  • Uncle Bubba

    The 'woody taste' in bourbon whiskey (Jim Beam) and sour mash whiskey (Jack Daniels) comes from being aged in oak barrels and the coloring... sorry, colouring... is because the insi of the barrels are charred before they are filled for aging. All of that aside, give me a glass of good, old fashioned Tullamore Dew and I'll be as happy as a pig in shit... sorry, shite. LOL 😎

    As an American and a whiskey lover, I will say that America does whiskey generally better. However, for the top priced stuff the scots have us beat, I am personally a huge glenlivet fan for when I really want to enjoy the brewers art.

    Honestly theres only one good whisky in here so this only means americans have better bad whisky. But theres amazing whiskies made in both countries and in the end its all about personal prefrences in the examples here i think burbon won because its generaly sweeter so more people will like it more. I feel like if the whiskies where of a higher quality the score would be pretty even. And since these people arent used to drinking whisky it would be best to serve them the whisky with ice to soften the impact.

    Odd that {spoiler} a group of presumably seasoned Irish drinkers preferred the American stuff by a three-to-one margin over the Scotch. It's like us choosing Korean beer over Molson and Moosehead.

    Jim beam bottom shelf, red label, jack, the only decent one was bullitt and it was the favorite. Should have given the johnnie walker green, the glenlivet 12, and monkey shoulder (mid self offerings) vs knob creek single barrel, woodford reserve double oak, and maker's mark cask strength. Substitute as you will
