    Excellent smooth conventional gin, juniper-forward, but with more complexity and richness and range than the similar Tanqueray; nothing imbalanced, as w so many gins, including or especially the modern fancy overly complexified ones. Easy and pleasing to drink straight w an ice cube.

    always on the lookout for cheap drinkability, I find this the same as a decade ago --- tasty and rough. good nose. yes, absent of depth and richness, yes, but not simple and simpleminded, and not unpleasant. sweet and with a bit of complexity. if it were not rough (and it also looks light in color) it would be something sippable straight, in a pinch. like benchmark, almost, which is a real bourbon with only roughness at the finish as its drawback.
  4. Old Smuggler Blended Scotch Whisky

    Defines tasty bang for smooth finished buck in the usa, and if you mix many drops w a good value bourbon (EW, Benchmark) you have just upped the latter to major sippability. (Do not ever tell anyone you did this, tho.)
    17.0 USD per Bottle

    A very tasty and sweet blend (without overmuch graininess) and a real bargain, almost at the level of Smuggler, which sets the standard. V nice w water only. A savvy scotch-blend drinker would prefer its taste to any number of more expensive anodyne blends.
