Ten High

As you may have noticed in my credentials post, I drink an ass load of Ten High. This isn't because I think it is a good bourbon, but rather because it's really cheap and still has a "whiskey" flavor. If I were to just rate taste alone Ten High would be one of the worst on my list. Right above Old Overholt and Five Star. However, once price is factored in I don't think there is a more economical option than Ten High. Depending on where you buy it you can usually pick up a handle(1.75 liters) for $16. Compared to the $20-$30 you usually pay for 750ml of other bourbons, this deal is fantastic. I personally drink mine straight, but I wouldn't recommend this to people who only like good whiskeys. It would be perfect with coke and if you have friends that are constantly mooching off of your nice whiskey just to pour it into a soda, I would suggest buying some Ten High to give them instead. They won't notice the difference and it will save you some money. The reason I am so attached to this whiskey is probably because I have been drinking it for so long. I have been guzzling down handles of this stuff for as long as I have been drinking, and throughout this time it has proven to be a nice cheap whiskey with no massive hangovers. If you need a cheap bourbon that will taste mediocre and not give you a hangover, Ten High is the whiskey for you.

  5. I think I've had bourbon with coke or something but no idea what it tastes like.

    The best value in the kind of whisky I prefer (peaty single malts) is Bowmore.

  10. i would concur, cost vs. taste, Ten High is a win. And who am I to be a booze snob, I just polished off a FourLoko. I am unemployed, so that is a factor...

  12. I have actually never had it. They only have the Jim Beam regular selection out here. Which is the Jim Beam, the Jim Beam rye and it's regular upgraded series, I forget what it's called, probably Jim Beam Black Label. I'm actually drinking the rye now and it's pretty good. Much better than Old Overholt rye.
