I think that stuff is terrible. But then again, I think Jack is terrible too. If i'm going to get whiskey in that price range it's going to be Johnnie Red. I know it's different but that's the choice I'd make.
It's a very nice wheated Bourbon, but will probably be very hard to find and quite expensive this time of year. My favorite wheated is the antique collection William Larue Weller, but it's equally hard to find.What's the deal with this stuff?
I've seen a lot of hype about it and how complex it is. I'm no bourbon guy, but this seems to be worth it. Might need to find a bottle to split with my suitemates at school to try it out.
When I do come around to vodka its a shot of this...ice cold straight from the freezer,
None of that luke-warm bar top stuff or any of that flavored crap. I once was accidentally served a shot of room temperature Cotton Candy Pinnacle Vodka at a bar and it was one of the most vile things I've ever had. That said, I did take shots of Absolut Peppar with my dad once - that was fun.
I like the flavoured Absolut stuff, most of it at least. But cheap flavoured vodka is awful. As is cheap Vodka in general. The Standard you postet is like the starting point for decent vodka when you are in a (alcohol)store ... anything below pricewise is crap, do not go "sub-standard"
