    Elijah Craig has been my go to for a while now. At under $50 / 1.75L it is a hard value to beat IMO. Stands up well against much more expensive bourbon.

    Stumbled upon this while out and about today. Not bad, not great. A little too much licorice for me.

    I've never had their rye, and it's been 8 years since they stopped distributing near me, but I have very fond memories of their bourbon. My understanding was that BMH was part of Willet

    Yes, their bourbon was fantastic when I last tried it 8-9 years ago. I think there were three different types. Found some Balcones at the same place. Will see what the hype is about.

    If you guys enjoy rye and didn't try the Pinhook's "Bourbon N Rye" (The name of the Horse and the Straight Rye release ), you're missing a really delicious stuff for sub $40 price...

    I like Buffalo Trace a lot. I'm a big fan of good bourbon and it's hard to beat the price/quality of this stuff. No wonder it's impossible to find.

    Fine Missouri Bourbon.
    Found this last time we were down at Lake of the Ozarks.
    Smooth and almost buttery.
    And a Para 3 M4 sprint.

    Never been fond of Jim Beam brand bourbons until I tried Legent. Hopefully this was the young stuff they use for those weird apple and vanilla flavors.

    Ever try Bakers? That's my hands down favorite of the various ones that stem from Jim Beam.

    Well, every time I have a chance to drink local stuff that I like, I'd take it... :D
    Again, it's a Rye, and IMO it's outstanding - looks like highly regarded online, Manifest brand, out of Jacksonville FL.
    Only one online store sell it but I was able to find few bottles in the known alphabet liquor stores network, they did shipp them to the store next to me.
    I'm good with excellent Rye for a long time... :thumbsup:

    What spirit do you go for instead? It is true that the whole high end Jim Beam line hits pretty similar notes throughout. I like it, but tend to go for Bulleit or Woodford more often these days, at least in that $25-$50 price range.

    I’m partial to Buffalo Trace and their related brands, especially Eagle Rare and Sazerac.

    I love Buffalo Trace for the money. So solid.
