    All bourbons are whiskeys, but not all whiskeys are bourbons.

    By law bourbon must:

    1. Be made in the USA
    2. Made from a mashbill of at least 51% corn
    3. Be aged a minimum of 2 yrs in new charred white oak barrels
    4. Not be distilled above 160 proof
    5. Not have anything added to it except spring water to cut it[unlike some scotches and Canadian whiskeys that have flavorings and colorings added]

    My favorite bourbons are:[in no particular order]

    Ezra B Single Barrel
    Old Ezra 101
    Ezra Brooks 90 Pf - my daily pour
    Buffalo Trace
    Eagle Rare Single Barrel
    OGD 114

    So, any other bourbon drinkers here?

    Admittedly I am a scotch drinker, but when I drink bourbon, I like Basil Hayden.

    I'm not a Bourbon-connoisseur by any means, but when I'm drinking it I always go for Elmer T. Lee


    ......Sam's Wine & Liquor (the place where I get my stuffs) has private stocks "hand-selected" for them, whatever that's good for.

    WOW !
    You are the man ::
    I just cant do it......way too "hot" for me.
    Usually I like mine with a cube of "aged" ice to cool it and cut it a bit or "Chilled" in a shaker and strained.

    Does neat mean "pure"? I always drink my bourbon this way.
    I don't know many sorts of bourbon. But I really enjoy Woodford Reserve

    But I keep your recommendations in mind :cool:

    I love it on the rocks, sometimes with coke or ginger ale, or Lynchburg lemonade in the summertime.

    Blantons - Oh so good............ special occasion stuff
    Woodford Reserve - Excellent, deep & complex flavor
    Old Rip Van Winkle's - Interesting stuff in any vintage
    Buffalo Trace - best value on the market, great everyday bourbon
    Wild Turkey - A good drink that can be found anyplace

    Yesterday I tasted the other bourbon I have at home again. I think it's worth a recommendation.
    It is called W.L. Weller centennial
    Does anybody know this?

    Hey Stefan !
    WL Weller is good stuff.

    I had some of the 12 y/o awhile back and was really impressed.
    I'll have to try the Centennial
