she's big on Rome and Berlin. NYC freaked her out when we were there in 2014.
To be honest, I think I'd rather go to Rome or Berlin, too.

Any recommendations on a smooth bourbon? Something on the sweeter side?

I'm looking for something new...

I don't know what would be new, but Tennessee whiskey or Bourbons with high wheat presence in the mashbill might work.
Think it, be it.

Bulliet bourbon might work. It’s one of my favorite for the price

@Yogi217 I have no idea as to where you’re located,or which bourbons you’ve tried,but this is one of the sweetest,smoothest most delicious bourbons I’ve had in a long time. It is in fact sourced from Tennessee,and has 84% corn in the mashbill, which gives it that sweetness. I paid $60 a bottle,seen it for as high as $86."14E2C3D0-5001-47F7-99D0-F0B8AB6A979F.jpeg"

Thanks guys!

I'm 90 min north of NYC  in CT.

@Sage954 Love Bulliet. Going to try the 10 year stuff soon.

@Jett129 I think they have that at my local shop. I'll try it if they do or see if they can order it for me if they don't have it stocked.

I like the Bulliet Rye much more than the bourbon. Was really excited when they came out with the 10 year old,and really wanted to like it,but didn’t. I’m pretty sure all their juice is sourced from Four Roses,which I also happen to like. Especially their single barrel. Makers 46 is also on the sweet side. If you can’t get the Smooth Ambler in CT,Astor Wines is the only one who has it in NYC.

Four Roses is a great example of a high wheat mashbill. I was making old fashioneds with it last night, great stuff. Im with you on the Bullet rye over their bourbon.

I just checked my shops website a d they did not list smooth ambler.... Bummer. I think I confused with another bottle that looked similar.

Aren't rye whiskeys dryer?

I had the wild turkey rye a while back and was very impressed with the cost to taste ratio.

Had to check this out before I posted,but Four Roses doesn’t use any Wheat in their bourbon recipes. They’re predominantly 75% corn which is what gives it the sweetness. The main distilleries that use Wheat are, Buffalo Trace,Makers,Luxor(Rebel Yell),and Barton(1792) Pikesville Rye uses corn as it’s secondary grain,which makes it sweeter than most Ryes. It’s my current favorite.

Also wheated: Makers Mark, Weller (multiple brands), Larceny (almost certainly same juice as Rebel Yell, they are both distilled at heaven hill), Bernheims (actually a wheat whiskey)

Those are off the top of my head
I put on my pants the same way you do, I just put on better pants.
