I could never make up my mind if I liked Chivas Regal or Haig Club best. Been years ago though.

I went to Toal WIne yesterday and asked one of the dudes at the tasting counter to pull out all the bourbons he had. He asked if I had a price limit. I said no. Not knowing which was the most expensive, or cheapest, I tasted several. The one I liked the best was only $30. Go figure.

I mostly just do Jack Daniels as it is tasty, universally recognized, and friendly on the old wallet.  I like the bite of the Tennessee stuff. Forty Creek makes a good one that's worth trying.  It's a Canadian, so more of a blended whiskey.  And if you are into really woody flavors, Lagavulin is nice.  It feels like you are drinking directly out of the barrel, which some will like and others won't.    Its more expensive than just a casual "grab a bottle to try it for kicks" but definitely worth considering, especially if you pair it up with a hearty cigar.    Oh, and I saw someone else has a bottle of Kraken.  That's always fun to bring out cause that bottle is just cool.  Rum that tastes good and has a cool bottle?  Easy purchase to keep in the cabinet.

Tasted this one tonight, and brought home a bottle.

It's my first 100 proof bourbon. The alcohol content hit me at first, but wasn't at all harsh. Nice and aromatic. Smooth. Nice hit of oak.
