Johnny Walker Green for sitting. Knob Creek if I'm pounding
I don't know. I'll ask my boss in the hospital that almost died from drinking whisky his whole life. I'll get back to you.
Scoth is the big leagues.
Maker's or Buffalo Trace.
And I don't give a fuck.
your boss sounds like a "gulper"
this is a "sippin" thread
You maybe right. Cigars and whisky for dinner dont take you to far.
Damn my diet of Scotch and Habanos was working fine
If I'm mixing, then jack daniels

[h=3]George Dickel: The Man and His Whisky[/h]Born 40 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, George A. Dickel had, by 1867, established himself as a successful Nashville merchant. That year, he visited Tullahoma with his wife, Augusta. Just three years later, Cascade Hollow became home to the Dickel Distillery.
George A. Dickel discovered that whisky made during the winter was smoother than whisky made in the summer. So, George Dickel is the only Tennessee whisky to chill the whisky before it goes into the charcoal mellow-ing vats. This filters out the oils and fatty acids inherent in most whisky products.
The creator of the finest sippin' whisky in the United States declared his whisky was the equal of the finest scotch. Consequently, in keeping with the Scotch whisky tradition, he dropped the "e" in "whiskey."
As business thrived, tragedy struck: in 1888, George Dickel fell from a horse, sustaining traumatic injuries that ultimately lead to his passing in 1894. By that time, according to "The Book of Classic American Whiskeys," his company was Tennessee's "oldest surviving business to have operated continuously under the same name."
I'm by no means a connoisseur, and I tend to be extremely skeptical of gimmicky labeling, but this is the best Whiskey I've had so far in my 47 years...
I like a variety of single malts, but I'd generally prefer a bottle of Bushmill's.
