Bourbon Whisky Tasting and Ranking Results... also Bourbon & Coke taste ratings

amen....the truth has been spoken, everyone take note. I too was (and still am to a degree) a makers mark follower, but I must say my latest go-to bourbon bottle is woodford reserve. Excellent, complex, smooth, yet strong enough that you can be sure its bad for ya!....I've received positive reactions from non-bourbon drinkers caught off guard by its great nose and my opinion, no true burboun tasting would be complete without woodford.

Best and worst on the Outer Banks

Oh man, the Apple "Uglies" are great at the Orange Blossom (right across from the hattaras lighthouse entrance). Howard's on Ocracoke was awful...wasn't even good as far as pub food is concerned, but good beer selection. And, the Weeping Radish in Monteo makes a good microbrew pint and lots of german grub for the money.
