Thread: Good bourbon

  1. #261
    Can someone explain to me what a "rye" means vs other bourbons?

  2. #262
    I live in Louisville where bourbon flows like water at every social function.

    I've come to the conclusion that there's no such thing as a _bad_ bourbon. The people who make bourbon take it very seriously and even the less expensive stuff produced in large scale is made with a lot of love and care. However, each bourbon has its own personality and you have to find one that suits you. That means trying them out.

    In our home, we keep a bottle of Wild Turkey 101, because that's what suits me. I like a "hot" drink.

    What do we bring the party or give as a gift to people from out of town? Woodford Reserve, Booker, Knob Creek. It's hard to go wrong.

    P.S.
    If you can get past the funny name, "Rebel Yell" is pretty darned good.

    I posted this on the Smoking Food thread, but it deserves to be here as well. I picked up some Makers Mark 46 French Oak staves while I was in KY for the bachelors party to use in the smoker. I threw one in last week doing some ribs and Boston butts. The smell was heavenly, and it left a nice flavor on the ribs. I wish I had bought more now.

    You're going to be drinking for awhile

    I'm on a conf call with China right now and the Hudson Manhattan Rye I'm drinking is the only way I'm able to cope.

    Bassins (aka McArthur Beverage) and Pearsons (Calvert and Wisconsin) both have it. I also think Ace Beverage on New Mexico carries it.

    I'm pretty sure you can also buy it on drinkupny.com.

    My cousin is coming in to town and she made me buy a bottle of the bourbon variety of Firefly Sweet Tea booze. It's actually not bad, cube of ice and a squirt of lemon.

    You work in Chinatown, right? There's a liquor store next to Cowgirl Creamery on F between 9 and 10 (might be called Capital Liquors or something). Looks kinda sketchy on the outside but they may have it. I haven't been in there in 3 or so years, but they used to have a pretty nice whiskey selection.

    I wondered if that liquor store was any good. I'll have to stop by and check it out. In the daytime.

    Sipping on a big glass of Makers Mark 46, after the day I've had, it's a welcome end cap.

    place is awesome. having a liquor store so close to me has been bad news for the wallet though.
