The Dumbass Lounge>Any Bourbon drinkers out there?
The Poz 01:04 PM 06-19-2008
I've heard some good things about Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
http://www.buffalotrace.com/

Can't get it up here north of the border but, through a wine distributer I am able to order a case. Would like to hear from someone who knows their stuff and has tried it before I order.

Thanks

I go and look for what I haven't had thats more exciting to me maybe im crazy.
I knew an old oil man once. Fun guy.

Total newb question here but are there any whiskeys/bourbons that are the same proof as say Sailor Jerry's? I've been drinking that lately as it gets you buzzed pretty quick and I don't mind the taste.

Old Granddad 100proof bottled in bond.

Wild Turkey
Old Overholt
Just look for a bourbon with abv 50 or better those will kill ya.

Current batch of Stagg Jr is 130 proof.

Knob Creek Single barrel is 120.


Sailor Jerry is only 92 proof. Most bourbons are 90 so easy to match proof.

I'd venture to bet Wild Turkey 101 would be your buzz and price point.

ABV in the US is defined as half the proof so 100 proof is 50% ACV. A lot of serious bourbon drinkers the magic number is 50 so any over they add a splash of water. Slows down a fatty liver that later turns to sclerosis of the liver. Knob Creek is 55 abv may put a splash water on that one any above that its to your benefit to do same.

:-)

From the guy drinking Sailor Jerry's?!?!

Wild Turkey 101 is more expensive than that shitty Sailor drink as well. Wild Turkey 101 is the perfect mix between between still decent (not great), relatively inexpensive and high alcohol content. That's exactly what it sounded like you were looking for? I use Wild Turkey in many of my whiskey cocktail drinks. It's not considered a trash drink as far as I know. It's all distilled at Wild Turkey under the direction of the Russell boys. That's good as far as I'm concerned.

Was at walmart neighborhood market this evening picking up a pork tenderloin and decided to check the bourbon. To my surprise they had many good single barrel bourbons on clearance. I picked up last two Russel Reserve 10 yo for 15 bucks a bottle also had 6 bottles Elijah Craig 12 yo for 15 a bottle I grabed up 2. Larceny was 10 bucks wasnt interested some like though and I may go back for mixed drinks with that one. Keep an eye out at your walmart's.
