    Depends on the bank roll, but if I had my druthers, and price isn't a concern, I'll be drinking a good single malt of some sort. Mac 18 or 25, Lagavulin, Laphroaig 18, or some of the smaller batch Ardbegs etc.

    For your every day, run of the mill Bourbon, I go for the small batch Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, Makers 46, or the limited batch Woodford Reserve.

    Once you really start getting into Bourbon's it's really easy to get "lost" in it. There are so, so many better alternatives than Jack, Jim and Johnnie for virtually the same price.

    I don't like the taste of whiskey or rye. I had the opportunity to tour the Jameson's distillery in Dublin but I chose the Guinness Storehouse instead. That was cool!

    However I've had nice cognac

    Years ago in my early twentys I had a violent puke session after a night of J.D.
    Now just the smell of it turns me off. Funny thing is I can drink any and all other whiskey's / Bourbon's. Makers Mark is now my one of choice.

    Have you tried the Makers 46? It's a really, really great Bourbon and doesn't cost all that much more than regular Makers. Costco was carrying it for a bit at the same price as regular Makers. Definitely worth a try, especially if you like regular Makers.

    Jameson or Jack Daniels?

    Jack Daniels, all day and night for me. I don't need anything else, not even a glass. Never yacked. Never a hangover either. I don't buy it very often however. It's too good and I could see myself changing from a functioning alcoholic to an absolutely dysfunctional drunk in a big hurry with Jack.

    I used to have a rock crawler Jeep. All built up with 1 ton drivetrain and 39" Swamper Iroks. It was huge. The last time I took it out, Jack was co-piloting. Our group decided to do a night run. About 2:00AM, Jack got the best of me and my Jeep was toasted. Jack and I hiked back up to camp in the dark. The worst thing about it, after a crazy night where Jack made me wreck my Jeep, the next morning when it was time to do repairs, Jack was all gone! I couldn't find him anywhere. What an a-hole. That trip cost me $1200 in repairs, all thanks to my buddy, Jack.

    Even though I love JD single barrel a couple others I like
    are Blanton's, Jefferson's Reserve, and Angle's Envy. These
    are worth a try if you are into whisky.

    same thing happened to me with cheap rum, the smell alone almost makes me blow chunks.

    I prefer Jack, unless money is no concern. I think that Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, and Woodford Reserve are the favorites for sure.

    Nope never tried MM 46 but it sounds worthy of adding to my bucket list. Thank's for the tip.

    To me a glass of Bacardi and,Coke is my normal go to mixed drink at a bar. But as you said some of the cheap rums are pretty bad.

    Of the two Jameson gets the nod, but if you like Irish whiskey, try Tulamore Dew or Powers...both are far superior sippin whiskey to Jameson.

    Same here, 20th birthday, 20 shots, (stoopid college ritual) woke up in my own bed with strange woman.
    No clothes, no escape - never again. To this day I can't stand JD's smell.
    If bourbon, prefer Wild Turkey 101, and if Scotch a single malt, Jameson's 18 yr is sublime.
    The best is the one you want to ride most often..
