Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve Scotch Single Malt (recommeded by Jay Gaston - oh so good!) Has a Rumish smooth flavor 

Price Point $35-$40


Rabbit Hole Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey  - Note: Rabbit Hole makes a lot of good products, including an excellent Sherry Finished Bourbon (Dareringer) but that's for another day...

Price Point $50

A little different...Corsairs Bourbon (Insane in the Grain is good), Hudsons Baby Bourbon (very sweet but tasty) Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey, The Nikka Coffey Grain - Japanese, Three Ships Whiskey - South Africa. 

Now we know there is a lot of "likka" out there to taste and I have not tasted it all. This is a short list that will grow and change. Always go with what YOU like and enjoy. Feel free to mess around with recipes and create your own 

A nice bar set is worth the investment ($30-60). You don't need a bunch of fancy stuff unless that's your thing but a good bar set and some quality glasses will making your experience a little more enjoyable. Whiskey Snifters/Cognac Glasses and Rocks Glasses are highly recommended. A red Solo cup ain't half bad in a pinch. 

Please drink responsibly.
