No, I haven't.  I usually reserve that for some strong bourbon like Bookers.
Glenlivet says to cut Nadurra with spring water.

As of now:
Best scotches
For 30-40: gentleman jack
For 40-60: ?
For 60-80: bolvini 14 yr Caribbean cask
For 80-100: glenlivet naddurah

Better suggestions are wanted!

Gentleman Jack is a Bourbon (previously stated)
Bolvini should be spelled balvenie
For 40-60 go with Balvenie 12 Yr Single Malt Doublewood or Cardhu

according to most, Tennessee whiskey is a straight bourbon whiskey. and even if you say its not a bourbon, why not? The product meets the regulatory criteria for classification as a straight bourbon.

It's not a bourbon because it doesn't taste like bourbon you are correct that it's closer to bourbon than scotch but it's still not bourbon

Its not bourbon because it is not made in Bourbon County Kentucky, and anything made outside that county can not be called bourbon. Ingredients wise though, it is a bourbon.

-1 Not true, to be called a bourbon it has to be made in america not in bourbon county.
Even though most bourbon are from Kentucky, that is because of the lime stone water, not a requirement for bourbon!
