Balvenie Caribbean Cask is one of mine. An incredibly smooth whiskey and the rum cask aging gives it a unique, sweet flavor

That one is so tasty, neat works just fine. I prefer an iceball or large cube. If not available, "light rocks" is good. I tend to snack when I'm sipping bourbon, and neat typically gives me heartburn.
Yeah, I think I'd have to do the same. My stomach ain't what it used to be, lol. Probably will just sip some after dinner or something.

For those that don't know it, we have a really nice distillery in Gonzales called Sugarfield. In the drinking thread, I have mentioned how much I have enjoyed their bourbon.

Tonight I have a new offering which is a single barrel bourbon aged for 7 years. Now i like my whiskey neat but this stuff clocks in at 121 proof! I took my first sip neat and felt like it was peeling the skin from my throat. There just isn't a choice...there was too much heat to taste the bourbon. So I added a little ice cold water and it opened up nicely into a rich, full flavored whiskey with a nice bit of spice. Really nice flavors of vanilla, caramel, orange zest, and hazelnut

Highly recommend this one.

121 seems excessive.

Im wondering if you’ve ever had any whiskey from a distillery named Sugarfield? If so, what did you think about it?

So I messed around with my Woodford double-oaked, wasn't paying attention and enjoying the flavor. And now I can't see straight.

I have an unopened bottle of that, too. My buddy across the street opened a bottle over the summer, and I tried it. It was a bit too heavy for summer drinking, but I meant to try it again now that we're in the colder months. Will have to give it another try.

My BBQ friends love that one. I'm not allowed to drink the brown liquors, of course.

My dad gave me this for Christmas. It’s so tasty. I’ve been pretty loyal Woodford drinker for a while now but never had the double-oaked. It’s sweeter but not in a cheap sugary way. It’s really good.

My neighbor is a Woodford die hard so I got him a bottle of this double oaked for christmas. I should have gotten myself one, too.

Instead, I'll have to suffer through....
