Don't drink much whisky but when I do it's always bourbon that I can't afford.
Like Woodford Reserve, Rare Breed, and Jeffersons' Ocean.
Hot days by the grill or smoker, Pabst Blue Ribbon in a frosted glass is hard to turn down.
Don't believe it, ask the neighbors.

Bourbon is the only American spirit. Therefore, I have tried many and found my taste turns to Woodford Reserve, Noah's Mill, and Eagle Rare 10yr. When I am feeling Irish my go-to is Power's Gold or Dubliner (which is finished in bourbon casks).

Well, that's not really so. I don't drink bourbon but still occasionally dip into some "American spirits" (even if by "American" you mean US or North American varieties only). Although bourbon is prevalent in the US, many other different spirits are considered "American" (including rye whiskey, rye malt whiskey, malt whiskey, wheat whiskey, and corn whiskey), not to mention a number of "south of the border" spirits (tequila, rum, etc.).

Just sayin' (in a pedantic sort of way)...

What about Tennessee Whiskey?... which is not labeled or sold as bourbon?  Rum - which came into existence in the Americas because of sugar cane....? And let us not forget moonshine/white liquor ( can't get more "American" than that)...which is not bourbon because it is never aged in a toasted Oak barrel.

Full disclosure...I am a Jack Daniels Squire. ;D So is ACW3. Even so - we try not to take "absolutist" positions.

Reading through this thread makes me thirsty! 

Favor to ask:  I take some R.A. medicine that precludes all but the tiniest sip of great booze, so as you knock one back, have another one for me  8).  Fortunately, I can still consume GRAVY.

My wife also likes her Tequila, as long as she has lots of limes and "NO" salt at all.

I'm always willing to take one for the team - consider it done (several times over).

Before I had to quit drinking alcohol, I was a jack or crown and Coke guy. I preferred beer like Samuel Adams, Shock Top, Stella Artois and the ever popular Coors Light. I miss those days sometimes. Drink several for me everyone!

W.L. Weller Special Reserve is supposed to be the same recipe as Pappy Van Winkle; having had just a single glass of Pappy I can’t really vouch for that claim but the Weller bourbons are outstanding and very affordable.  Can’t go wrong with Maker’s Mark ... or even my guilty pleasure 100 Proof Southern Comfort.  :)

3 of us went Elk hunting this year. On the road we "re-discovered" Weller. We actually re-discovered a LOT of liquor stores along I-40 between North Carolina and Colorado... :D :D :D ( None of us drink much. Just have curious tastebuds - like all folks that love bbQ and cooking..) And - during the multiple hours of discussions...of of course tasting... ;D we also found an on-line recipe that is supposed to be the "Poor Man's Pappy":

The write up makes me want to try it. But, for now I have too little space to age another bottle or cask of anything for now.
