In your opinion, what’s the best use of this whiskey (sipping or mixing? Any recommendations on a particular mix? Neat or on the rocks. Maybe in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan.
Is there anything about the whiskey we should know that we didn’t ask? I’d toss out $40 or less for another bottle. But for the price point paid for this bottle, I could grab Old Forester for less and have a better pour.
