    I am a big fan of Maker's Mark, it's a wheated bourbon, so it tends to be more mellow IMO. Along those lines, Maker's 46 is an alternative, tends to be a touch sweeter, but a touch higher ABV. I feel as though these are widely available, appeal to most and somewhat budget friendly. Of course, you've gotten good advice above too. Buffalo Trace is my favorite, but exceptionally hard to find in my part of the world.

    I do have a buddy that scours the bottle shops for budget friendly bourbons/whiskeys.......I guess you can say it's his "hobby". He swears Old Granddad is a fine bourbon.

    In the whiskey family, you could go with an Irish. Jameson's is ubiquitous; I prefer Tullamore Dew. But, you could also go with an American/Canadian blend, which, in my opinion, mix better than straight bourbons. If I order a Manhattan, I prefer VO, for example. I think Seagram's 7 mixes well too.

    Bourbon - Buffalo Trace
    Scotch - Tomatin Highland 12
    Other - Agree vodka is the most versatile. Also agree with Tito's.

    The things I keep as a minimum in my cabinet are , Makers Mark, Four Roses, Titos and a couple cheap rums like Bacardi (White) and Kraken Spiced Rum. Any of the above can be drank straight or are fine for mixing and none of them break the bank.....yea I'm a pretty cheap drinker....HA

    Vodka would be the easy answer.
    Or some kind of liqueur like Baileys, Grand Marnier, Drambuie maybe Kalua.
    Someone already mentioned Brandy/Cognac.
    Tough call to make with so many varying tastes in a room, again as mentioned buy for your self, guests will adapt to what you have on hand.
    If a guest has a preference for a specific brand, mention in passing, they may feel free to supply they own libations as your drink menu may not live up to they're expectations.

    Booze prices can differ quite a lot by region. However, these three should be in your price range or very close.

    I did read the other thread.

    I’d recommend Maker’s Mark for the bourbon, Glenlivet 12 Year for the whisky, and Drambuie as a mixer for coffee, with the Glenlivet or Maker’s Mark, or even sparkling wine.

    Tito’s Vodka. Can make many drinks with Vodka. Add in club soda and maybe a bottle of vermouth if you wanted to go one more step, you can make a few drinks this way - vodka soda, martini, and really anything can be added to the vodka.

    Or, skip the scotch all together and To go with your other thread on the bourbon - add in regular Bitters, make some demara simple syrup, buy some nice luxardo cherries and make Old Fashions for everyone. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t liked an OF. You could just go this route only, not buy anything else.

    You would look like the host with the most

    started a topic One Bourbon, One Scotch and one Other?

    One Bourbon, One Scotch and one Other?

    Thank you for all your responses in my other post.

    I definitely have more knowledge on the subject now.

    I have decided to get One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Other now. I’d still like each bottle to be in the $25 to $30 dollar range.

    I figure it doesn’t go bad (I know once it’s opened it does diminish in taste after a while) and I can use it for BBQ sauce and cooking.

    So sorry to bother you once again but if you could give me suggestions for:
    One Bourbon
    One Scotch
    One Other [Somthing other in the whisk(e)y family]

    Looking to cover as many bases as possible

    Thanks Again

    Steve

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker.
