The difference can be quite profound. For example, drinking a fifth of Early Times produces a much different type of hangover than Evan Wlliams black label, which in turn produces a hangover harsher than if one decided to drink Woodford Reserve or Makers Premium.

Cheap booze will always fuck you up worse the next day than the good shit. Pay now or scream later. Your choice.

Indeed. Some wold say, "Hey. I'm gonna be hurting tomorrow anyways"
...but there's a difference between good clean pain
and meaningless, frayed, unfocused all around pain.
Spend a little more for the good pain. Then you can make it back into the bottle again the next day much easier.

Cabin Still whiskey. Also called "Stab & Kill" in certain cliques of cliche circles (around the fire with bums). Eminently drinkable rot-gut 'round these parts.

Lately I've been going toward rotgut when it comes to bourbon or just buying Canadian whiskey. Age statements have disappeared from a lot of brands and prices have increased on others. So Ezra Brooks is good by me. Scotch is where I go if I want high quality stuff.

Not exactly whiskey but.

In the realm of Rum there is a marked difference in taste, vomit producing vapors and methanol.

The best Rum so far that I have found is Queen Charlotte from Muddy River Distillery in Belmont,NC.

Smooth and not fiery. Great on the rocks or with Coke.

It makes the Captain taste like gasoline in comparison.

If you can find it. It is worth every penny to me.
