I got a giant bottle of Evan Williams White Label, or their Bottled in Bond stuff. A guaranteed 4 years, cheap as dirt, 100 proof... It's a good "cheap thrills" bourbon. It burns on the way down, to be sure, but the flavor is pretty good in my opinion. It's a sweet, caramelly bourbon, and it's a good mixer as well.

As far as I've figured out, any offering from Evan Williams is about the best you can do in terms of taste-per-buck. They're my usual go-to 'cause I'm cheap

So, the Jim Beam "Double Oak" was not bad. It had a finish that was a bit too much like sucking an oak plank, so on to the next. My plan was to pick up some of the Beam "Black". Thank goodness that the proprietor told me that it was finished in a port barrel. I hate the sweetness than imparts, so I decided to skip over that one.

His tastes are pushing towards a couple of "light" rye blends, but I just haven't sacked up enough to go there again. I wimped out and picked up some Bulliet to be safe....hangover city, but tastes great. Try something new next week.

Any opinions on Buffalo Trace or Monkey Shoulder? Especially in comparison to Woodford Reserve.

I just picked up a bottle of Bakers to try out, last on shelf of a seven year that myself and proprietor were discussing likely won't come back.

My first thought after a sip was "Neegan's Bat!"
This stuff is rough and ready.

I thought the bakers was a little rough as well.

Bourbon is my drink but I drink enough of it that I typically stick to the cheap stuff Jim Beam White label) and have an occasional bottle of something nicer.

For Knob Creek, I’ll pick up the 9 year single barrel select. It’s pricey but worth it. If the pockets aren’t as deep because I’m buying someone else vodka or tequila I’ll pick up some Bulleit or Buffalo Trace. So...

I really enjoy Buffalo Trace as a lower-mid ended bourbon. I wouldn’t put it on the level of Woodford Reserve though. My absolute favorite mid-level bourbon is Basil Hayden’s, though it can be a bit sweet.

Now, punkncat (Juan Marteēn) is supposed to take us (myself and the Ox) to a nice place to enjoy bourbons but he keeps ignoring me when I bring it up. I think he’s trying to come up with a way to take the Ox and leave me out...

I really enjoy Buffalo Trace. Really good. And the 10-year version, Rare Eagle, is excellent. I actually like both more than Woodford.

A very very good and VERY inexpensive option is Old Grand Dad bottled in bond.

I'm looking to get my hands on Rittenhouse Rye, also bonded, and I really like rye...
