So, just finished off the bottle of bourbon my friends gave me for my birthday. It was superb.

Which brings me to this question: for you bourbon drinkers and other whisky or scotch lovers, what are your favorites? I like trying new stuff, and I don't often get to buy bottles because it's expensive and I am poor.

My recent favorites are Bulleit 10 year,

Glenmorangie 10 year (haven't tried the others yet, but will be soon, I hope)

Laphroaig 10 year,

And a local favorite, Catoctin Creek's Roundstone Rye.

I also like Catoctin Creek's pear and apricot brandies, their gin, and their white whisky. I also drink nearly anything put in front of me, excepting very cheap gins, vodka, and most flavored stuff because it tastes odd.

So, what should I try? Feel free to suggest cocktail ideas too if you are into that; I'd like to learn more about classic cocktails especially. Current favorite is a Sidecar made with Calvados.
