Bourbon is a magical liquid. It's a true cure for the common cold, it cures tooth aches, and it helps prevent terminal aliments such as heart disease and stroke. It marinades ribs and steaks and can create various desserts. It also tastes good straight and can be enjoyed mixed in several ways.

I recently came across this bourbon in the past couple months. It's very woody and dry. Its a little harsher to drink straight than other bourbons, but its distinct taste puts it at 5, knocking off Jim Beam Dark which would have originally been in this spot. It goes well with Cola or Sprite.

Maker's Mark is where I started with bourbon. Its sweet and smokey. When not drinking, it makes an excellent sweet meat marinade. If you're looking to try something new from your usual Jack or Crown, Maker's is definitely a great choice. It goes great with Cola, Dr. Pepper, and just straight up.

Gentleman Jack is an upgrade over your standard Jack Daniels. Its smoother and noticeably richer. It will empty your wallet a little more, but for a classy occasion its the right choice. It goes wonderfully with Sprite, Cola, and Dr. Pepper... and of course straight

Southern Comfort is unlike any bourbon out there. That's probably why you won't find it near the other bourbons at your liquor store. At least most places I've been to, it has its own little section. What is different about SoCo is its very evident caramel taste. Probably the most easy bourbon to drink straight, it goes very well with just about anything. Sprite, Cola, Dr. Pepper, and Ginger Ale are my recommendations. It comes in 80 proof and 100 proof variations. There is little to no price difference in the two, so you might as well go with the 100.

The king of all bourbon. I rave about this whiskey more than any other alcohol out there. This is the best stuff out of anything in my opinion. Made by the Jim Beam distiller, Booker's is their private stash made public. The barrels that are stored in the middle of the warehouse for equal humidity on all sides as it ages. It is the only UNFILTERED bourbon on the market. That's right, it goes straight from the barrel into the bottle, how nature intended it to be. It ranges from 120-128 proof. Its very strong and potent, and yet very smooth at the same time. It really does have the best taste, but it will run you around $80. Definitely a special occasion product. If you can't bare it straight. Sprite, Cola, and Ginger Ale is the way to go with this one.

I've always wanted to try that Bookers, but damn its too costly. :P

Is Crown Royal comparable to Gentleman Jack? To me, Crown is easier to drink straight than Maker's Mark, but it doesn't seem to mix as well as regular Jack or Maker's Mark does. So I was wondering if Gentleman Jack would be the better mixer.

Maker's Mark in gingerale is good, sprite is better, but I've noticed I'm preferring Jack Daniel's and coke more than any other bourbon mix lately.

If I got that bookers, I'd probably feel like I was disgracing it by mixing it with anything. But then again, it would probably kill me if I drank it straight. X'D

LOL, its like someone kicked you in the sinuses straight. Its best with Ginger Ale. You just have to be careful because it will knock you on your ass so fast. X'D Booker's is the best ever!

GJ is good straight and mixed. but Soco is the best straight in my opinion. Crown has always been overrated to me... I dunnno :\

I bought a bottle of crown almost a year ago because a friend of mine highly recommended it to me... I still have half the bottle and I've been thru two small bottles of JD and most of a huge bottle of maker's mark since then. Crown just doesn't do it for me. I'll have to try that Soco next time. I'm going to give maker's mark a break for a while and stick with JD, but I'll pick up a bottle of the Soco to try it out.

      Fairy Tail is officially ending. Only 10 chapters left. This writer turned this series into garbage plot lines. I'm genuinely pissed at this manga now. Not because favorite characters are being killed off like most manga/animes do at the end.. Not that any main characters at this point are in any real threat of dying since every character seems to be immortal. Being mad like that would be a good thing since it means I feel for the characters and the overall plot.. But instead I'm mad because the writer threw so many random plot lines into the story over the last year that its become laughable like a bad soap opera. All long term plot lines are pretty much negated and last minute characters and plot lines now resolve everything.. something that was just revealed 10 chapters ago now solves half the danger to the planet that has been build up as an ultimate power throughout the last 400 chapters. wtf.
      I'll compare this to DBZ. Imagine all that build up how powerful Freeza was.. but then right before Goku is going to fight him, Krillin found some magic orb and then Bulma kicked it at Freeza and killed him. No big fight with Goku, no planet namek getting destroyed.. hell, Goku never even met Freeza. Thats the equivalent of what just happened. WTF.

      I did a minor upgrade to the site today, but a couple of themes are not running the most recent build so there might be a few issues with the text editors or some links not displaying everything 100% properly. If anyone notice any discrepancies, let me know.

      GW2 had a balance patch yesterday and my necro had 2 specific skills changed. Epidemic got nerfed, and plague form got turned into plaguelands. I tried them both out last night. In a small mob of enemies epi looks like it works about the same, but I need to test it out more thoroughly. I haven't used the plague form in over a year, but when I did use it, it was for pvp and wvw because it gave stability and basically guaranteed an un-interrupted enemy stomp. Now it is a completely different skill that makes a small aoe field that pulses massive conditions. When I used it on a mob, that mob melted faster than anything. Holy crap. But even with my traits set to reduce cool down on corruption skills, I can only use this skill every 80 seconds. This skill is only useful against large zergs of strong enemies and bosses. This skill was designed specifically for raid bosses imo. Its aoe is too small and the cool down too high for normal pve. I'd rather keep flesh golem on for the cc against champs and legendary enemies. Sure plaguelands can pump out the damage, but the utility of flesh golem cc is too good to give up for me.

      It feels like I've had constant appointments for the last month that keep eating into all my free time. Even this week I have at least 3 places to go during work hours causing me to make up time during my free time. x_x Tomorrow I need to go back to the tire shop. I got my summer tires mounted and balanced on thursday and by late saturday afternoon I'm getting a helicopter kind of air sound from my front left tire. "whoosh whoosh whoosh". I thought I had a bearing going, but I got my breaker bar out and sure enough the lug nuts weren't tight. wtf. First time I've ever had this tire place screw up a mounting before and I've been going to them for over 14 years. I tightened them up but I'm still getting a bit of sound while driving. I don't feel like hauling my 3 ton jack out of my basement so I"ll go back there tomorrow. I'm pretty certain they're going to have to lift the car and re-center the tire.
