Holiday Booze

Unread postby motherscratcher » Wed Dec 04, 2013 8:15 pm

I've been drinking bourbon, but I'm far from a connoisseur. I've tried a Makers, Wild a Turkey Rare Breed, Woodford Reserve. What others should I give a shot to?

Also, my brother really likes tequila. Last year I got him a bottle of Don Julio '42. Any suggestions for something this year?

Wellers and Buffalo Trace are my favorite of the reasonably priced bourbons.

Buffalo Trace is good at about 30.00 a bottle, better than Jim Beam or the other common swill.
Makers is a good, but unoriginal choice.
Jefferson's Reserve is excellent.
Woodford Reserve is excellent also.
Elijah Craig is another winner.

I started drinking Bourbon more recently when I discovered that I could get some pretty damn good Bourbon for 30-40 a bottle which is about 1/2 to 1/3 what I pay per bottle of Scotch. I still prefer great Scotch (Lagavulin 16/Ardbeg Corryvreckan) to great Bourbon (Jefferson Reserve Select or Presidential), but I prefer good Bourbon (Buffalo Trace/Elijah Craig) to good Scotch (JW Black/Glenlivet 15).

These are the Scotch's I have open right now. I have a couple more in the cabinet, but I try not to have too many bottles open at once.
