Kerosine doesn't cost that much.
And in comparison kerosene doesn't taste that bad

My girlfriend came in last night and handed me a bottle of Four Roses small batch, she was so proud. She thought she had gotten me the small batch select, bless her heart. I tried it, wasn't bad but it's no single barrel, had to add a little water to it. It will work as an everyday drinker so to speak.
Think I'm gonna be a guy who likes a little sweet, and a peppery bite to my whiskey and the Four Roses single barrel has that IMO
I'm more of a mixer though I don't mind a sipping whiskey / bourbon.
I'm not sure what would qualify as a good mixing whiskey but when I tried the small batch one of the first things I thought of was it might be a good one to mix with, even the girlfriend agreed.
The Small Batch and Single Barrel are quite different, and some folks prefer the Small Batch even as a sipper. It was very nice of your girlfriend to think of you.
It's quite interesting to see how Four Roses comes up with their different recipes. It's also a fun distillery to visit if you're ever in the neighborhood.
I think she's gonna be a keeper! I had two glasses of the small batch tonight while watching my Hogs play Texas A&M in basketball. One glass per half and I really enjoyed it. I liked it best with a touch of water added.
Wondering if it'd be worth it to order some of the harder to get whiskey online. Guess it depends on how much a man is willing to pay.
I've been curious as well though my personal thought is that I won't break $75 for the enjoyment of a bottle.
There are four I favor:
1. Makers 46
2. Elijah Craig
3. Woodford Reserve
Just tried to see if I could buy a bottle of Buffalo Trace online and there's no shipping of alcohol to my area . Not sure if it's because I live in a dry county or if it's the whole state of Arkansas
Which one of the Elijah Craig's?
Two words .....
I find Four Roses a bit milder than what I usually drink. I like a fuller bold taste.
You might like Elijah Craig Cask Strength!
I think I've found my everyday drinker. Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey. Orange label. For $23.00 a bottle it's a very good pour. IMO
Been looking, haven't been able to find the cask strength.
It’s available in the state store system here in Pa.
I'll continue to look. Did pick up a bottle of Blanton's. Haven't opened it yet but I did get a chance to try some from a friend and I'll have to say, it's really good!
If you like Blantons, you’ll like Woodford Reserve. They have similar taste profiles.
