my drink of choice when I am out is Captain and Coke, just about everyone has that, but at home or when I can find it at bars and restaurants is Woodford Reserve Double Oak.

I am trying to find a good travel container that won't break for when I am traveling, since I do travel off the beaten path a lot.

I love nearly all things boozeahol. We have a semi-regular bottle club at work, and we've had the good fortune of having nearly everything that's around a fair consumer price (and a few that aren't).
For Bourbon, my favorite go-to is Evan William's Single Barrel. An absolute price/performance winner. I have a bottle of that, and Basil Haydn's in the cupboard. My other favorites are Eagle Rare, Elijah Craig, and Breckenridge. My next treat-myself purchase though might be a nicer bottle of Weller.
For Japanese Whiskey, the +1 and I love Nikka Coffey. We don't have any in the cupboard right now. I feel like a bottle of that, or Hibiki should be in there.
The +1 is a big Scotch fan. I love the stuff too. We were in Scotland in October, and did a 4 day tour of Islay. As of right now, I just might love Scotch more than Bourbon.
Pro: we brought back 4 liters of Scotch from Scotland.
Con: No, you can't have any.

I guess I will need to pick up another bottle of the Special Reserve....

Had it a year or two ago, and wasn't fond of it.

Its actually the only Wellers you can sometimes find on the shelf around here tho!
