Less than 30 dollars. What are the best bourbons for less than that?
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:23:15 PM EDT
Life's too short to drink cheap bourbon. Blantons FTW

For me; Buffalo trace or Bulliet. Depending on my mood.

I drink a lot of bulleit

Less than $30 for what, 750ml or a handle?
Because that would make a YUGE difference in my suggestions.

my line of thinking too. I really enjoy Blanton's a lot. I would rather have something that I like less often.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:26:15 PM EDT
I have no palate;

$20 for the BIG BOTTLE Early Times tastes as good to me as Knob Creek, and I like it better than Jim Beam.

Tried some others, always came back.

I'm Kentucky Whisky Drinker, not a Bourbon Snob.

Eagle Rare when you can find it for $29.99. Other than that, Buffalo Trace and Larceny.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:39:28 PM EDT
@Kubota3430 knows

Also Buffalo Trace or Maker's if you like the wheat taste.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:39:58 PM EDT
Jefferson's.

Woodford (Last I checked it was like $32)

Bulleit

Wild Turkey 101, Evan Williams Single Barrel, or W.L. Weller

$18.99 here, and yeah - not bad for a handle.

In for interest
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:45:21 PM EDT
+1 Early Times. Makes a good mint julep, and is surprisingly good over ice. When I'm flush, Bulleit; when I'm feeling indulgent, Maker's Mark.

Never won a jackpot: if I did, Woodford Reserve or Blanton's.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 10:46:56 PM EDT
I don't claim to be an expert. My local liquor store has a pretty good selection of bourbon, though. I asked my bourbon guy at the store what he recommends, and he told me that because bourbon has certain regulations, Jim Beam White, Evan Williams, etc. are pretty much equivalent at that price range.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 11:01:29 PM EDT
Evan Williams white label, or single barrel (I prefer the white label)
Old Granddad Bonded
Henry McKenna 10yr Bonded
Jim Beam Bonded
Jim Beam Double Aged
Old Forester
Charter 101
Old Ezra 101
JW Dant Bonded
JTS Brown Bonded
Four Roses
Eagle Rare
Ancient Ancient Age 10 Star
Early Times 354 Bourbon
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 11:05:00 PM EDT
Rebel Yell Small Batch Rye is surprisingly good. Not complex but good for sipping neat.
Link Posted: 4/13/2017 11:07:36 PM EDT
Old Forester does it for me on the cheap - when I want a Bourbon. It is my bare minimum quality. If they're out (rarely) I grab Bulliet.

I prefer rum, though, so YMMV.

This is the truth. Nothing, I mean nothing, comes close at that price. I'm drinking the 2004 one now. It's fantastic.

Well yeah but you would say that.

Elijah Craig Single Barrel

Old Granddad 114

WL Weller

and, if it's on sale, 4 Roses Small Batch

these are all wonderful bourbons and more than good enough to serve to anyone.

If you like Basil Hayden's try the Old Grandad 114.

It's tough for me because we pay out the ass for hard alcohol in Montana (control state FTW ), so I'll go $20-40 range to be in the $30 ballpark.

Eagle Rare.

Four Roses - Yellow Label or definitely FR Single Barrel (but more $$$, about $45 here for SB)

Buffalo Trace.

Evan Williams Single Barrel.

Those will do what a bourbon needs to do. Really, the answer is there are a ton of great bourbons available for reasonable prices.

I miss buying booze at the grocery store the couple years I lived in Vegas.

No liquor here, beer and wine only.

Beer's pretty cheap though.
