Beam makes good bourbon in general, and the black label is way better than people might think.
There aren't really very many large scale Bourbon makers. Maybe only three that make TN whiskey, and I agree about Dickel.
Elijah Craig barrel proof
Trying an experiment today. Typical rainy day here in the northwest woods, so I'm spending the afternoon cold smoking a variety of cheese. Saw a link recently where folks, when they cold smoke something, put some bourbon in the smoker as well. I have about 6 oz of Jim Beam Black in there now. Been smoking for a little over an hour. Will let it go for another hour and then we'll see what we have.
Not anymore, but was a big drinker of Bulleit Bourbon
I picked up a bottle of Old Grand Dad 114 today, I heard a rumor they discontinued it because they make more profit on the 100 proof. Listening to a little music while I sip a bit.

The wife broke my favorite whiskey glass this morning. It was a glencairn style glass. She said it was an accident.
Sorry to hear that, glencairn's are my favorite for sipping bourbon, or any type whiskey. I'm about to have a little Dickel #12 in one now.
In a way it all worked out. I went down to the base this morning to the class 6 store (that's military for booze). They had all the special Xmas gift sets marked way down. Bought two whiskeys that each came with 2 glencairn glasses. Now I have four glasses and more whiskey. Just in time for football this weekend.
I really enjoy 86 proof Old Forester. It's not expensive and I think it's quite good. I am also a fan of rye whiskeys, most notably Bulleit Rye. I enjoy Old Fashioneds and Manhattans.
1st Woodford reserve
2nd Pappy Van Winkles
3rd Buffalo Trace
6th Old Grand dad.
Elijah Craig barrel proof (Hazmat).. currently open
Blantons... for Xmas, so not sure which one... but Gold would be nice..
For bourbon my favorites are Woodford Reserve and Basil Hayden's. Then after that there's a whole bunch in the drinkable group.
And for the Tennessee stuff: Dickel No. 12
My daughter just gave me a bottle of Dickel No. 8. Tasty stuff
I was gonna say this, but I'll just piggyback on this gentleman's entry if he doesn't mind
Sounds like grounds for an Article 15 to me.
That's what I thought - however, we ran an Article 32 investigation and there was not enough evidence to take it forward. No witnesses except the dog and she wasn't talking.
