I've been on a Bourbon kick lately and I'm courious which Bourbons are popular with the OG.  My local liquor store had  Maker's on sale for $40 for a 1.75 bottle, so I've been alternating between that and Buffalo Trace.  What is everyone else drinking?

Wild Turkey

That 101 proof? 

About 12 years ago I woke up in a pool of puke from Wild Turkey 101 on a Sunday morning. Worst hungover feeling ever. The last thing I remember from the night before is fingering some random latina with bigass titties at a dive bar in the Inland Empire that sold 50 cent beers. My cousin and just one other dude got me back to his house somehow (yes I was that guy that night, oh well).

No one remembers what happened to that hoodrat I finger blasted, but the next day when I woke up my right hand smelled like I fisted a dead homeless gypsy.

Anyways, I steam vac'd my mistake thanks to my cousin's steamer and then volunteered to go get some 40's to start that sunday off right. I got back with the 40's and some orange juice and literally used my stink fingers as swizzle sticks to mix up some brass monkeys. It started off as a joke but then everyone just kept having me mix their drinks with my nasty ass fingers. No one gave a shit, that's how hungover we were. It makes me sick to my stomach even thinking about it these days.

Blanton's.

But the people at Blanton's also make a cheaper bourbon that is also amazing. Its called Eagle Rare and IF you can find it, buy it. Its amazing. Goes for about $34 a bottle. Next to Blanton's, its probably the second smoothest bourbon I've had.

Thanks, I think I saw Eagle Rare at my grocery store.

 

I typically bounce around between bourbons.  I’m pretty cheap so only buy $50+ bottles every so often.  Those I sip those with a couple of ice cubes.  Basil Hayden, Stranahan, Four Roses Single.  I can never find Blanton’s.  Usually I am mixing in Coke with Jack, Jim Beam Black, Buffalo Trace, etc.  That is my winter drink.  Turkey 101 and 7up for Thanksgiving.

woodford reserve as by recent go to. My brother works for a firm where one of the senior partners bought a bottle of buffalo trace, and auctioned the bottles off for charity. He bought one for me and I'm enjoying that as well.

I love Buffalo trace. Plus you can never go wrong with a Bulliet Rye. Shit is cheaper than hell, like $25.00 a bottle, and it just rocks hard.
