    I now live an 18 minute walk away from an awesome distillery (Motor City Gas) and tonight they’re releasing a scotch and I’m so pumped

    Wife got me Booker’s Small Batch “Country Ham” for Christmas. Excited to try it.

    Relative novice Whiskey/Bourbon guy but I look forward to diving in

    Enjoy! If you go to try it neat, a lot of time adding a little water can open it up those higher proof bourbons quite nicely. Not a necessity at all, but could elevate/give something a little different to the experience.

    I have a horrendous problem where I mix even really nice whiskey in ginger ale or Diet Coke. A bartender even questioned me recently and was like “ You mean just a splash.. right..?” EMBARRASSING

    I am drinking a bulliet and diet now and it’s my favorite drink.

    Thanks! I tried it neat but eventually went over a cube. I loved it!


    Moved on to an Old Fashioned made from one of the local distilleries. How does everyone feel about/make their Old Fashions?

    Ignore them. That’s a bad bartender. Drink what you enjoy!!

    yeah good okay Supporter

    I know it's not fancy, but I've been listening to a Hunter S. Thompson audiobook and he makes Wild Turkey sound great so i picked up the 101 for $20. Good for its price.

    Absolutely. Not really much of anything that can top it at the price point.

    Their older stuff (80s-early 00s) was especially good. Just did a trade for some 2000s era WT 101 rye. Had some from 06 that was some of the best rye I’ve ever tasted.

    I need to explore rye more, I tend to stick to scotch these days. I like what I've tried.

    I don't know what it is, but I've just never been into Wild Turkey. Maybe I need to try it again. But for the price, there's other whiskeys I'd rather have.

    Nice! Good luck! I scored a Van Winkle rye and Old Rip 10 this fall. Stuff is ridiculously hard to find.

    It's pretty sweet but not too bad. I mixed it with a stout on Sunday and that was pretty good.
