Whisky, bourbon or scotch and what's your favorite?

Being born and raised in South Florida I always like a good black spiced rum…but of the the 3 options you gave me; a good Tennessee Whiskey is the only choice.
 
Might make a few of you big spenders cringe, but bought a bottle of Jameson Orange the other day just to see, and because it's only $24. Jameson is a pretty satisfying cheap daily sipper anyway. Is actually pretty nice for a flavored whisky, and an ice cube cranks it up a bit. Saving up for a bottle of Brenne. ($65). I'm not a big dollar spirit spender. I prefer finding the good stuff around $30 give or take that stands neck and neck with the expensive stuff. And like wine I'm pretty good at pulling it off. Proper 12 Irish Apple was also quite good.
Jameson Orange is one of my favorites!!!!
 
Meh, bourbon, whiskey, whisky....much ado about nothing. This idea that you're not allowed to call a spirit "bourbon" if it's not made in Kentucky or like the "e" or absence thereof makes a difference? Gotta say I wouldn't wanna sit and have a drink with someone so anal about things like this. You call it whatever you like. All I care about is how does it taste. I saw no problem with your post....none.
You're from Cali, no one cares what you think :p

The best whiskey is the one you like.
 
Been a few years since I created this thread lol. I haven't came on volnation in a few years and had a bunch of notifications lol. I quit drinking back on Jan 1st 2017. I will say I do miss some good scotch though. Glendronach 15 year ultimately became my favorite for those who enjoy a good scotch!

I haven't had a drop in about 2 years.
Don't miss it.
 
Was just at a bar on Long Island and ordered Weller Special Reserve. It was a heavy pour and only cost 11 bucks.

Will go back to get Blantons assuming that will be reasonable.

Weller SR is a 29 dollar bottle for me. Blantons has gotten too high for my blood considering I believe there is better bourbon at a lesser price point.

Yeah, I know it can be found in places at a reasonable cost, unfortunately not for me. So when I am away from home I take advantage of it. I never see it except when I am out of town.

This was a pleasant surprise. Was in Knoxville for the weekend. Felt right to get a bottle of this but didn’t have high expectations. It was really good! A little sweet but I still enjoyed it. For $50 it is worth a try.
 
My favorite everyday is Buffalo trace of recent. I picked up a bottle of weller 12 today. And I am cracking open a Yellowstone single barrel this weekend.
Just picked up a Stagg. My store is hold a Weller 12 for me to get tomorrow. What did you have to pay for the 12?
