Anyone have any favorites?October 31, 2010 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #706963WolfishMusingsParticipant
I don’t drink hard alcohol, including Bourbon.

Don’t worry, The Wolf, you haven’t missed much. It’s kind of interesting the first time, but doesn’t have much to recommend it subsequently.October 31, 2010 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm #706965WolfishMusingsParticipant

Believe me, I have no intention of *ever* getting drunk in my life. I’m not worried about any “buzz” I might have missed.

Blantons and George Stagg!October 31, 2010 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #706967oomisParticipant
I have never been drunk, but when I have arba kosos on pesach, I am usually VERY happy. I never drink more than a serving or two of a mixed drink, and only at a catered simcha (never at home or at shul).October 31, 2010 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #706968EnderParticipant
Cant go wrong with Basil HaydensNovember 1, 2010 1:38 am at 1:38 am #706969

Both of your favorites are on the problematic list, see:November 1, 2010 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #706970charlie brownMember
Did someone mention bourbon?November 1, 2010 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #706971squeakParticipant
Whoa! Long sime, no tea!November 1, 2010 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #706972charlie brownMember
Thanks squeak. I still lurk sometimes to read your hysterical sense of humor but for some bourbon it was worthwhile to log on.November 1, 2010 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #706973gavra_at_workParticipant

bourbon = good. Basil Hayden, knob creek and woodford to name a few.November 1, 2010 9:15 pm at 9:15 pm #706975
Arc, Basil Hayden…feh!, it tastes more like scotch than bourbon; but I’d love to have a l’chaim with you with the others.November 1, 2010 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #706976arcParticipant
when and where I have a mesorah not to turn down a lchaim.November 1, 2010 10:47 pm at 10:47 pm #706977
Ok, anytime and anyplace but it’s gotta be on Shabbos. And I’ll arrange for the herring. I also have a mesorah and that’s not to have a l’chaim alone, or just one.November 1, 2010 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #706978lkwdfellowMember
I mentioned a few favorites on another thread, but it’s always nice to repeat a l’chayim… Corner’s Creek, Knob Creek, Baker’s, Maker’s Mark & Wild turkey rare breed are a few of my personal favorites.
And now, for the herring (which really needs a thread of its own)- there’s nothing like Schwartz’s Matjas.
Kichel – I’m ok withh any type – as long as it’s not sugary…November 1, 2010 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #706979emoticon613Member
ok, this is not actually emoticon613, it’s her roomate… because, as some of you know, she doesn’t drink. I, on the other hand, come from a family of somewhat conissuers. I’m a girl and obviously i’ve never been drunk or tipsy, but I do enjoy a good wine (dry, semi-dry, or dessert — not sweet!)or bourbon anytime- mostly on shabbos, a simcha, or special occasion.
lkwdfellow, you’ve got good taste. my particular favorite is maker’s mark 46. it has a nice aroma, full woody caramelly taste that blends nicely with the alcohol- neither is too overpowering, and it has a nice aftertaste, not bitter like other bourbons.November 2, 2010 12:55 am at 12:55 am #706980mosheroseMember

Purim ad dlo yada?November 2, 2010 1:54 am at 1:54 am #706981
lkwdfellow, I like your list and I would add Rock Hill Farms to it. I lost Old Weller to the Kol Korei.November 2, 2010 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #706982lkwdfellowMember
The all-time winner in my humble opinion is Rowan’s Creek. It’s not very expensive, has a great taste and deserves to be the YWN Coffee Room Bourbon of the Year.November 3, 2010 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #706983theprof1Participant
I’m not a bourbon guy, never was, strictly single malt scotch. but… I’ve had some really good bourbons and has nothing to do with price. Old Weller is great and inexpensive. Weller makes a few names but the Old Weller is best. 1792. Stagg. Bookers but its strong. Henry Clay is fantastic but forget about that. I have the only bottle in the world. The rest, eh soso.November 4, 2010 4:10 am at 4:10 am #706984
Here is the problem list; some of my favorites are on it too:
A. Smith Bowman
Elmer T Lee
George T. Stagg
House of Stuart
Old Rip Van Winkle
Pappy Van Winkle
Rich & Rare
Rock Hill Farms
Thomas H. Handy
Very Old Barton
W L WellerNovember 5, 2010 3:03 am at 3:03 am #706985metrodriverMember
Old Weller (107 proof); wild Turkey (101 Proof. The 80 Proof is “Mayim Acharonim water”.); Old Grand Dad (114 Proof)Some Vodkas are great.Smirnoff Blue label 100 Proof. Most of the fancy Vodkas and Bourbons are in 80 Proof, which is equivalent to Mayim Acharonim. It’s not important what you drink. The Ikker for a Shikker is to drink in moderation and be in control.
