'ello everyone. I'm fairly new to the world of bourbon (been drinking Makers for years but just started really branching out and learning to experience the drink) and have been attempting to school myself but thought I could learn a lot from a forum like this. i try to limit my single purchases to $30 or less, though a few bucks here or there doesn't bother me. Any recommendations on brands, tasting, or other rudimentary & introductory lessons appreciated!

What I've tried and know fairly well thus far:

* Makers Mark
* Knob Creek
* Elvan Williams Single Barrel
* Elmer T. Lee
* Woodford Reserve
