Scotch, neat.

Or most any whisky. I tend to stay away from anything overly peaty. And when I can get it, Japanese whisky is where it’s at! (Yamazaki 12, Hibiki 17 etc).

Local Kroger sells some limited single barrel Knob Creek that is top notch. Definitely good sipping stuff, buy the cheaper for diluting with mixers. My wife's radio station gives Christmas gifts of Woodford Reserve to their advertisers, usually a couple bottles left over...how sad...ha ha. Blanton'$ excellent

I don't have it often, but I judge on its smoothness, no heavy peat or too earthy but it fills with a woody flavor like one would have walking into a grandfather's well-lit wood working shop. I currently have a bottle of Glenlivet Master Distiller's Reserve. Previous bottle is Glenmorange and it is around 35 years aged now. I enjoy Tennesee whiskey when away from home.

I do enjoy some scotch. Makes for a great overflow bottle too.



I get some funny reactions to this particular mod at shows. I always say it was more fun to empty than it was to install, which is true.

The anvil of reality.

Bourbon for me too. Woodford is my old standby and is very hard to beat for the price. I also like Makers, Blantons, and Whistle Pig is awesome (but pricey).

I see a hot rod round these parts and he's using a whisky bottle for an overflow. Always thought it was funny.

I've been dabbling in bourbon as of late. So many to choose from that it's easy to find something that you won't like which is why I watch YouTube reviews to help me stay within my "zone".



Some good brands that I like are Monkey Shoulder, Buffalo Trace, and of course, Woodford Reserve.

For me, it's usually half a pot of coffee in my big Kansas State mug. For some reason, I am immune to most of the effects of caffeine, and instead of making me shaky, wired, and boosting my heart rate, it helps me relax.


I don't drink too often, but out of all the alcoholic beverages out there, my Kryptonite is Woodchuck Amber hard cider. I would never turn down a pint or bottle of that!

Yeah it’s an old hot rodder’s trick that I stole. Pretty fun.

I like Bourbon, but I while doing some "sampling" at a place called "The Whiskey Jar" while on vacation in Charlottesville I discovered I also like Rye Whiskey. A little harsher bite to it that I like.

The Scotch I mentioned was a very high end bottle of Johnnie Walker (ex-FIL was over Guinness - Asia)...again, I've just never acquired a taste for it.

I like craft beers, myself. AND some red and white wines and vodkas.

If its not beer then its whiskey - Johnny Walker/Dewars or if I have an opportunity then Glenlivet or Glenfidich or right now I'm slumming drinking Jameson ...

Got my hands on the wheel, foot to the pedal, gonna drive this car till the tires turn to metal - gonna sleep when I'm dead and laugh at the devil..
