    Shout out to NY Distilling's Rock & Rye. Pre-mixed cocktails are almost always shitty, but theirs is super subtle and pretty delicious.

    Widow Jane is a tough one..... while they are making some of their own stuff, they started off by completely sourcing their product and bottling it. When I went to their distillery for a tour, their sourced product wasn't bad at all, but their own product was mixed - the cheap stuff tasted cheap, their really pricey stuff was good, but not worth the price.

    A good local distillery, down the block from Widow Jane, is Van Brunt Still House. They have a very nice Sweet Rye that I think they only sell to tours - it's worth it.

    I have a new chant:

    EVAN WILLIAMS

    *clap* *clap* *clap clap* *clap*

    Best sung at home, since its namesake is not served in the stadium.

    High West Campfire. Made in Wyoming. Not a pure bourbon, but a blend of bourbon, rye, and a peaty Scotch Islay whiskey. If you like the idea of the strong peaty, smoky Scotch whiskeys but find them a bit much, this is toned down by maybe a third. Still has a bite, but much more drinkable.

    Wyoming Whiskey. Smooth, rich. Smoother on the tongue and throat than its nose would suggest. Made by an award-winning former master distiller at Makers Mark. Recent brand and more recent batches have a better reputation than the early ones. A bit pricey for its quality, but well worth trying especially if you find yourself in the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in downtown Jackson, Wyoming.
    Plus, if you're ever in Jackson you would be a fool not to find yourself in said bar.

    ETA: WW does not call itself a bourbon but I'm fairly certain it complies with all the requirements.

    After returning from the Wyoming trip I wanted to buy a bottle of both the High West Whiskey Campfire and the Wyoming Whiskey I described above. The High West website was good and listed both bars and liquor stores where I could find it. But the Wyoming Whiskey website just listed distributors on its "Where to Buy" page. That didn't really help. So I googled "wyoming whiskey nyc" and found this great resource:

    https://1000corks.com/

    Search for any wine or spirit and your zip code and you get a list of places nearby that carry it. EZPZ

    Someone gave me a bottle of Chivas Regal 12. It's really not bad for the price.

    I'm aware. The post also didn't deserve it's own thread so... here we are.

    For anyone who likes an old fashioned, may I recommend Rock and Rye.

    I had it at the New England tailgate, whoever you were that offered it to me thank you, I don't remember much afterwards.

    Delicious.

    Boys, we had way too much Four Roses Small Batch and egg nog. I'm at the age where my entire next day can be ruined by 3 stiff drinks.

    If there's one thing I've learned here it's that you all take threads and liquor very seriously.

    I think this group takes most things seriously and that isn't a bad thing. I view the regulars here as generally more refined.

    Well, since the forum takes their whiskey seriously, everybody should know that the dirty little secret in the whiskey industry is that a vast majority of the "craft" brands people rant and rave about are sourced from mega distillers. My wife works in the alcohol industry so I learned about this before the following referenced link:
    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...bly-from-a-factory-distillery-in-indiana.html

    http://recenteats.blogspot.com/p/the-complete-list-of-american-whiskey.html?m=1

    If you don't want to take the time to check the list, the quickest way to do a spot check is to look on the label and if the whiskey has been aged longer than the company has been around.... dead giveaway.... and there are some really big brands that do this - whistlepig does their damndest to dance around the issue with creative wording on their label, not wanting to admit they only bottle it. High West is another.

    I'm not trying to say there's anything wrong with drinking one brand over another, but that awesome brand just discovered could literally be the same recipe bottled under a dozen other labels.... and the price reflects the funky name & bottle's shape rather than the spirit inside.
