Get your shaker out

Put in 5-6 ice cube
Shake in a little turbinado sugar
Splash a generous amount of Basil Hayden
Shake in orange and regular bitters
Just a quick squirt of cold water
Shake vigorously then pour in glass
Empty rocks into sink then pour back into shaker to get rest of sugar
Pour back into glass to bad day level and fade

He said it was really good and I should give it a try.

It was $30 for 750ml.

IT SUCKED!!!! Harsh, no depth, and not deserving of being labeled a "bourbon"

What I've Learned About Booze:

I can't tell the price difference in a bottle of red wine between $12 and $100. I either like it or I don't, and it has no bearing on the price.

White wine is more like $35-$100, for the same thing.

With Bourbon, however, price directly correlates to taste. Unless you're at a skanky sports bar - then just stick with the house whiskey and coke.

Rye whiskey is an acquired taste. Which I've acquired.

So is Scotch. Which I haven't acquired.

So...JW Black is pretty much the simple staple. Cheap, taste okay...blah, blah. Thought I'd try to step it up a notch and go with the double black.

Had I had better friends on this board, I would have been warned of the fire on the barn door-water run off taste. Needless...not what I expected, but need to give it the traditional 3 times before I make my decision.

It is rumored to have more of the Islay influence, so now I'm gonna have to try it, but if you don't like smokey peat, stick w/ the regular JW Black (but might want to try Ballantines - IMHO way better than most blended and reasonably priced, so it is my 'time to get drunk' go-to).

I can give it a go...

I'd compare this JW to a lighter version of the Laphroaig I have on my bar. It's getting better every glass

Still no standard GJ bottle at my local packie, so it's the 1792 again. Not that that is a bad thing. Very tasty bottling. I've been traveling the last week and only drinking beer, so I'm happy to be back to bourbon tonight.

I overdid it just a tad last night watching the Sox game. Felt like crap this morning. The 1792 is a bit stronger than my usual GJ. I need to remember that.

Lighter note - always good to see who the top 10 alkies are on our site...

Congrats to all those who made the list

Those wanting to be on the list, need to step up your game some.
