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.

      I never want to move again. Almost every day for the last week has been rain and it's raining even now. It's hard to believe how much stuff two ppl can accumulate over 18 year's until you have to move it all under a time restriction.

      Thanks Spectrum/Time Warner for shutting off my services in the middle of the work day. fml. I scheduled the new account activation at my new house for this weekend and for the old account at the house I'm renting to terminate as of monday.. so what does Spectrum do? Shut my account down 1 day before the new account is activated and a full 4 days before it was scheduled to close. wtf. It took me 40 mins on the phone for them to reactivate my internet so I could finish working. wtf.

      With the summer simuldub season coming to a close, it played out like I predicted more or less. I'll wait a bit longer before I post my review. Pretty lackluster overall. But for me, the Fall Lineup is pretty stacked. Fairy Tail, SAO Season 3, and Black Clover continues which has become a lot more promising after this last arc I just watched... by far its strongest and most compelling. I watched the first episode of Double Decker! Doug & Kirill which was entertaining, and SSSS.GRIDMAN seems to be a Pacific Rim clone. Overall a return to more action adventure series, and lighter on the fan service heavy series.

      The last two chapters of One Punch Man have been the best action/fight scenes I've seen in a manga in years. Flashy Flash's fight was epic and focused on speed and technique. Huge props to the artist for how he drew a speed battle in manga form. Very impressive.
