    That was the most expensive bourbon you ever mixed with Coke?

    I ask because that was the original question. Looking at some of the more recent posts, it appears that the dread basement effect is creeping into this thread.

    On the general topic of Bourbon and cola, there's a separate thread in this same forum, titled...(let me check)...oh, yes, Bourbon and cola.

    The most expensive bourbon I ever drank in my basement was ER 17. OMG, now I'm doing it!!!

    ...and ginger ale, et al.
    (in no particular value order, because some are hard to value, though a couple of these bottles were purchased at $150+ -- maybe even ++)
    • Pappy 20 & 23;
    • A.H. Hirsch (Michter's), various;
    • W.L. Weller BIB 7yo from the '40s;
    • Very Old Fitzgerald, distilled in the '50s;
    • numerous Antique Collection bottlings, including GTS;
    • quite a number of one-off bottlings of varied manufacture;
    • Just recently, I finished off the chardonnay-finished BTEC bottlings -- which would top a pro-rata $150 or so if available @ 750ml, and which I didn't particularly care for -- mostly in diet ginger ale;
    • just about anything and everything I've opened over the past 24 months.

    When I first boarded this 'train', I drank almost all my bourbon neat. Once I had 45-50 bottles open, I realized if I was ever going to reduce that number I'd better not be so 'purist'! Inevitably, then, it didn't take long to start realizing the joys of bourbon-and-*. And, I've long remembered and tried to emulate the advice of our host, "The Boss" Jim Butler, who always suggests using the best ingredients available for bourbon-related comestibles.
    (I'm currently finishing off my remainders from the Woodford sweet mash bottling, using diet cola tonight, some ginger ale previously.)
