Eagle Rare is my favorite. But the dang bottles always have a leak.
Woodford Reserve or Knob Creek. But personally, I'm kind of in the mood for a peaty scotch like Lagavulin 16.
Benchmark 8 is a great cheap whiskey that comes out of the same distillery as Buffalo Trace.
I love me some bulleit. Unfortunately im on an evan williams budget.
Jim Beam, white label. Add coke and ice. Yummy!
W.L. Weller 10 Reserve. Made by the same place that makes Van Winkle but at $40.
Any bourbon you like that you can afford to drink rather more often than seldom.
Got to agree! I just tried the knob creek whiskey and it's very good!
I usually just get Makers Mark but this stuff made me a believer.
Amazing caramel flavor and smoothness.
I've recently started trying out different whiskeys.
I like Evan Williams.
Tin Cup is a bit more expensive. Very good though.
I have had just about all the recommendations, cannot go wrong with any of them.... my go to favorite is 1792 Small Batch. Christmas Eve I had the rare pleasure of a glass of Pappy Van Winkle 15 year - "very good but not worth $1400.00". I'll stick with the "1792" Enjoy!
Want to start a smuggling ring? That goes for $120 a bottle here.
Check out Freedom Bourbon!
Made in San Diego by a veteran, and it’s delicious!
I have tried a LOT of bourbon, that being my favorite spirit and all, and through all the single barrel, or family reserve, I still have to say my favorite is still, after years, courtesy of DR. James Crow... Old Crow Kentucky Straight at $9.95 a bottle in Oregon haha
Never been much of a cocktail guy but had a whiskey smash at a local bar and have been making them Friday’s after work with 4 roses bourbon. Tasty. Plus it gives me a an excuse to use my wife’s spyderco kitchen knife. I’m starting to like 4 roses as much as Woodford.
Redemption Bourbon has fastly become my go to. Its $26 a bottle at my local store and is delish neat, on the rocks and with the price tag I dont mind using it to mix with diet ginger ale or coke zero either
I have had bullit and its good i got sum tin cup whiskey for xmas and it is smooth its like 25-30 dollsr range.
Hudson Baby Bourbon
Reminds me of Doc Watson's joke he tells on 'Old Timey Concert' of Fred Price going into the liquor store asking for some "Old Rabbit". Clerk tells him, "I never heard of Old Rabbit, Fred. I got some Old Crow..." Fred says, "I don't want to FLY, I just want to hop around a little bit..."
I highly recommend Larceny if its sold in your area. Super smooth!
Hahaha that is a good one!
I agree, my two favorites for less than $30/bottle are Larceny and Buffalo Trace.
Wow... how have I missed this thread??? I’m a bourbon lover. Love it all. Tonight, been enjoying the Jim Beam double aged oak.... not to bad and on sale for $16.99. I’m usually a Jefferson guy...
I recently discovered this one made just down the road from me. Still sipping it chilled, testing it out. It’s good but a bit pricey.
Lots of love for Buffalo Trace, on this thread but I can't agree. The name sounds like scat, and The taste is marginal.
Has anyone tried Leadslingers Wiskey?
Likewise - Woodford Reserve is my favorite, but I also liked Basil Hayden when I’ve had it.
Angels Envy is pretty tasty.
Woodford reserve and 4 roses are my mainstays. Picked this one up awhile back and will be getting into it soon.
Just had some Crown Royal Apple very nice saw they had one just called dark its calling me...
I've been drinking the Crown Royal "Bourbon Mash Bill" lately. It's pretty good.
I discovered Evan Williams Single Barrel a few years ago and it's always been my go-to
Bourbon yes i highly recommend it
Rock Hill Farms
Maker's is my every day whiskey with Knob Creek for special occasions.
I know it's a whiskey not a bourbon but I've got a bottle of Sazerac Rye that I really enjoy.
Evan Williams Black Label, Evan Williams Single Barrel, Wild Turkey 101, and for Old Fashioned or Manhattan cocktails I like Old Grandad 100 Bottled in Bond.
I've settled on these after drinking many brands throughout my years, my recommendations are all under $30, the Evan Williams Black Label goes for $20 a handle here.
Bought a bottle at Costco over the weekend for the first time. Jim Beam 1.75 liter for $20.00. JB is not my favorite but it is good enough for the dogs that pull my sled.
Weller is making some really excellent reasonably priced whiskies these days. Getting hard to find around here.
Choosing a bourbon is like choosing a mate, very personal journey. My favorite is American Prairie by High West, my second favorite is Eagle Rare. I'm enjoying an Eagle Rare as I write this. There are many excellent bourbons, enjoy your journey!
Is it weird that I've always liked buffalo trace better than eagle rare? I know the eagle's supposed to be a step up but I always thought BT was pretty much as good as it gets.
I like Buffalo Trace too. Just like Eagle Rare better. That's why it's so fun to try new ones, you never know what you'll find.
A few good ones from rearranging the cabinet earlier this year...
For anyone that can get Rock Hill Farm, and can’t find Blantons, I’d love to trade. I’ve never seen RHF around me, but have always wanted to try it!
Oh I wish it were still reasonably priced around here. I used to be able to get the WL Weller special reserve for $30 and that’s a fantastic bourbon. Now it’s $160 at the same store.
If anyone can find Pappy of any variety and anything close to MSRP and want to get a bottle for me please let me know!
Hard to find around here, but this bottle was $28 last December. Had the first glass last night.
Been drinking Noah's Mill and Jack single barrel lately. Good stuff.
I always support wherever I put my roots when able. I drink Bowman Brothers and Blackback Bourbons, both made here in Virginia.
