    How is it? I've tried local Texas whiskey and didn't like it at all!

    I don't remember the names. A Total Wine liquor store opened up here a few months ago, and they were giving out samples. Tasted nasty. Might have tried only 3 or 4 Texas whiskies. Think I will stick with Scotland, Ireland, Kentucky, and Tennessee! I have had some good Japanese whisky, too.

    I will say there are a couple that rival Kentucky you just have to find them.

    Garrison Brothers is the still the best, but their entry level bourbon isn’t as good as it was a few years ago. It’s a wheat based bourbon like Makers. To me it’s still better than Makers.

    Balcones makes some interesting whiskies. Their Texas Pot Still Bourbon is good and their Brimstone has kind of a scotch flavor to it.

    I hear good things about TX bourbon, but I haven’t tried it. I picked up a bottle of their whiskey when it first came out and didn’t like it.

    I’m more of a single barrel guy. Blends have their place but a good single barrel and you won’t go back.

    I try to pay attention to the message on my favorite mug, but some days are harder than others.

    I like the TX whiskey as a change... it's got a sort of vanilla "nose", but I like the flavor..... y'all inspired me to make it my choice this evening....

    I’m sure at this point I’m being super dumb, but now I’m even more confused. What is a michelada? From the picture it looks like you mixed something with the beer but maybe they’re two separate drinks. And now what is chamoy?

    It's a mixed beer drink. Usually with a spicy tomato base. With other seasoning and lime. If you go to an authentic Mexican food spot they usually sell micheladas there. The chamoy is like a sweet/spicey jelly? Kinda. Hard to explain the chamoy and there is different types.

    Oh! That’s probably my favorite Hefeweizen. It’s so good! Nice blades, too! :thumbsup:

    It’s pretty good, isn’t it? :D
