I'm a scotch guy, but I am excited over this double oaked. Maybe it will make a bourbon guy? Doubt it, but doesn't mean I can't like one or two bourbons.

Nothing wrong with that. I tried to develop a taste for scotch many moons ago, and gave up after about 3 months................ just couldn't cultivate the taste for it

Were you trying single malt, blended, or both?

Both. At the end of the day it just had too much of a "wood" taste for me, unlike bourbon, where I can actually taste the nuances of the various brands.

Right now as a daily drinker I have been drinking Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage, aged 10 years, about $25 a bottle. Evan Willams has traditionally been a lower end bourbon. Toward the end of the 90's they decided to make a higher end single barrel variety and the result turned out to be very respectible. It has been reviewed very favorably by quite a few aficionado rags

I'm hit or miss. For example, I was poured some blue label for my going away party and enjoyed it. But I had some glenlivet at the airport bar a couple days later and found it dreadful.

Everything from Dewars to Macallan to johnny walker. Glenlivet is good too.

There is also a place around here that makes a sorghum whiskey that is amazing. place is called AEppelTreow winery. the whiskey is called brown dog.

Looks like they also make an apple brandy. That sounds up my alley.

Some of the ingredients and culture in Southern wisconsin, Northern Illinois combine to make amazing food and drink.

The two time world champion cheese is made here.

I was probably a little too entranced by that video ...

Too bad they only ship to the lower 48
