I got this when I tried your link:

We can't find "www.straightbourbon .com"

Notice the difference here:

www.straightbourbon .com

An extra space between the 'n' in 'bourbon' and the dot (.) in '.com',,,

That is all it takes to throw the whole world off...

Scarey, no???

Try the 'coloured' link below...

Cliff and I toured their distillary several years ago; it was an interesting tour, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's passing through that part of the country. They let us stick our finger in the huge vat of sour mash and taste it... take my word for it, at least at THAT stage, it's horrible. Of course, I never did care for whiskey anyhow.

Agree with Salmoneye on MM. It's ok, nothing to write home about. For sipping straight, my personal favorite is Dickel's. They used to have an add that said "Water's for washing, Dickel's for drinking."

""Water's for washing, Dickel's for drinking.""

That is way nicer than the 'quote' that is sometimes attributed to W.C. Fields...

Yes, it is a bit more polite!

I always liked the one attributed to Frank Sinatra. "I feel sorry for people that don't drink. When they wake up in the morning that is as good as they are going to feel all day."

Makers Mark is OK...Bookers is good too...Neither is the 'best' IMHO...

I have been known to drink some Wild Turkey in my time...First time I ordered some at a bar and they gave me 80 proof, I was not happy...The 'bartender' (for lack of a better term) insisted that there was no such thing as '101' Turkey...Lucky it wasn't the old west and I was not wearing a six-shooter...That is blasphemy in some circles...

If you want an OK 'cheap' whiskey...Ezra Brooks...Even has a cork, so it MUST be good ;-)

Stay away from Evan Williams though...That stuff will run your car or strip paint, but that is just about where you should leave it...

Jack Daniels is HIGHLY over-rated in peoples minds (and it technically is a 'Tennessee' whiskey anyway; not a true bourbon)...That and Jim Beam are the standards for people that don't know any better...

Some of the best come from Van Winkle...

Sorry you asked?...I could go on if you wish LOL

Talk about being over rated....just how much more should a person pay for a blue bag with gold trim and a bottle of Canadian whiskey inside. (yeah I know, the subject was Makers Mark).
I agree, Jack Daniels and Jim Beam are over-rated but they are American icons, especially in the south. I'll take Beam over Jack any day.
My least favorite is Ancient Age.

I never was much for 'Canadian'...

My paternal Grandfather on the other hand was a famous drinker of Fleischmann's Canadian Blended 100 proof (which they don't even make anymore since Fleischmann's was sold to Barton)...He always referred to it as 'Blue Sunoco'...

Dang...I am old enough to remember Blue Sunoco...

made in loretto ky. about 15 miles from here (marion County Ky). My brother in law lives next to it and my wifes family feeds "slop" from their place. Byproduct of wiskey production.

It is funny you ask this... I waitress and last night I had someone order a Makers Mark Manhatten.. I didn't even know we had it at the bar, this is the FIRST TIME I had a customer ask for it. It is a top shelf whiskey.. I didn't try it, but it smelled very good.. and strong!!

I never spent much time worrying about labels. That paper pretty much all tastes the same. 'Bout like what's inside. Not fit for human consumption. Think about it.
