Oh man! Maniac Mansion! So many vague memories of time spent playing that one...

On topic:

Kentucky Gentleman, $12.99 per 1.75L at the local Total Wine



I have never tasted it. Apparently, they don't sell anything under $12 a handle.

I respect them for that.

Best games ever. I miss me some Lucas Arts. X-wing and Tie Fighter took a ton of fapping time from me as a kid.

One of these days I will get brave and buy some stuff wiskey that is under 35 dollars. But I'm scared.

Any updates to this thread, Joe? Have you found the holy grail of cheap whiskey? I'm considering picking up a bottle tomorrow at my local ABC, and could use a good recommendation.

Well, my cross-country move rather complicated matters. Not only are cheap whiskey brands highly regional in nature, but the pricing structure of liquor is rather different here in the NY / NJ area which makes it hard to compare to west-coast liquor. I don't know what it is about the Atlantic coast, but you people who talk funny and accuse us Californians of being communists have the most draconian liquor laws...

The most recent purchase was a 1.75l plastic bottle of Heaven Hill black label, $22 at BuyRite Wines.




Heaven Hill is a huge distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky which produces a number of "knock-off" brands, such as Admiral Nelson's (Captain Morgan's) Spiced Rum, and so on. The Heaven Hill bourbon label is surprisingly un-horrible. It's a 10 year old blend which should theoretically taste like Evan Williams (same distillery) but which seems to have a somewhat bolder taste. I had earlier criticized Evan Williams as being somewhat bland (what a bourbon snob might call "smooth"), and Heaven Hill delivers a somewhat sharper initial bite which I find rather satisfying.

Ive noticed that the stores themselves are very different as well. In the Buffalo area of NY liquor stores are actual stores, but herein SC they are just a small room. They typically have a much smaller selection of the things I want.

I hate buying liquor on the east coast. It's such a pain in the ***, it's driving me to drink.

This is a "blended" whiskey, correct? I saw some Heaven Hill today at the store, but not the black label. I've had Kentucky Gentleman before, which I believe is 51% bourbon and 49% grain spirits (the technical minimum for it to be called bourbon) I don't remember liking it too much, but my dad seems to like it just fine, as it seems to be a staple at his house.

I picked up some of the Jim Beam white label mentioned earlier in this thread. While I haven't had the chance to sit and sip it yet, it works pretty well with coke.

This was my go-to whiskey for a while. Its very reasonably priced. I'd give it a shot if you haven't already.

You know, I don't think I have ever purchased a Canadian whiskey. I shall have to give that one a shot- it's certainly in the price range.

Canadian Mist is great for the price. My wife's grandpa used to exclusively drink Mist and Sprite.

This thread is starting to offend my dapper sensibilities. It's probably better if I retire to the wood-paneled sitting room.

I am about to get some sort of tequila thread started up in this bizznatch.

a) cheap silver for margs
b) cheap repo/anjeo for sippin'

current thinking is a) milagro or dos manos b) herradura anejo but we can discuss elsewhere.

No.

So don't put it in your whiskey.

I put ice in my beer all the time, particularly during daytime drinking excursions.

Edit: Not really all the time, but when heat is a factor or when doing some kind of physical activity.
