I started out trying bottles from different distillers to see which ones I liked best. I would suggest trying BT, EC12, and KC to compare with what you are currently drinking.

Good suggestions. Might also add Weller Special Reserve and/or Old Weller Antique to that list to get a taste of wheaters.

The answer to what you like may be hard so I will answer what I like in that range:

Wheated bourbons:
Larceny
Weller antique
Weller 12 year old

Rye bourbons:
-Four roses single barrel - fluctuates in taste but I have never been disappointed
- Old Grand Dad 114 and OGD BIB
- buffalo trace

Rye whiskeys:
Rittenhouse Bottled in Bond
High west double rye


There are many many more in that range but this is just a quick list.

Since you like WR, I'd say give Old Forester Signature a shot.

My goodness! For under $35 you can buy lots of excellent bourbon, depending on what is available where you live. Among my favorites are Ancient Ancient Age 10 YO (NOT 10 star!), Elmer T. Lee, Old Weller Antique, W. L. Weller 12 YO, Elijah Craig 12 YO, Very Old Barton BIB, Old Grand Dad BIB and 114, Wild Turkey 101, Russel's Reserve, and Rare Breed, Evan Williams 1783 and Single Barrel, George Dickel #12, Four Roses Small Batch and Single Barrel, Larceny, Buffalo Trace, and Knob Creek.
I envy you because there is a lot of marvelous stuff you will get to try for the very first time. Two little bits of advice: Don't judge a bourbon until you have sampled at least a half bottle neat, with water, and on the rocks; keep some tasting notes so you can better recall what you liked and why.

.

I would also add that some bottles change a little after you open them and some air gets to it (I'm not totally sure why, but this seems to be a big reason). If you don't like one, set it on the shelf, come back to it in a month or two. If its still undrinkable, pick up a liter of cola, or sell it to a friend.

Only in Chicago would they sell an "undrinkable" bottle to a "friend" :slappin::grin::lol::skep:
