    It can't be as good as Bulleit Rye.

    Yeah, we don't get much Canaaaayyyyyydian Royal Kilted Whiskey down this way. Crown Royal and LTD are the only two I can even name.

    Canadian whiskey?

    Anyway, I get my Bulleit at Trader Joe's for 20 bucks/ bottle. And their Rye is inferior to their standard Bourbon. I have a bottle of theirs in my Globe Decanter in my frou frou lawyer room.

    Maybe you just don't like Rye.

    Rye is good. Took me a while to acquire the taste, but its pretty much all I drink now.

    Crown Royal is disgusting. Why they make that shit is beyond me.

    Wisers, Canadian Club, Black Label.

    I honestly don't experiment beyond Gibson. No reason too.

    That's some vetting right there, but I can't find it anywhere around here. Ever tried Pendleton? Looks like that's about the most top-shelf offering I can get my hands on, and I wouldn't mind giving it a try based on the reviews so far.

    EDIT: Okay, found a few Canadian Club offerings listed as being at the local BevMo. Holy crap is that stuff inexpensive!

    I don't really drink Canadian Club. Honestly couldn't give you a good review.

    Black Label is okay, not as smooth as Gibson. Wisers has a lot of different kinds. My 2nd best choice. Pretty good price too.

    If I'm not drinking Gibsons, I usually stick to Jack or Jim, unless beer is around. I'm pretty fussy about what I drink.

    Yeah, BevMo won't even ship Gibson's here. So far my top three are Bulleit, Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve and Maker's 46. If I had to let it out for a top five, the last two would be Wild Turkey 101 and Old Grand Dad. And of course the list shifts around a bit depending on how I plan to go about the drinkin'.

    Yeah, they are. When it comes to other kinds of hooch, I have totally different favorites. Rum: Pyrat. Gin: Bombay Sapphire. I don't really have a favorite brand of vodka.

    Costco has their own brand of Vodka that is pretty good.
