    But -- did he say what SIZE of alcoholic drink?

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    I stick with second shelf myself. Most Folgers Columbian, it's not top shelf Starbucks Pike Peak, but I like it.

    LOL, my wife limits it to one shot, but the size of that shot has gotten larger over time. I imagine if my sugar numbers got out of whack she would say something to me about cutting it back. Between her and the kids, there is a good bit of oversight as to what I eat and drink...and I know it is all out of love.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.

    I was gifted a bottle of Eagles Rare Platinum last Christmas. This is very good bourbon for sipping for a evening warm up.

    I am with you on Jack Daniels...at least the Old No. 7 which is the only one I have ever tried. Haven't tried their other offerings but will be touring their distillery early next year as I have a buddy from Brazil coming for a visit and that is one of his "Must see" places. Oddly enough, Jack Daniels does everything I think you should do in making whiskey...especially their charcoal filtering, but I just don't like their product despite them doing everything 'right'.

    I do have a 1.75L bottle of Evan Williams White label (bonded) that I like quite a bit. I don't drink whiskey or bourbon straight very often, though. I tend to mix it with Coke so no sense in spending a huge amount on a fine bourbon just for that. A favorite of mine back in Michigan that I am having problems finding in SC is Ezra Brooks. I have seen it listed at stores near me but I never find it in-stock which is why I opted for the White label Evan Williams. That bottle was less than $30....I think closer to $27 if I remember correctly. It takes me a long time to drink 1.75L of spirits...so I bought it around Feb of this year and can't remember the exact price.

    My stomach can't take it straight anymore, so I mix as well. However, I don't use Coke. Used to, but I think it hides the flavor too much. Now, I mix with lemon/lime soda. Not 7-UP, which I don't like for some reason, but Kroger brand Big-K cans. Used to buy the 2-liter, but they always went flat before I could finish them. The 12oz cans, although usually higher per ounce, end up being cheaper for me.

    Not to sound too snobby, but this is as bottom-shelf as I'll go on bourbon:

    The cheaper stuff turns my stomach.

    I also mix it with ginger ale from time to time. That was my Dad's favorite way to mix it so I have one mixed that way once in awhile just in his memory! I have to use diet forms of whatever I mix, though.....damned diabetes!

    I love me some Knob Creek... I just don't spend that much usually. Love some Buffalo Trace too but same story.

    As for keeping the home shelves stocked it would consist mostly of Evan Williams, Jim Beam white or better yet now is Jim Beam black. All three of these is what I call just above bottom shelf...

    I enjoy a Rye Whiskey on occasion too. Bulleit brand is currently my favorite of the Rye's (but is also not cost friendly to me), though I haven't tried as many as I would like.

    I will say... these threads end up costing me lots of money because everyone has a suggestion and I'm all about trying a new bourbon...

    I would like to try out more bourbons that use rye grain as I think it appeals to me more. Someone mentioned Buffalo Trace earlier I think that mentioned rye... now I will see if I can find any of their other brands with that nice link that was posted... bye bye money!
