Speaking of using Bourbon in a mixed drink..

A couple weekends ago I was making Whiskey sours and used Ancient Ancient Aged and they came out great. The stuff is cheap but it definitely worked out great. A lot of non-bourbon drinkers agreed too. FWIW

My bourbon of choice varies, so I always try to keep the following on hand:
Bulliet
Woodford Reserve
Elijah Craig 18 yo
Eagle Rare
1792
Russel's reserve 10 yo
Maker's Mark
That way, I can select according to my mood. Those are the "utility bourbons"

I also have a few others, depending on the week and proximity to pay day. Really good ones don't tend to last very long.

I'd direct you to Eagle Rare as well.
I'm finishing off the last bit of my Eagle Rare, which is chilled in my Flask at the Camper for the weekends.

*Disclaimer I know its not a bourbon*

Currently I am drinking Rittenhouse Rye Bottled in Bond. Thanks to Tony, Patrick and others who mentioned this earlier in the thread. This stuff is fantastic and affordable. For the longest time I couldn't find it around here then Joey (ir13) found it while visiting me for a herf. For any whiskey /bourbon lover it gets my recommendation.

If I could find this locally, I probably wouldn't drink anything else.

Right now I am enjoying the Bulleit.

I like Bulliet. Bulliet has a habit of revealing new flavors as it sits on a few ice cubes for a few minutes, as does the Woodford Reserve. I like it with some of the more full bodied cigars. where I will usually pair a Milder cigar with the Evan Williams single barrel or one of the higher end Russel concoctions; rare breed or Russel reserve 10 yo.

Picked up some new Maker's Mark 46 last night. Has anyone tried this yet? It is pretty good!

I looove some Van Winkle. 12yr Lot B is awesome, but the Pappy 15yr is phenomenal. Hell I'm in KY, work at a liquor store, and it's hard to get a hold of - granted it's a huge liquor store. It may be easier to get at smaller ones around here.

Mmmmm
