Re: Bourbon Drinkers ?

I assume you're not into a higher proof if you are looking at the Maker's Mark and 1792 Small Batch? If not, then go for the 1792. If you do like a little more "heat" in your bourbon, I would highly recommend you go for the 1792 Full Proof.

Re: Bourbon Drinkers ?

If you like Makers Mark, you should try Weller special reserve. It's a 90 proof and smooth. Weller Antique has a little more kick at 107, but is still an easy drink.

I'm not a fan of the Special Reserve, but do like the Antique 107 and love the 12 year. I rarely see either where I'm at unfortunately, but buy whenever I do.

I like both the special reserve and 107 and they're both available most of the time around here. The 12 year on the other hand is almost impossible to find.

Open to suggestions.

Not a big fan of either, but gun to head...1792, it's tough to make suggestions with so many different areas having different selections available, also price point's a big factor too.

Re: Bourbon Drinkers ?

My go to bourbon is Basil Hayden these days. Definitely a lighter bourbon, very easy to drink neat. We tends to try different bourbon but always have a bottle of Basil in the cabinet. Not to get off topic, but we recently opened a bottle of Glenfiddich 18 that I had bought back in 1986 (year my son was born). Was still sealed in the original container. Hot and cold with scotch, but more than the actual liquor was the realization it had been distilled 50 years ago in the 60's.

Re: Bourbon Drinkers ?

I recently was given a bottle of Jefferson's "very small batch" as a gift and that is some outrageously good bourbon

I looked that up, reviews are good. Lighter bourbon which I tend to prefer these days. Thanks for the input.

If you guys wanna try a super smooth Jeffersons, look for this...twice the $$ as regular Jeffersons, but well worth it.
