    Poll: Best Sipping Whisky on the Rocks or with a splash

    Ok. pick your category and no Whiskey and Coke folks please If you gotta mix it with Coke or 7UP, you need to check your man hood at the door

    Three categories to respond to:

    Bourbon:
    I don't like Bourbon. But given a choice,,, Jack Daniel's please

    Scotch:
    Don't care for Scotch, again given a choice,,,who cares it is alcohol,,better yet pass me a beer

    Irish:
    Now we are starting to talk.
    1. Jamison's
    2. Old Bushmill's
    3. And If I feel rich at the moment of purchase,,,Tulamore Dew

    Canadian Whiskey:
    Ah yes now we get down to it. The spirit that made Al Capone millions during Prohibition.

    1. Canadian Club 6 Year old....best whiskey for the buck
    2. Seagram's VO about $2 bucks more that CC,,,and about the same quality. Stick with CC 6
    3. Canadian Club 12 Year Old Reserve....as good as Crown Royal at 3/4 the price.
    4. Canadian Hunter...best 2-3 year blend
    4. Black Velvet Reserve 8 Year Old,,,just tried my first bottle and it ain't bad guys and cheaper and aged longer than CC6.

    George Dickel Old #12 for me.

    PS: I don't understand people that would ruin good Whiskey by poring Coke ect. in it. If that's what your going to do any rock gut will work.

    Sorry...but there is ONLY ONE that fits the bill...Makers Mark!!! It is NOT made in quantity liked Jack, Jim Beam, Seagrems, etc. It's made in small batches while still keeping the price reasonable. I've been through their distillary and it's remarkable how small it is compared to the other "mass marketed" whiskeys. It tastes great, and it's one of the FEW bourbons I can drink straight without "gagging". Good stuff!!!

    I would have said Jack Black but that was never sipped from where I come from. I liked the dirty bird 101 too (Wild Turkey 101).

    Now, I can honestly say, I'm rarely caught on the beach without a bottle of Jack Daniels with me.

    But if I'm at home and I want something really nice, with just a splash of water on it to open the flavor, you can't beat Woodford Reserve - Distillers Select

    Don't look for any other bourbon once you have found this one, because this may be the best.

    Mixing pollutants with Crown is a sin.

    Nope, I'm an island boy from Hilo Hawaii and ended up in the armpit of the world called Nazi Jersey. Spent some time down south and I feel like I belong some where down there. I don't conform to what society says I should be. I'm more of a Rebel than a redneck.

    If it ain't 80 proof or better it's a waste of my time.

    I haven't sipped in awhile, but I used to like Maker's Mark and Canadian Hunter. Jamisons is good, too, imo. Sprts is correct about the Maker's Mark distillery. I took the tour there once.

    BTW: total tangent here, but fishing related - if you're ever near the Jim Beam distillery right outside Frankfort, KY, take yer fishin' pole. There are two Elkhorn Creeks - one North Elkhorn and one South Elkhorn - I think the one there at the JB distillery is North - anyway, when I lived up there several years ago we used to catch some pretty nice smallmouth in there right down from the distillery (wading) on live crawdads and 4-inch blue worms.

    Why thank you Fireline. I am truly honored. I must say that when I fly my Second Confederate Congress battle flag in my yard it will mean that much more.
