I'm partial to the small batch bourbons out of Kentucky. Particularly some of the offerings from Jim Beam such as Basil Haydens, Bookers, and Bakers. Blanton's is also good but I've found that the quality varies by batch. Wild Turkey Rare Breed is also good.
Of all these I like Basil Hayden's the best. It's best when paired with canada dry and a little bit of lime.

I prefer rum and Kahlua. I used to like vodka, but it was that "one-drink-too-many" too many times back in my college days, and I tend to have a psychosomatic reaction to it now. I've always hated tequila, with or without salt. I dislike straight whiskey, though its great when mixed with tea or coke.
yeah, i am really a whiskey guy too. when it comes to liquor i drink whiskey about 90% of the time, and other liquors 10%.
in the past i drank a lot of Wild Turkey and Jack Daniels, but now i mostly drink single malt scotch. i like Glenlivet, it's the best easily-available scotch, in my opinion. i like Glenkinchie pretty well too.
I'm a whiskey man as well. On the cheap I go with Evan Williams (much to the chagrin of my friends and their sensitive little tastebuds), on the more expensive side I'm happy with Maker's Mark. Bourbon is generally my favorite, I like some Johnny Walker (scotch) too.
After whiskey, rum is a favorite. I love spiced rum (Cap'n!).
Used to drink a lot of vodka, not too much now. I do love a white russian. My brand of choice is Stolichnaya.
OP, it's cool to hear that you're from Belize - I'm vacationing there for a few weeks in December (a few days on the coast and the rest visiting all of your delicious Mayan pyramids and ruins and caves, along with a few in Guatemala), and as rum and coke is my favorite mixed drink I'm glad to hear it's popular and readily available I'm only 20, so I can't drink legally in the US until April, and this trip will be the first time I've been out of the country in several years, so also the first time I've ever been able to legally purchase alcohol. Looking forward to it...
