I'm surprised we do not have a thread dedicated to Bourbon's It can be educational. I see no reason to not include Irish whiskies, which I am currently enjoying. Powers Gold Label. I was just introduced to Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, which my SIL likes, so I keep it around. Both are mild compared to a Bourbon. For Bourbon i like to keep Evan Williams around. bang for the buck I enjoy it more then say Wild Turkey, which is harsh. For me, I am drinking this in a glass alone to taste. When socializing it is over ice. Good ice. Funny thing is my older son has gone way past me in the bourbon world. His budget allows him to seek out the subtle differences. To be clear. When one mixes these artistic presentations with sweet soda or any flavor altering additions to the glass they may as well be drinking CC or Windsor blends or what not. I just found out Costco has three different Kirkland brand Bourbons. Anyone???
