    Ha, have a glass of the exact same beside me right now. One of the best bang for the buck I know of

    However, Macallan Rare Cask is one of my favorites for special occasions.

    I'm very impressed with this bourbon. I generally prefer scotch but for $28 I think this stuff is great

    The Hakushu 12 is very pleasantly smooth.

    McKenna is a connoisseurs Bourbon. It's got great flavor to cost ration and makes a fantastic Old Fashioned. If you like McKenna, you might also like Journeyman or Few whiskeys.

    I have a friend who likes drinking honey whiskey, which is basically like alcoholic syrup to me. I want to encourage her to try something a little less college. Anyone have a recommendation for a sweeter bourbon that is a little more tempered and nuanced? $30 range if possible. Thanks!

    Does it have to be bourbon? Canadian whisky tends to be pretty sweet tasting because of the maple. Forty Creek is fairly good value for money.

    Makers Mark is pretty much your gateway bourbon. Nice taste, nothing at all aggressive.

    How about some white dog whiskey? I tend to find these sweater than the more refined bourbon, especially if the white dog has the same mashbill as whiskey.

    Thanks folks. Doesn't need to be a bourbon explicitly, I just knew that I found most of them to be sweeter than I normally drink since I favor Asian and Scotch whiskies.
