What's your opinion on JD vs Maker's?

Well, Dickel and Jack Daniel's both have different expressions, although all those expressions are made from the same mash using the same process (except for JD's Gentleman Jack).

Dickel has No. 8, No. 12, and the new Barrel Select. No. 12 is older than No. 8. The Barrel Select is reputedly very good, although I have not had it yet. No. 12 is okay but nothing to write home about. I have had No. 8 before, but not recently enough to write anything intelligible about it.

JD has black label No. 7, green label No. 7 (younger, or at least younger-tasting than black label), Gentleman Jack (charcoal filtered twice), and Single Barrel. I don't particularly care for black label No. 7. I've never had either Gentleman Jack or green label No. 7. Single Barrel can hold its own with any American whiskey at a similar price point. It's very good.

As far as bourbons go, I love the Pappy 15 and like the VWFR 12, WT Rare Breed, 1792 Ridgemont Reserve, Bulleit, Old Grand-Dad (both the 114 and the 100 proof), and several others that I've undoubtedly forgotten to mention.

Bulleit, marketing hokum aside, is interesting in that it is distilled at the Four Roses Distillery in Lawrenceburg (by contract for Diageo) and as such is the only widely-available Four Roses bourbon in the US today. It also has the highest rye content of any bourbon being currently produced.

I never could warm to the AH Hirsch (I only ever had the 16) -- it tasted too much like pine resin to me.

Jefferson Reserve. Its along the lines of Woodford however much smoother and i tend to sip is clean just like i do scotch. no ice, no water, just bourbon and air like the good lord intended.

I love Macallan, but I'd say you're stretching the definition of "Tennessee whiskey" -- or "bourbon" -- pretty damn far.

Bourbons:






All good stuff. The Black Maple Hill folks also make a rye whiskey that's very enjoyable for a slight change of taste.

I didn`t know they were talking about just TENN whisky. I thought it was a top TEN list

As always, Stax, I admire your taste. Have you tried their rye?

Yes! My favorite. Impossible to find around Boston. Usually drink Maker's or Woodford to pass the time in between bottles.
