    I will take any suggestions

    Fortaleza, Herradura, and Corazon are three brands I've enjoyed recently.

    The Fortaleza anejo is expensive. The reposado is a little more reasonable.

    corralejo anejo is very good.....and can be had for a decent price


    corzo is a newer brand.....a little to clean & refined, but drinks very well

    I don't consider it "Top shelf", but I really like Milagro Silver. It's got kind of a spicy taste that I really like.

    George, I picked up a bottle of 10 year Ardbeg. . . excellent choice.

    In fact, I doubt that bottle will survive beyond today.

    Well that certainly would not be setting a precedence.

    I have never been a fan of drinking rye neat, until now. For anyone who appreciates a whiskey/whisky with an appealing nose, great taste and mouth feel and a good finish I recommend trying "Bulleit (95) Rye". This is amazing stuff at a reasonable price, light years ahead of their serviceable but far from great bourbon. Adding anything, even ice or water seems like sacrilege.

    If you've never had a good rye you really should try this.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    I always thought the Bulleit Bourbon was pretty good and at one time it was economical. It has jumped up to Jack Prices due to popularity. I've yet to find anything that I'd rather sip than Jack. But I'm just a TN hillbilly.
