anyone tried JR Ewing? I like it a lot for it's price range. very smooth, and has a heavy oak flavor.

TX bourbon is my favorite right now for under 50$...next would be JR Ewing, followed by my own that I make! I mess around a little with oak barrels from deepsouthbarrels.com and use vodka and their "bourbon essences" and age it for about 4 months. comes out amazingly good.

Silver Star is the best Texas sipping whiskey I've ever had. The same brewery makes 1835 for Spec' s but their own label is far superior.

My old man's bourbon was Jack Daniel's, so I drink that on certain anniversaries.

I've tried a couple but haven't found 'mine,' yet. I hated Buffalo Trace, really liked Eagle Rare.

I have been on the Jack D Single Barrel kick since I discovered it a couple months ago. Much better taste than the old #7.This stuff is legit.
I used to be cheap and drink Crown, but have really gotten into some of the other flavors. Really like Woodford Reserve which is my wifes favorite.

FYI the flavored whiskeys like Jim Beam Maple and the Jack D Tennessee Honey is disgusting. Like to make me gag

Dr. Ezra's Secret Elixir. Cures everything from worms to wet farts. Old Ezra is my go-to. Hard to find, but it tastes good to me and its 101 proof...not that sissy 80 proof Jack and Jim. 1835 and Maker's 46 are good too.

Good thread, there. Writing new stuff to try. 1835 is my wife's favorite bourbon. My bourbon stash doesn't last as long since I turned her into a whiskey girl. JR Ewing, I really enjoyed it plus it has a cool bottle.

You guys drinking Crown and Jack need to get out more. The stuff that is out there these days will make you put that stuff down for good and lose all those mixers.

Here are my favorites with Watkins (available at Total Wine) holding #1 by a looooong margin. Best part is that its $17 a bottle too. I'd drink this $17 stuff over anything higher priced. Its that good.

Unfortunately I have a taste for the rare stuff. Eagle Rare 17yr, George T Stagg, William Larue Weller, Pappy Van Winkle, etc...

As far as stuff you can find on shelves I like Eagle Rare, Blantons, Stagg Jr., Buffalo Trace, and of course good ol Jack Daniels.

Y'all made the end of my week real nice!

The Jefferson's Ocean that DocMay referenced is aged in barrels located on a ship belonging to a relative of Jacques Cousteau. There are 4 levels of Jefferson, and it is the highest. I decided to start at the bottom and work my way up.

If any of y'all have a Twin Liquors in your town, they're running a 15% off special on bourbon until I think May 5.

Bought my first bottle of Ranger Creek 36 and have to say...I am disappointed. First 2-3 sips of each glass are good, almost sweet. But gets less good with each sip thereafter. Still thinking Willets is the first choice.

Long time Crown drinker. Started hitting the R&R Reserve and have backed off on the Crown. Rebecca Creek and Forty Creek are both really good, but didn't pass the hangover test. I don't like waking up feeling like crap when I'm hunting and fishing. I will stick with R&R Reserve and Crown for now.

Red River has long been a favorite of mine, but this latest bottle is way different. The color is more clear red, and it tastes like someone dumped a bunch of red hots into the barrel. Lots of cinnamon and spice in this bottle. Kinda bummed. Still gonna finish it though.
