Exactly...But dont label it like you made it when you didnt. I dont care who makes it. If it's good its good and good job. Not knocking MGP. Isnt that the only place still putting out the old segrams 7 blend?

I don't know about the 7. Truthfully there's a lot that goes into it after it leaves MPG. Look at how many use the same mash bill but taste completely different.

I was at total wine yesterday looking in the bourbon section, and one of their employees asked what I was looking for. I said I was just browsing. He suggested I try the Two Star bourbon. I've seen it before, but tried it. Anyway he talked me into it. Driving home I regretted the purchase, what did this young kid know about bourbon. Last night I tried some neat, and was pleasantly surprised. It was quite good.

Last year I spent 4 days in Kentucky touring about 4 distilleries a day, as well as a barrel manufacturer. Sampled so many different bourbons, wish I would have taken tasting notes on all of them. Four Roses small batch, and Fours Roses single barrel were two of my favorites. I highly recommend doing the Kentucky bourbon trail if you ever get the chance. But not during Derby week.

A good tour in Texas is Garrison brothers in Hye. Very nice, small distillery, in the middle of a ranch, between Johnson City and Fredericksburg. Their single barrel is very good.

I like it in an old fashion. Is it Willett? Not even close but better than a lot to me as a mixer.

They don't make any of their own stuff anymore. It's all from a mass production place in Indiana that makes the bulk of whiskey and bourbon for the us "distillers". The bourbon I believe is made by Kirin who makes 4 Roses

I'd wonder if they switched out the booze and filled the bottle with some low grade stuff? Has been known to happen

I really don't understand the hype with blantons, I guess I just drink to much whiskey and most all the stuff taste the same. One drink I really enjoy and that stands out taste wise from the other stuff is Drambuie

2nd bottle of Blanton's is almost done, this new one is going into the bunker. I used my one other cork as a Christmas ornament for the tree. Looking forward to getting the centerpiece the corks go in. Heathbar_tx

You know, I never thought about it but I guess they would be different. The horse and rider are in different positions. Well, I guess I would need either one at this point.

A man owes it to himself an aged Single Barrel whiskey over 110 proof and as smooth for straight sippin as water. Thats how you judge a better whiskey, since there ain't a bad whiskey.

I tried some Crown XO last weekend, I like it better than regular crown. I'll be buying several bottles of it and will probably make it my new drink for awhile.

Lol. I'm no one to tell a person what taste good to them, but agreed some of these "go to's" aren't worthy of washing a paint brush in.

... but that's why they make several different ones

I am not much of a whiskey drinker but I was talking to a really good customer of mine before Christmas and he mentioned Rebecca Creek. Anyways, about a week and a half before Christmas, he texts me asking for my address. about 3 days later my wife says I have a package at the house. He sent me a bottle of Rebecca Creek. I like it mixed with coke.

Scored 3 bottles of Blantons today the store set back for me, so I'm good there for awhile. They buy it out as soon as it hits the shelf. Little over priced.... but dang good!

Went and set up camper this afternoon, and had to head back to work. Stopped by an old liquor store that's about shut down, haven't been there in 6-7 years. Scored another bottle of Blantons and picked up some eagle rare to sample... don't know what to really expect from a $29 bottle of bourdon

Eagle Rare is Buffalo Trace's big brother. The same family as EH Taylor, and Pappy. Eagle Rare is hard come by right now in my parts. It will be sold out in a matter of hours at 2 of my stops. And you got it for about $20 less than what I have to pay when I find it.

When I find it, it is usually around $30-35. In my opinion, there's nothing better in the price range.

A guy working at Specs who has never led me wrong, swore up and down that Kentucky Vintage will stand with anything in the price range. This bottle was under $30 and I'm happy with it as a change of pace. It won't replace my Four Roses small batch however.

Did a blind tasting this weekend with makers 46 ( my pick as best in price range) vs eagle rare (gave less than $30 for it, so didn't really expect it th win out).....and it didn't. Eagle rare is however very good if you can acquire it at $35 or under. The 46 beat it hands down in every way it could... but it a $45 bottle.
