Yep- should have been Woodford. My bad.

For Scot's Whisky, for the GOOD stuff, Antiquary, Famous Grouse.

Gin? Bombay Blue Sapphire

For sipping- Dickel is pretty good stuff. Ezra Brooks is excellent. But that small batch that Uncle Willy ran off about 15 yrs ago, and put in the barrel to age is the stuff of legends. Man used to grow and grind his own corn, no sugar in the mash, distilled 3 times. But Uncle Willy is gone, and when that run is gone, it is gone.








Until he makes parole.

Wine Enthusiast is a pretty formidable source. Granted, the name of the publication is not Vodka Enthusiast, though, and on that much we can agree!

No one here likes tequila? Patron is always golden.

The same Wine Enthusiast that gave us these ratings in 2005?

The Fifty Best - Wine Enthusiast's Best Spirits of 2005 - Page 5

Skyy 90 - 96/100
Stoli Elite - 96/100
Xcellent - 96/100
Hangar One - 96/100

As a matter of fact they had EIGHT vodkas that ranked 96/100 in 2005.

Or in 2009: http://www.wineenthusiast.com/pdf/Top50Spirits2010.pdf

Cape North Vodka - (90-95 out of 100 without specifics)
Double Cross Luxury - (90-95 out of 100 without specifics)
Absolut Citron - 98/100 (flavored category)
Finlandia Grapefruit Infusion - 92/100 (flavored category)

I understand they may like your Tito's, but they are PAID to promote certain brands, and their track record isn't exactly what I would call "impartial". That is why you won't see them rate brands that aren't in the lime light and don't have high dollar marketing campaigns very often, they stick with the people that buy advertising in their magazine the same way the gun rags do.

You won't see Armadale make many lists, because it's owned by Jay-Z and company, but it's a pretty damn good vodka too, but it is over-priced.

That idiot Puff-Daddy tried to climb on the "Look at me vodka pioneer" train with Ciroc and we all know what a crap vodka that is.

If it makes you feel better I will add Tito's to my "Upper Tier" vodkas when price is considered.

I thought that was pretty much a given.

Although try a Don Julio 1942 sometime and see what you think.

Glenfiddich 15 year Solara Scotch is by far my favorite, The Dalmore is a distant second.
I was disappointed by Woodford Reserve when I tried it.
Knob Creek is very good,as is Single Barrel Jack, but my pick for a cheaper whiskey that taste like it's way more expensive is Bulleit Bourbon

On occasion I'll have some Absolute or Bombay Saphire on the shelf, but I almost always keep some Jagermeister on hand for emergencies

A good dark rum that's almost as smooth as bourbon is Bundaberg Red. It's triple-filtered I think, using a redgum filter in the final step and the result is smooth and flavoursome.

Like, accidental poisonings when the operator tells you to induce vomiting in the victim and the site of your junk isn't doing the trick???

Next time I'm cleared to drink I'll give that a try. My roommate and I used to enjoy Herradura as well.

You don't like Jager? I used to put that stuff on my pancakes.
