A short but informative article.

The author is correct in using fruits to flavor your drinks instead of the artificial tasting ingredients. RTD's are for folks that have no taste and imagination with which to create their own drinks.

I also like his plan to "normally" buy affordible choices, but, every once in a buy something top shelf.

I will also throw out the thought that the label statements are very important. The terms 'Straight', "Single Malt' and '100% Agave' should always be looked for.

Straight is a term that means your whiskey is always unadulterated. The opposite term is Blended...which means that there is alot of filler, vodka and flavorings contained within your whiskey.

Single Malt and 100% Agave are similar to Straight but refer to Malt whiskey and Tequila, respectively.
