My Poison

“What’s you poison?”  Outside of the movies, I’ve never actually heard this used.  :^)  However, my favorite would have to be Canadian Club.

A little history.  I am a former Mormon (Ex-Mo or apostate for those in the know).  I joined at 16, so that coupled with a mother who had a drinking problem, I was never very interested in alcohol.  Flash forward many years.  I left the church and it’s prohibitions and decided my mothers problems were not my problems.  So after some experimenting, I decided that Canadian Club was my favorite.  It is really smooth with a hint of sweetness that does not give me that reflux feeling some of the stronger whiskies do. 

I still try other whisky brands to see if there might be something I like or that compares.  My brother introduced me to Red Stag.  While it is ok, it if more for sipping occasionally.  I don’t care much for Crown Royal and I have tried many of their offerings like the regular, Black and Cask No.16.  Still, none compare.

  1. Have you tried Maker's Mark or Booker's? Technically they're both bourbons but they're really nice. I was introduced to Booker's many years ago. It's a beautifully crafted, single barrel bourbon that's unfiltered to it clouds up over ice. These two are a couple of my faves.

  2. I have tried JD Single Barrel (it was on sale for the price I usually pay for GJ). I have also tried Maker's Mark, Tangle Wood, Jameson and a couple single malt scotches. I will need to give Bulleit and Booker a go.
