If you want a good Texas whiskey, Rebecca Creek is nice.As I said, I don't do whiskey, but I'd like to have a bottle of "good stuff" for occasions when folks like y'all show up.
Ya know, a shot or two, or a decent mixer while I have my beer.
Momma brought this home. It is fine and tasty, a cousin of Booker’s above from the Beam Distillery.
It’s funny that I hate Beam because it’s so syrupy, but Knob Creek, Booker’s, and Basil Hayden are much more enjoyable. I still need to try Baker’s to see if it’s more like the premiums.
Sunatory from Japan is very good.
I am on a made in Texas kick. Try Jacob Weldon whiskey distilled in Cleburne.I know I'm not the only one here that loves that sweet brown nectar.
Here in Houston a whiskey bar called Reserve 101 had their 10 year anniversary back in Jan. I got these 2 pours for $10 each. Yep, the one on the left is Glenfiddich 40. It was just cool to order it. At retail of $3,500 a bottle, I don't think I'll be tasting it again anytime soon. I actually preferred the 21 and that can be had for about $180.

Here's my dusty "collection". Yellow Rose is no longer a part of it.

Best TX whiskey I’ve had is Garrison Brothers. They make it from scratch using TX grown grains. It’s excellent but spendy. Definitely not made for mixing with cola or anything…just a couple drops of water or a couple ice cubes and sip to enjoy!I am on a made in Texas kick. Try Jacob Weldon whiskey distilled in Cleburne.
Everyonce in a while I buy some airplane bottles of different items to see if I will like a bourbon. I actually sampled some jefferson last time I was at spces. to me it was not worth the Price.I very seldom drink whiskey anymore. Last bottle of W.L. Weller Special Reserve, lasted me over ten years!
I stick with Weller, simply because it's known bourbon for me, that I have drank for many years, and I do enjoy it's flavor. So if and when I purchase a bottle, I am going to go for what I know I'll enjoy.
I would love to try out other bourbons for a difference in flavor and quality though. This thread is probably as close as I can get!
