    Bourbon (American) is best for me, back then, everybody in my family drank wine with an occasional beer on a hot day or cognac for special occasions. Certain un-named bourbons have more appeal to me than Jim Beam.

    Favorite Great-Uncle, frostbite at Bastone and again at Chosin, 2 tours republic of Vietnam was set on Jim Beam. Said it was the only consistent bourbon he found everywhere he was stationed.

    I toast his memory regularly with a touch.

    Buffalo Trace? Thought that should be called Buffalo Wallow. . .

    I am not sure of their profit per barrel either but I think that taxes make up the largest portion of the cost of a retail bottle of liquor. Back in the day (1970-71) liquor sold on military bases, which was tax free, at the package store, was very cheap. I remember paying less than $5.00 a liter for Johnny Walker and a liter of Seagrams 7 was $2.10. Same story with gasoline at the pump.

    Update: ExxonMobil is now reporting that for its retail gasoline operations in the U.S., it made an average profit of 7 cents per gallon during the first quarter of 2011.

    I’ll bet it’s the Russians trying to boost Vodka sales. Can’t trust those Russians, anywhere. I know! I’m half Russian!:D My wife will tell you how devious and sneaky I am!:eek:

    Diesel is a bi product of gasoline, wondering how much of that is profit.. Probably be cheaper if they didn't need to spend millions on lobbying also.

    Try the Rare Breed by Wild Turkey; very smooth, but watch out for the velvet-hammer effect:D.

    If you are not fond of Buffalo Trace, be sure to try their Blanton’s, or the Old Rip Van Winkle. Of course, the Pappy Van Winkle line has now become the Boutique Bourbon to have around to impress your mates. Too rich for my budget.

    I believe this is the Rickhouse owned by 1792 Bourbon in Bardstown, KY, half of it (as you can see) came down first and a couple of weeks later, the other half failed as well.
    I can’t recall where the second Rickhouse was located.

    Same here, Pappy is typically on a lottery system at outlets here with lines forming, well before sunrise just to get a ticket for a chance to spend $400 on a bottle.
    It’s a Secondary Market driven by greed as most of those bottles will wind up on line for $2,500+.

    Yes, the Weller 12 yr Old is a very good selection, as is the Antique.

    I always try to stop in at the liquor barn/world in Danville on my way to Delta, but I’m acutely aware of the additional “sin tax” they add to the sales tax there. They do tend to have some interesting varieties, however, not seen elsewhere.

    Lots of new Distilleries here in KY get their start by making Vodka, Jeptha Creed here in Shelby Co., has a broad selection of flavored and plain vodkas, as well as fruit flavored “shine” that gave them an income while their “Bloody Butcher” recipe was “sleeping in the wood”.

    I do like Buffalo Trace, Beam isn't bad for what it is but I find it to be watered down and flat.. I like Bourbon, Irish whiskey and some scotch.. I don't really go for super Smokey peeted Scotch.. Redbreast 12 and Monkey Shoulder is something I keep on hand outside of bourbon.

    If this was an oil refinery the price of gasoline would be going up. What about the price of Jim Beam?
