    A friend of ours enjoys him some Red Stag. He isn't known for his taste in alcoholic beverages.

    Not really an expert in that area but he was pretty psyched to get it. I'll have to check it out and report back.

    I recently finished a liter of Paddy Irish Whiskey that I was given that I liked pretty well. I understand that it has just been made available in America fairly recently.
    Yo bro. This is the bourbon thread.

    Seriously though, I also love Irish Whiskey. Paddy's is very good as is Power's. I don't personally drink Bushmills as that's Protestant whiskey.

    There really should just be a whiskey thread for all types of whiskey- bourbon, scotch, irish, canadian (lol), whatever

    Redbreast is one of my favorite whiskeys of any kind. It's really fucking great.

    Any luck with Whiskey Disks over Whiskey Stones? I've read a couple of forums that claim that Whiskey Disks are the better deal.

    I also second the love for Pappy. Their 12 year Reserve is my favorite bourbon without question, although I've never had either of their 20+ year blends.

    Also fuck Wright Thompson, can't find a bottle of Pappy anywhere in NYC thanks to that Simmons-slurping asshat.
    Buckets - head to Fette Sau in Williamsburg ... they have the best bourbon collection in the city. The top, top shelf there is all bottles they buy at auctions and is generally 35 to 50+ years old.

    It's probably the best BBQ in NYC too. Definitely worth a trip. Bring some boys, get a few whiskey flights, a growler of one of the micro-brews on tap and pig out.

    Vad.... way ahead of you. I used to live a couple blocks from there and that was a regular spot. They also have got great beer by the gallon... I always referred to it as "the bbq by the pound and beer by the gallon place"

    Finally finished my fifth of Buffalo Trace. Before and after the wedding this weekend, the groomsmen and myself were passing around a fifth of Four Roses Small Batch. It was quite different from the old stuff he remembered from years ago.

    Quite different good or bad? Four Roses is one of the bottles I'm considering getting next.

    I like the Four Roses Small batch a lot. His memory was of the cheap yellow bottle, which he apparently drank 3/4 of a handle at one sitting back in 1978.

    You'll probably like the Small Batch, it's pretty smooth, but not as smooth as the higher end bourbons.

    Anyone bought a bottle of the Buffalo Trace Single Oak Project?

    I've got a bottle but haven't opened it yet.

    Just picked up a bottle of Bernheim 100% wheat wiskey yesterday. Very clean, very smooth. Similar to Makers (which has a high wheat content), but I like it a lot more than Makers. $39, so not too pricey. Definitely recommend.

    Tried Bernheim last month when I was visiting Louisville, KY. Loved it! Definitely recommend as well.

    Email I just received. Just wanted to humble brag about how awesome that trip was.

    Sadly, the only bourbon they had in St Lucia was Jim Beam White Label. Therefore, I lived on Johnny Walker Black/Gold.
