Blanton's is great. Aside from the real good shit like that I usually shy away from the Bourbon and rye and head more towards the Irish whiskeys because I'm a bit of a sissy. Anyone ever try Knappogue Castle? It's a single malt Irish Whiskey. I'm a big fan. They're a smaller distillery and they vary slightly by vintage (they have a date on the bottle like wine). I get their cheaper bottle (aged 10 or 12 years) and it's worth looking for.

Other ones I'd recommend include: Alesmith X & Alesmith Wee Heavy, Lost Abbey Devotion & Lost Abbey Judgement Day, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, and perhaps my newest favorite:
Port Brewing's Hop 15.

The water "opens it up" and you'll get the full flavor. Don't feel like you need to stir or mix it or anything. Most super-complicated tasting note stuff is absolute horse manure, but the right amount of water in some whiskey can help.
But the real only rule of drinking whiskey/whiskey/scotch/bourbon/rye is...however the eff you like it is the proper way to drink it.
