Bourbon or Rye?

Discuss.

I like Rye better than Bourbon, but Scotch better than either.

Thanks. I'm not into Islay Scotch, so It's important in my research.
Did you start with Islay type Scotch, or acclimate to it?

Kentucky Straight Bourbon, only. When I sip, I sip the better stuff, 13 yo. However, I usually mix and use a younger bottle 8 yo. I'd rather not give the brand, I like what I like. Most would consider my taste to be a poor choice.

Acclimated from blends.

TBO, Islay isn't for everyone and most are turned off by the first taste. I wasn't, but I'm certifiably weird.

If you buy a bottle of a relatively mild Islay, like Bowmore, and consume it neat in small doses without having another scotch to break up the train, you may find the smoke and peat flavors quite enjoyable.

Bowmore is probably the best starter Islay, followed by Ardbeg.

You owe it to yourself to find a bottle of Templeton Rye.

My serious foray into Bourbon and Rye started with Bulleit.

Bourbon, knob creek 9yr. Mostly drinking this in mint juleps and old fashions.

Scotch blend. Johnnie walker black with sprite and ice.

I find rye has too much "bite" for my liking.

Bourbon. Rock Hill is my favorite by a mile but is basically unobtainable now that the hipsters moved in on it.

Buffalo Trace is the best value I think and even at a higher price point it would still be my 2nd favorite.

I do not care for Scotch at all. I may pick up some rye if interesting suggestions pop up out of this thread.
