    well i know when it comes to good/decent liquor theres just no beating top quality, but i can't afford top quality..... :(

    anyway i love Crown, Seagrams 7, generally any good blended whiskey hits the spot for me.

    i've been drinking this stuff called Classic 12 for a little while now and i like it pretty well. It is very similar to Crown with a bit of a vanilia'y' flavor to it which is not bad just a little different.

    anyway what is your drink of choice and what do you substitute for it when ya halfta? :ears:

    I think Knob Creek is the best damn bourbon in the world. When I can't drink that, I just drink good beer, like Budweiser and Michelob.

    Knob Creek is really popular among hillbillies who drink good stuff. It's like $32 for less than a fifth...but it's DAMN smooth

    Black Velvet... gotta love it... 8 bucks a bottle and it goes down smooth with coke, even if i had the money to buy something else i just wouldnt lol :wink1:

    Ive drank knobs a few times.... and i dont remember much other then reading the bottle before drinking it :bow:

    And when it comes to beer i rarely settle for anything else then budlight, but if i do, or if im to drunk to care... pbr or Old Mill.

    Alcoholllllll!!!

    I like Southern Comfort straight up!--but its not really a whiskey or bourbon I guess..it says "Liquor" or "Cordial" on the bottle(One guy I know calls it "Brake Fluid!)...I like most any Tennesee sippin whiskey--they all taste pretty close to me,especially after you have one or two shots!..Jack Daniels is pretty costly though,and I haven't tried all the different ones..in fact,I haven't had even a beer since July!..and I'm getting pretty thirsty! :rolleyes:

    Not a huge fan of Seagrams,the VO is better...I pefer the stuff from BELOW the mason dixon line!..though it costs less for Canadian Club here than anything from down south..when I was drinking more last winter and I was running low on cash I'd buy Hiram Walker brandy(usually Peach or Cherry) --its 3 bucks less,and its still 70 proof,and a bit easier on the tummy than Southern Comfort is....but this winter I'm going to be sober a lot unless I get a job--and then I'll have to refrain from drinking anyway,if I want to KEEP it.. :doah: :(

    I should go to NH when I want booze--its a LOT cheaper there than in MA!.. :crazy:

    Not in the least! :D I like drinking jack, jim, and george too but around good company with a good cigar i prefer to have a glass of something a little more "formal" but can't always afford what i would like to be drinking so was looking for some good subs, or bar brand type stuff people have tried and like

    Sorta Off-Topic but BigCountry, is there a brand of cigar you can find consistantly that you like? I have trouble finding 'em more than once if I'm not at a dedicated smoke shop and I don't smoke very often so when I do I'd like to enjoy it.
