Basil Hayden and Eagle Rare are 2 I have.
Yes, but do you enjoy them? Lol

You will probably enjoy finished whiskeys. Angel's Envy Rye is a great choice if you don't mind spending $90. Belle Meade Madeira Cask Finish is a great choice too at $70. It's high proof, so you might want to try it over ice which also will sweeten the whiskey. Chattanooga makes a port finished bourbon that is also very good, but is somewhat limited although it's a bargain at $45. Regular stuff that leans sweet and is widely available that you might like to try is Maker's 46 and Larceny, both wheated bourbons.

I have not yet tried Westward Pinot Noir Cask Strength, but as soon as I find it I will.

I love Eagle Rare, but I'm not a huge Basil Hayden fan. Sounds like you enjoy the sweeter bourbons. You should try some Old Forester products like 1910, 1920 (not as sweet as 1910), or Rye. Those are all pretty sweet. Also, the Early Times Bottle In Bond I posted earlier is a good, sweet pour and is very affordable. It's become my go to since Eagle Rare is so hard to find. Woodford Reserve Double Oaked is also pretty sweet and smells like syrup and pancakes.


The internet goes crazy over Mellow Corn, but I haven't tried it yet, eventhough I've been tempted to grab a bottle since it's so cheap.


Also, if you like red wine, give this a try. I think it's pretty good:

A good inexpensive red is Justin. It’s great for the price!

Also @Madmarsha if you like Eagle Rare try Sazarac Rye made by the same company. It’s my go to Rye

About to get into this.

View attachment 157481
That's honestly one of the best I've ever had. I love the peachy sweetness enough that I bought 3 freaking bottles when it came available. I had ordered it without knowing the cost, but even then I wasn't too mad when I realized what I'd done.

The one from this last year with sandalwood they can keep.

I do. I look at it every time I'm in the store ... but I mind it.

So the dude at Total Wine tried to sell me Chestnut Farms. I didn't get it but they said it's their best seller (also alluded to how some of the other stuff they can't get, which I thought was interesting). So I didn't go for that at $60 though I liked the bottle. But instead I went for this instead at $40 .. because port.
