That's some good corn Whisky

Post by Jeepsnguns » Sat Jun 13, 2015 6:16 pm

I'm not a Whisky drinker by any stretch.
But every so often I try to make myself one. [smilie=011.gif]
Lately I've discovered Makers Mark and I think I finally found a Whisky I like.
I'm sure some of you are going to say oh heck no that stuff is crap.
But I'm liking it once in a while.
Deep down I'm still a rum guy but this is a good alternative when I'm feeling like having something other than the usual.
Help me out here with your suggestions as to other Whiskeys you all like.

Johnny Black Label for me.
I haven't found any American whiskey or bourbon that I like and somehow I can't drink rum anymore without feeling a jack hammer inside my brain the next morning.
IF I drink rum, Zacapa is what I zip, excellent rum.

Whisky = Scotch
Whiskey = Bourbon
http://www.bulleit.com/ I like this and Two Stars.
Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey doesn't need to be expensive to be tasty, nor does it need to be aged for a long time. I do favor the small batch distillers for special occasions. Watch out for cask strength whiskey that stuff has a powerful kick.

Yep thats very true. My favorite is Knob Creek Single Barrel and that stuff will floor you after two drinks. I think its 60% alcohol. Since I enjoy small batch I tend to favor Gentleman Jack and If I want some Jim Beam I go for the Devils cut. Probably my favorite of them all though is Knob Creek Maple flavored. Its got just a pinch of maple flavor that goes with the small batch really well.

I got some Jim Beam Maple last year, you could put that s';t on pancakes and it'd be great [smilie=pdt_xtremez_30.gif]

I love Makers. And Makers 46 is even better.

If you can find this, try it. Actually Makers Mark helped them to get started.

Fixed it for ya. [smilie=011.gif] I didn't see any FL places listed that carry it yet, and the on-line retailers are charging $80-90 for 750ml. And the Cowboy Bourbon is $200.

GMO corn?

He says that because GMO is now so common, and non-GMO fields can be contaminated with GMO material, it may become impossible for the distillery to remain GMO-free. Other distilleries are having the same issue.

No major American distiller has ever expressed the opinion that GMO grain is dangerous. If they prefer non-GMO it is only because some of their customers, particularly in Europe, insist on it, or require that products containing GMO ingredients must disclose that fact on their labe
