Between the two- Kentucky Bourbon or Tennessee Whiskey?

Just getting a feel for people's preferences here.

You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Tennessee whiskey means "Jack" around here, in fact there are only four brands. I'd like to try some others. Jack in its various guises seems overpriced here.

I prefer the Kentucky, but Gentleman Jack, a Tennessee, is remarkably, near-Kentucky smooth and ergo very pleasant to sip straight up out on the back porch while the sun sets.

You can buy it by the half-gallon here in the US. I don't, but I know Virginians - a bourbon lovin' people if ever one existed - who do.

Sadly, it seems to be completely unavailable, and god knows, I've tried everywhere - import supermarkets, the best bottle stores, wholesale liquor suppliers.

I find adding some Fees Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Aromatic Bitters gives my Bourbon the spice profile I prefer in an Old-Fashioned, making it slightly closer to the taste of the Rye.
