more of a rum drinker myself, captain morgan or bacardi will do. light or dark depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I'm feeling mello a few spiced rum and colas or a bacardi silver and coke with a lime taste pretty good. If i'm feelin frisky the its time to break out either the morgan tatoo or the bacardi select, a little darker for a darker mood.
whiskey? I'd stick with the old standards like beam or daniels, sometimes a sip of black velvet or southern comfort are nice. I've recently discovered red stag and i believe that will be what goes to the woods in my flask on those cold winter days.
