    I’m kind of a whiskey novice but it’s my drink of choice. I started out on Dewar’s because it’s what my Dad drinks, but now I like Jack Daniels and Makers Mark. I’ve had a little exposure to single cask whiskeys and would love to have the chance to try some others.

    Crown Royal is hands down my favorite whiskey, but I’m no expert. Really I want to win these tickets to surprise by husband. He has enjoyed all of the whiskeys made by the event sponsors, along with several others. I would love to give this to him as an early Christmas gift and use the event to learn a bit more about the spirit.

    I fell in love with Maker’s Mark years ago at a wedding when I decided to switch from Rum. Since then, I have loved whiskey! Whiskey/Diet is my cocktail of choice.

    After a long spell of avoiding brown liquor (forced by memories of handles of Beam on dirt roads), I started to come back to it based on two things: my love of Southern foods and my lack of disposable income to direct towards alcohol. I’ve been mostly a beer and wine drinker over the last few years, but $25 can either get an interesting bottle of wine or two, a few six packs of beer, or a bottle of something like Elmer T. Lee. I still have the beer and wine at home, but more and more frequently I just pour a couple of ounces of bourbon or rye instead.

    You might say I was raised on Jim Beam. But not in a child abuse, underage drinking kind of way. It was my grandpa’s drink of choice. He always drank his straight in the same brown “Tennesse Mud” coffee cup, whenever he came to visit. Oddly enough, his name is Jim too, and he is the reason I majored in history and the reason I started drinking Jim Beam. I have since moved on to other whiskeys. Jameson, Bulleit Bourbon, etc. But it’s like having a nice visit with my grandpa when I sit down with some Jim Beam.

    I remember being on a work trip and trying Johnny Walker Blue on the rocks because it was supposed to be good. And to be honest, I didn’t really like it. Many work trips later as well as frequent trips to our great local liquor stores in St. Louis and I honestly don’t know how I ever was not a whiskey fan. I don’t have a favorite, but that’s only because there are so many amazing ones out there to try and explore. Bourbon. Rye. Scotch. Peated. Cask strength. Oak. Sherry. Pappy. Sazerac. Glenmorangie. Why limit yourself to just one?

    I started drinking whiskey in college thanks to my best friend who is basically whiskey personified. I’ve branched out from our college jack-and-cokes and love my whiskey straight up, on the rocks, or in a well made old fashioned now. My current favorite is Bulleit Bourbon. I’d love to attend Whiskey in the Winter and get to try even more of what’s out there!

    I’m a whiskey novice, with Woodford Reserve my current favorite. I’d like to win more for a friend of mine who would be in heaven to get a chance to attend this.

    For Christmas last year, my wife bought me a bottle of Pig’s Nose. Having only had bourbon in the house for the previous few years, I didn’t think I’d like it. I did. I’ve been exploring scotch now for the past year. Glenmorangie, Macallan. Currently, I have a bottle of Lagavulin 16 in the cabinet. As in life, differences make everything more interesting. I’m enjoying learning the differences among varieties of malts, and different kinds of whiskies.
