1 JimmyR 1 week ago I'm a huge fan of Scottish single malts. I love the Islay malts, Talisker from Skye, the malts of Jura and I'm intrigued by some of the Highland malts I've tried. Which is kind of nuts because I live on the other side of the planet. When I was in New York last month I tried a couple of Bourbons in bars - one was Buffalo Trace which i quite enjoyed neat and on the rocks because it reminded me of sneaking booze into school dances.I haven't tried many US whiskeys - here US whiskey has always been Jack Daniels and Jim Beam, neither of which impressed me much. I was once given a bottle of Woodford Reserve Rye which was nasty! It just tasted like I was sucking on a piece of green oak. Maybe it was the flavour of rye coming through - I have always detested rye bread or anything made from rye,So what would you Americans recommend to someone who wants to find some great, sublime American whiskey? Buffalo Trace is fun - I bought a bottle here and I like it - but it's not particularly complex or sophisticated. It's easy drinking and possibly sweeter than I usually like. Any suggestions?I'm planning to try Wild Turkey Longbranch next. Is Gentleman Jack worth trying? I was also given a bottle of Maker's Mark once and it was too sweet for me.
