Ah...youngsters. After 30 years of hard drinkin', I concur; clear spirits will always leave less of an morning after than darker spirits. Stick with good grain alcohol.

How about a new thread entitled "Bourbon vs. Scotch," in which Scotch wins every time?

Mixing bourbon with coke is a waste of bourbon. Why ruin something so perfect?
This is why you make sure to make yourself a proper screwdriver with real, unsweetened orange juice. That or some nice vodka and cranberry (once again, with proper cranberry juice that isn't spiked with high fructose corn syrup).
even natural orange juice or cranberry juice without added sugar still has an assload of sugar in it.
A good vodka is a great thing. A good bourbon (hell, a good whiskey, period) is a much better thing.
If you're going to mix with Coke, don't use a top-shelf whiskey, as you waste a lot of the complexities in the flavor that make it a good whiskey to begin with.
On the other hand, using a good vodka in a mixed drink can make all the difference in the world with taste, as rubbing-alcohol vodka can really ruin a drink.
Hell the only whiskey I've tried that I can stand is Jameson anyway.
