90 & 107 in a certain ratio to get a close approximation of Pappy

    Call me a plebe but I enjoy crown royal fairly often. Tastes better than most of the other more expensive whiskeys I've tried

    I picked up a bottle of Breckenridge Bourbon a few weeks back. Very good.

    So far, I think my favorite bourbons I've tried are Temperance and Blanton's.

    Didn't like Larceny much last time I tried it. Too much acetaldehyde (green apple) for my taste.

    Did a side by side tasting tonight: Ensign Red Canadian Whisky vs. Watkins Select Bourbon Whiskey. Watkins won hands down. Very tasty.

    Just polished off a vintage bottle of Green Label that me and my dad opened last year. He'd been holing on to it since '93. Probably the best bottle of blended scotch iv'e ever had.

    If you enjoy whisky, then you'll prolly like Cognac too.

    While im definitely a whisky guy, I can never turn down a pour of some good cognac or brandy, especially the former. Both are generally sweeter than whiskies. Some people swear than a good cognac will always be smoother than a good whisky/scotch, but im pretty sure those people havent tried top shelf whiskies/scotch. Oh and all cognac's are made from grapes.
