Ok so i still have some vouchers to use at a store. The only real options are the following:

Jim Beam devils cut
Bulleit
Buffalo Trace
Bakers
Woodford
Evan Williams single barrel
Beam small batch

What do you think?

Bakers is part of the Beam Small Batch series and would be a good choice. Bookers and/or Knob Creek likewise if available.

EWSB or Bulleit would be my next choices.

Bakers ....... really not a bad pour, one of Beam's better offerings IMO

I agree, Baker's or Knob Creek.

I'll buck the trend here and say; Evan Williams Single Barrel, Bulleit, and Woodford.

I'm a 4R junkie, so I'd do Bulleit, then EWSB, then Woodford. Not to say I don't like the beam offerings, but I just like these better.

Here's another vote for Baker's. The rich, creamy mouthfeel alone makes it outstanding. The proof helps carry a lot of flavor and cuts through the syrup that might otherwise be too dominant.

Bakers. It's possibly my very favorite bourbon with all all factors taken into account.

Wow. This is the most love I've seen for Baker's. Is it just the competition?
My vote would be for Bulleit or BT, but use the vouchers toward the most expensive option you like in order to get a deal.

EWSB all the way, with BT after that.

I would go with the EWSB or BT. Has been a while since I have had any Bakers. However, if you need to give a gift to someone you don't really like the devils cut would be appropriate. :grin:

BT or Knob Creek... though I must admit I haven't tried EWSB yet (I know, I know).

Cheers guys. What i have left at home are all higher proofs (WT 101 12 year, the export one) and Pappy 15. So i may go the EVSB if they still have it, otherwise the Bakers.
