So I love me some beer, but lately I've been trying to expand my whiskey pallet. My go-to in bars as always been a jack & coke, or a whiskey ginger (usually bottom shelf), but I've been trying to drink my whiskey straight up on the rocks. I started with Jack, and then moved to Jameson for a while, but last night at the liquor store I decided to try Russel's Reserve. It was delicious, so I come to you all asking for other whiskey suggestions. I'd also like to know what to look for when drinking whiskey (flavors, body, etc). Keep in mind my income is limited so I can't spend a ton, but I'm definitely interested to hear suggestions to try.
And since my new job doesn't start until Monday, here's to my new whiskey knowledge :pours some Russels:
You can't spread peanut butter on a porpoise.
