    My top 5 at the moment:

    1. Four Roses Small Batch
    2. Buffalo Trace
    3. Elijah Craig 12 Year
    4. Woodford Reserve
    5. Four Roses Single Barrel

    Obviously this list changes pretty often but on this particular day, those are my top 5.

    I have tried most everything and really like makers mark. Bookers is my favorite on the high end. Woodford tastes cloying to me. Wild turkey 101 has got a certain something going on.

    Yeah I will admit Woodford is a bit different...almost more like a scotch than a bourbon. Bookers might be the next new one I try. I've also never tried Blantons as my local liquor store rarely carries it for some reason.

    High West, from Utah, American Prairie Reserve. Really really nice. Michters makes a great bourbon too.

    I believe it is small batch bourbon so it seems likely, but I have never had a "bad" bottle.

    Me either, had one that was very special though, which made the other disappointing. Im pretty sure they are a negociant.

    (Not necessarily in that order)

    One of my favorite things about Bourbon are the price points. As much as I love a good single malt Scotch, it's a pricy hobby to have. You can get a bottle of pretty damn good bourbon for $30. You can get merely "It's alright" scotch for the same price point.

    Agreed...you can really enjoy some great bourbon in the 30-40 range. A middle classer like myself can afford to high horse a bit :D

    Makers is what I usually pick up if I'm drinking bourbon.
     
  20. last week I picked up a bottle of jim beam - the four year old white label, don't laugh, it's kindof my first purchase in terms of whiskey. I dig it well enough, I'm not whiskey expert, but it beats some of the other whiskeys that I've had in terms of being mixed. Not sure how well it does on its own, my repertoire for whiskey is limited to canadian club, wiser's, and jack, so I'm not exactly a connoiseur at the moment like I am with beer, but I have the intention of getting there slowly.
