I’ve been a Scotch drinker for a long time but last summer I was introduced to Bourbon and I’ve just now started to buy some of my own. I need some insight on what I should be looking for at a reasonable price.
I started out with Woodford Reserve which I really like, but it is about $37 per bottle. I then tried some Buffalo Trace which was not quite as good, but the price was much better at about $25. I also tried some Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2004 which was almost as good as the Woodford and only about $30. I just picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig Small Batch 12 year old that I’m planning to sample tonight.
So, what are some good mid priced bottles I should try? I’ll admit my tastes for Bourbon aren’t really developed yet, but I’m trying to learn as I go. So far the Woodford Reserve is my favorite if that helps at all.
