    Question If only one bourbon?

    Hypothetically if you were only allowed one Bourbon for the rest of your life what would your choose? I searched for similar threads, but most seemed to allow a few choices. Thankfully this will never be the case as I like a variety just like most of the site's members. While thinking about this choice I have gone back to the old liquor cabinet to refresh my preferences. Consider also that all other spirits (rum, vodka, gin, Scotch, rye etc.) will be unavailable as well. I think I have a choice in mind now, but would be interested in what other members would select as their one and only choice.

    ORVW 15/107

    It's a shame you can't find it in stores anymore. Unless you're really lucky.

    Right now it would be Weller Special Reserve, my current favorite!

    If not the 15/107, maybe an Old-Grand dad BIB from ND's heyday. some things I had this last weekend made me seriously rethink exactly what a good bourbon really is, and I'm not liking some of the answers I came up with.

    Right now, it's a tossup between Blanton's and Pappy Van Winkle Lot B, with the Lot B slightly in the lead.

    Gotta go with ORVW 10/107. I've never tried 15/107, but if it's better, I'll take that one....

    Old Granddad 114. High proof and high rye, you can't go wrong. And if you are feeling like a light drink just add water and its still great.
    Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
