It's not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm a fan of Monkey Shoulder.

It doesn't break the bank, it's smooth, and it's easy to sip on.

If I'm looking to break the bank I'll grab some Blue Label.. but those trips to the liquor store are pretty few and far between.

One of my buddies was asking me about scotch the other weekend and it was funny. Conversation went like this:

Him: "So, what's the best type of scotch that you'd recommend?"
Me: "That's tough to say, what do you look for in a scotch?"
Him: "I don't know, I usually just mix it with Pepsi"
Me: "Ok then, buy the largest and cheapest bottle possible..."
Him: "What about the taste? I want something that tastes good."
Me: "If you don't like the taste, just add more Pepsi."

I'm not a rye drinker.  But there's a newer local rye producer here in Maryland. 

Sagamore Spirits is supposed to be really good.  That's the guy from Under Armor.

Larceny Bourbon...

It's a Heaven Hill (my favorite Bourbon distillery) and it's worth the price  :-\. (Others are better than their price from Heaven Hill.)

It's good. Missing some oil (my preference) but if you like a rich, sweet bourbon that makes you think of ? toasted nuts and honestly grapenuts with maybe a little tropical fruit it's a solid choice. Wheat is obvious.

I can't help but think this is conforming to the market. Cheap grain bill and sweet. And these guys make Elijah Craig 12 year... One of my top ten whiskies. And Evan Williams Single Barrel which is a great value if you like charred toast.

What can I say. Worth the price.
Livin on a thin line, tell me now what are we supposed to do?
