I drink all whiskey straight. Of course I don't drink everclear!!!
NCHooch's Carolina Bourbon, but sour mashed. Really hits a sweet spot after about 3 generations.
/for those who roll their own...
One of the only bourbons out there still made with non GMO corn, too.
But it was my favorite before almost all of the other distilleries switched to GMO.

We're taking this thread off topic though.
Back on track: Pendeltons 1910 Rye Whisky is amazing. It's a bit sweet, but just about as smooth as I've tasted.

BTW: Pendletons 1910 is Canadian Whiskey, but still delicious. I guess I fail at getting the thread back on topic.
You are right on with Old Weller. The 7 year old 105 proof is amazing quality for the price. Blanton's is good but I prefer Rock Creek for small batch quality at a good price. If someone is buying or giving me a gift, Bookers is fantastic.

Although the product generally meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon, the company disavows this classification and markets it simply as Tennessee whiskey rather than as Tennessee bourbon." Too many weird laws to keep them all straight. In my mind, a whiskey is a whisky is a whiskey, whether it be from Kentucky, Tennessee, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, or Japan.
As for real bourbons, I generally like Elijah Craig and Bulleit, although the best I ever had was a special edition bottle of Woodford Reserve - the master distiller came to my town's liquor store and was sampling several single barrel whiskeys. It was all the same batch, but aged in different barrels (all charred oak though - they all looked the same), and the differences between the barrels were amazing. Picked the barrel I liked the best and bought a bottle.
