I prefer Old Crow (went through this earlier in this thread), because it
costs half the price of Jack & tastes about the same. Never a mixer or
ice. Make mine a double, or if I'm in too much of a hurry to wait for
another double, make it a quadruple. I don't even need to dirty a glass
.... I'm uncouth enough to drink straight from my bottle.
Crown Royal is not bad, but my favorite thing about Crown is the purple
bags to use for my snake fanout & all my own personal adapters. I like
the mentioned whiskeys much more than Knob Creek and all the other "high
P.S. Old Crow was the best selling Bourbon for 100+ years before Jack
