    Booker's bourbon is aged between six and eight years and is bottled un-cut and un-filtered at its natural proof between 121 and 127. While it is not necessary to cut the bourbon with water, a splash or two of distilled water is recommended to unlock some of the flavor.

    Emily has a taste for scotch. I can't get it past my nose.

    For Bourbon, look here:

    http://www.smallbatch.com

    Booker's is really special, but as Rob pointed out it does it's work pretty quickly. Booker's is also strong -- not just in alcohol. It's a very richly flavored bourbon.

    The Basil Hyden is the most cut of the bunch, and it's my usual drink these days. Basil has the lightest feel in the mouth, and isn't so "oakey" while still giving you some changes in taste as you sip.

    Pairs perfectly with rare red meat.

    Knob.... I dunno. I never could get into it.

Break it out any time there are horses on TV or near your home for full effect.

    With the Jack, stick it in the back of the cabinet until winter. On a cold night, pour the jack in a sauce pan along with two sachets of mulling spices. Heat until the smell fills your kitchen and the volume reduces by at least 20%. Serve warm to hot with good company.
    You're clearly over-thinking this whole thing:

    Daily Drink - Dewars, Johnny, whatever (Maker's, Knob Creek et al if you're a bourbon drinker)

    Special Occasions - Oban, Caol Ila, Lagavulin or whatever your taste (O.K. - Woodford's, Bookers, et al if you're a bourbon drinker)

    Already-drunk-an-wanna-get-drunker - Cheap, hard stuff works just great. I always keep a bottle o' Jack and Wild Turkey 101 on hand for exactly this kind of occasion.

    No need to go stickin' herbs and fruit in it or heatin' the sh*t up. Just chooz the right elixir for the occasion...

    Well, there you go - I'm new to fire water. I for one blame the Bush administration.

    Still like Jack. Just plane old black bottle jack. nothing fancy, just a nice gentle burn all the way down. Bit on the sweet side.

    I went ahead and did a shot of the Johnny Walker (Red bottle). Strange taste. Dont like it as much. Reminds me of the way a new plastic storage bin smells if you leave it sealed and sitting in the sun.

    Of all things I like to drink my favorite remains diet coke. Monster (in the blue can) is a close second.

    Vodka comes off like rubbing alcohol to me. Mixed with orange juice it is tolerable. But if I have to mix it in order to drink it why not just PGA and knock my @ss out in the first short?

    Jake,

    Try Ciroc. It's made from grapes, not grain, so it has a very different character.

    I recommend it with just rocks and a splash of water.

    Another trick with vodka is vanilla. Steep whole beans in something nuetral like kettle one for a couple of weeks. Serve up with a sugar rim. My wife likes these floated on a shot of chambord. Very striking looking drink.

    As usual I am completely missing some. Nancy boy bowl rider is waxing lyrical about all these frufru drinks and Miykl doesn't even blink. I generally prefer not to drink and he threatens to pull my man card? now is he the one who left his pants in Jim's room? I can't keep track of who did what.

    As for the secret of vanilla extract - Amazon. They deliver it. Fing around in the kitchen so you can be all snobbing and S and tell your yuppy friend how you yourself climbed the tree and picked th pods yourself to make the vanilla in the Creme Brulee....Well...might as start taking the estrogen pills and do a tuck back in preperation for the surgery. screw the man card.

    I think Jake is just messing with you guys and it's going over your head. I find his succint observations quite humorous.

    I believe we have a new act on the board!

    Hey, I'll stick to Basil Hyden. But, I know how to pour a drink or two with a broader appeal.

    So my 25 year old Hoover upright is going to have to be replaced. It's getting more and more difficult to find belts and bags for it. Any suggestions for a replacement?
