Hi there! This is a question for forum members who like whisky (or whiskey, some write an 'e' and some don't for some reason), especially those from Kentucky or Tennessee since this thread is mainly going to be about American whiskey like Bourbon and Tennessee whiskey. This is not about other whiskey like Scotch or Irish whiskey, and the next paragraph will tell you why. I know that most people out there who like whiskey prefer some single malt Scotch or Irish whiskey, and I usually agree, since I already found some of those which I could actually enjoy (I'm not a whiskey fan most of the time), but the only American whiskeys I have tasted are Johnny Walker, Jack Daniels, Jim Beam (and some really cheap ones of which I can't remember the names), and I didn't like them at all. But a few days ago I was at a friend's place, and he is also interested in whiskey and shares that opinion, so we wondered: Maybe there is some high quality Bourbon or Tennessee whiskey that could fit our taste? I never tasted one that I really liked, not a single one of the Bourbons. In fact I can't drink most of them at all. We decided to go ahead try some of them to find out which ones we like. We are going to buy some bottles of American whiskey in the next few weeks and then meet and get horribly drunk carefully try all of them. Those we don't like will still become a part of my friend's collection of whiskeys so nothing can't go wrong, can it? I already bought a bottle of Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon (25€ in a store here), which is going to be the first one on the list. I have no idea how it will taste but that is the fun in it I guess. So here's the question to you guys: Which Bourbons, Tennessee whiskeys and Ryes would you recommend so we can have a broad spectrum of tastes without buying thirty bottles of whiskeys? As soon as I have a list I consider big enough I will try to buy them somewhere. That may become my second problem since I guess some of them won't even get exported to Germany on a regular basis but if you know one I should really really try, put it on the list and I will see if I can find a way to get it. And please post a rough price per bottle if you have one. That's it! The whiskey must flow!
