If there's another Irish whisky besides jameson, I don't want to know about it.

I just bought a bottle of Jameson, but have only had a sip (after having finished a bottle of Bushmill's), so I can't really comment.

I guess I'm interested in what people like about Knob Creek vs Maker's.

And, yes, we can certainly make this a generic whiskey thread.

I found Knob Creek to be less sweet and a little harsher than makers. maybe it is just a little stronger. I don't know if it is the right term, but maybe a little smokier - to me, a little more similar to scotch. still good, but not as much to my taste.

Agreed. That said, I've only had KC a couple of times, so I need to try it a few more times before I can make a final judgment regarding whether I like it. It is definitely smokier and more peppery than MM. As pointed out above, it is a Jim Beam product, as are Booker's and Baker's. Jim Beam actually has a good reputation and track record with "premium" bourbons.

Maker's Mark is like a slow, warm blowjob. Comforting, reasurring and you get a chance to kick back and enjoy it. Some of the other bourbon's are quick and strong, the finish is not the same. There are other smoother, richer bourbons, as there are other smoother, richer blows, but the price, accessibilty and depth give Makers a strong edge. I not only drink it, I also use it as a marinade for baby back ribs. I leave the ribs in about 1/3 bottle of Makers for a whole day. Amazing.

peppery - yeah, that is the word I was looking for.

I found myself ordering it at bars when I knew I was going to have a couple in a hurry and wanted something that didn't make me vomit in my own mouth. It goes down smooth straight with a nice spicy afterglow. Makers, on the other hand, is my go-to if I'm looking to enjoy a few glasses in a few hours. I never forgave my two buddies for ordering mutliple appletini's (oddly, these friends were hetero) in a Vegas bar while I drank a fishbowl of Makers on the rocks.

Yeah, you can't stay hetero for long if you're drinking appletini's.

Good point!

Whodini, how sure are you that these guys were guys? Don't need any details, just a probability. 90%? 80%?

That's quite the testimonial Ed!

I prefer Maker's to Knob Creek and Woodford Reserve to either.

Beyond that is more than I'm currently willing to spend on a bourbon. But eventually I want to try some of the "small batch" ones.

Like getting one or like giving one? (a crucial distinction)

Besides, I'd think that Knob Creek would give a better, oh, never mind...

I'm partial to being on the receiving end but to each his own....

I myself am partial to my Jameson. Double, neat please. As per Bourbon, my tastes depend on the money in my pocket. A good reasonably priced Bourbon is Bulleit Bourbon. I really like it with a small splash of ginger ale. http://www.bulleitbourbon.com/. If i have money, then it really depends on the mood. I never reallylike the sweet bourbons like MM. Hmmm maybe a Blanton's?
