Felt bad hijacking the High End Bourbon thread.

I drink my fair share of Bulleit Rye. It's 95% rye! It's small batch and the tops.

This thread is making me think I should reconsider the idea of a whiskey-registry for my birthday this year.

I've come to the conclusion that I'll drink most anything. It's all good...some better than others.

If I'm drinking rye it's going to be Rittenhouse. No better for the price point.

In a frosted glass with rocks.

The Reverend Elijah Craig was very instrumental in Bourbon history.

He had been making Bourbon for years. But then his distillery caught fire. Damaged a lot of his oak barrels. For kicks he said, lemme try it in these charred barrels. This created a small batch bourbon whose conditions are now part of Bourbon Law. He labeled it "Old Bourbon." It was an immediate hit. When it ran out people laments the Bourbon by Rev. Elijah Craig. Due to this, many people mistakenly think that the good Reverend created Bourbon. I have found that attempting to educate the misinformed on this point is pointless.

Do you fellows buy into the premise that each man is either a bourbon drinker or a scotch drinker?
Perhaps not 100% either way, but largely prefers one and tolerates the other?

No.I might be the exception, but I enjoy each equally and thoroughly. But I am picky as to which batches/blends/Island-sides that I'll partake from regularly. Same goes for Gin, Vodka, etc.
