    It is without a doubt the best "affordable" bourbon for the working man that I've ever had. That bottle probably cost $60-$70 and its worth every penny, as long as they only mix it with ice.

    I wouldn't think of mixing good whisky with Coke or even water. I'm not tiga.

    Yep, neat or a cube is what you do. Tons of great bourbons between 30 and 60 too. Costco also has a nice selection. I got this one at Elios in New Orleans.

    I'm more of a scotch drinker than boubon. That said, I went to the Chimes Monday for some half priced oysters. Ordered a double Johnnie Walker Black w/ an ice ball. Went down really good, so ordered another. Got the bill, $36 for the 2 drinks! Chimes is proud of their damn liquor!

    I've heard that it's not good to mixed hard liquor with oysters. Something about the booze affecting the oysters.

    Never heard that. I do it all the time. What sort of affect are you talking about?

    On a side note, 2 weeks ago, the oysters there were the best I have had in at least a year. Perfect saltiness, size, etc. The ones Monday were very bland and, for the most part, way too big. One of them was the size of a small hamburger patty. I had to put salt on all of them. Maybe all of the rain lately has messed up salinity levels where they are getting them from.

    I miss Giamanco's on Government St. Their oyster were always perfect. And you could either make your own sauce with ketchup and horseradish and stuff or pay a little extra for their special blend sauce. It was worth paying extra for.

    I went to Albertsons a few minutes ago. No Blanton's. The guy said they haven't gotten any in 2 years. He said it's because they are making it and it hasn't aged enough yet. Ended up buying Jack Daniels.
