"Bourbon Drinkers: NYE Suggestions?"


  

          

Yo, I'm looking for a good quality bourbon to bring to an NYE party tomorrow.

I need something that's good with a couple of ice cubes or in a Manhattan.

I'm tempted to just go with some Buffalo Trace or maybe Larceny, but what are y'all sippin' on?

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I like Eagles Rare, Buffalo Trace is good too. James Pepper 1776 on that list as well. Someone I know puts out a small batch, Breckenridge that's been a hit if they sell it where you are. One of my co-workers put me on to Sam Houston which I find comparable in taste to a Makers Mark, but it's only around $20 a bottle.

Streets won't let me chill.

I prefer scotch to bourbon though so my opinion ain't 100% trustworthy.

Now that you aren't young and strictly drinking it to get fucked up, you can sit back and appreciate it's character.

OGD 114 is much better than 100. I like 100 to unwind after a long day and 114 for special occasions.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

Evan is marginally drinkable, which is why I only recommend it for mixed drinks.

Evan and Coke for the unrefined works. Whiskey sour with Evan ain't all that bad.

If you're like me and usually drink your bourbon neat or with a water, then Evan is unacceptable.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

I didn't realize it extended beyond Van Winkle. I feel like they saw the frenzy over the supposed robbery, and applied the same move with their other premium bottles (not that they see a cut). There's a Hasidic shop by me that has a supply of all the Pappy's, he's selling Old Rip 10yr for $350 and the 23yr for $1800...and said he's had buyers.

The 20 years are tricky but some are available in less-old vintages (e.g., Elijah Craig).

To sip-
Knob Creek, their Single Barrel Reserve specifically (which is my fav from the Jim Beam family, including Bookers and Basil Haden)
http://www.knobcreek.com/knob-creek-single-barrel-reserve

For a cocktail-
The best quality inexpensive Bourbon that I like, and originated by the fine folks who brought you Pappy, good old Rebel Yell, or even Rebel Reserve.
http://rebelyellbourbon.com/
It's my utility wheated Bourbon, I never don't have some in a decanter next to my good shit. It may not be as complex as Makers (which I don't like to mix with) or the 12 yr Pap, but it's perfect for mixing.

It's good enough to drink on its own, but cheap enough to not feel guilty about mixing.

And if you're drinking with non-drinkers, they'll be intrigued with the bottle.

30. "Four Roses Small Batch"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Affordable and damn good.

We cracked open a bottle on Friday with a few friends…there might be a couple shots left at the most.

Also got our usual gift of Angel's Envy for the holidays. I guess you can't technically call it bourbon since it's aged in port wine/rum (for the rye) barrels, but it's always a hit at our place. I think I heard it was marketed towards female drinkers, but I'm never turning that stuff down if it's offered up neat.

Of course Woodford is always worth bringing. Low-key, that might be what I'd choose to sip if I could only have one bourbon for the rest of my life. The texture is fucking perfect.

i've been gifted with 2 scotches (a high quality blended islay which i thought i'd hate) and a Dalmore (not an islay but yumsies nonetheless. not peaty but coffee/chocolate like)

but i miss bourbon. i dont even have a 'meh' bottle around for drinks and cooking, which i used to do. i should at least remedy that

I just saw this and copped a bottle.

I also got a fifth of Woodford for 24 dollars. It was on sale. Regularly 30.

Also got a Basil Hayden's fifth for 31.99, reg price.

Jim Beam Black. It's cheap as fuck, not rot gut and a generally well-regarded sipper or mixer. Not terribly complex but it's a good bottl for a party. 14.00 for a fifth here and it's winning awards.

Wild Turkey 101. I can get it between 17-20 here. Strong proof but smooth, sweet, spicy. Good neat, on the rocks or mixed in a old fashioned.

Knob Creek too although it has a bit of a brand-specific taste (think Ketel One or Goose) which some people may not like.

Four Roses is OK. I don't like Buffalo Trace at all, I think it tastes cheap for the price point.

eagle rare is great, as mentioned. i think it might be the best bourbon value i can think of actually

i think woodford is overrated

grew up on turkey so itll always have a soft spot
