bottles i have enjoyed in the past: knob creek, elijiah craig 12 year. will be drinking neat or in the occasional old fashioned.

looking to spend about $30. the store I frequent has around 20 bourbons in this range and I can never decide which one to buy.

was thinking eagle rare 10, bulleit, buffalo trace, or four roses single barrel. is there any of these that are much better than anotother? i like fruit, vanilla, and spice notes the best.

Try the Eagle Rare first, then Buffalo Trace. Other ones you mentioned are not very good IMO.

I actually think Bulleit is pretty good, but only if you like a spicier more rye-like bourbon. Otherwise, Gnatty8 is right, stick with Buffalo Trace and Eagle Rare. They're both made by the same distillery (Buffalo Trace), maybe using the same/similar mash bill, but I believe the Eagle Rare (10yr) is just aged longer. They're both very good, but the Eagle Rare is a bit more refined. Also, when the Eagle Rare is on sale, the difference in price between it and Buffalo Trace is only about a $1. Having said that, if you try the Eagle Rare first, you might be a bit disappointed by the regular Buffalo Trace.

Better thing to do is spring for the 17 year old Eagle Rare. It's pricey, but fuck, you only live once..

Can someone help me ID a bourbon? It was in a bottle shaped almost exactly like a wine decanter: [/IMG] I was thrown off by the bottle...didn't strike me as something that folks in Kentucky would be drinking from I recall it being relatively full bodied and a syrupy sweet. I was a bit drunk at the time, so I can't say for sure.

Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon?

No unfortunately, and it isn't Willett either.

I've decided to start experimenting with Bourbons and started with a bottle of Woodford Reserve on the recommendation of a store employee. If anyone has recommendations on bourbons on the fuller and sweeter side, I'm all ears. The guy's second suggestion was Black Maple Hill.

I bet its Woodford Reserve Master's Collection. There are a few on the market though as they are a yearly release that doesn't sell out necessarily from year to year.
