    What is the best bourbon EVER made

    What is the absolute best bourbon ever made. If it isnt made anymore how much would you be willing to pay now for just one last bottle of it

    Free Bourbon!
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I'll keep the diatribe short, but the quest for the best bourbon is a fool's errand. Taste is subjective so you will certainly find favorites but this idea that there is some 'best' out there is an illusion.

    Re: What is the best bourbon EVER made

    Recently I have tasted two that I think rank up there as the best ever made.
    Old Fitz 101, from the late 1970's, it has been referred to as part of the original Bourbon Heritage Collection.
    Wild Turkey 101, from the Turkey Lore decanter series of the '70's also.
    Both from Tony AKA ACDetroit.

    Re: What is the best bourbon EVER made

    I will steer this in a different direction. Late 80's jim beam rye. It was the first rye I ever drank, the Alabama abc store had a lot of old stock of this. It had a flavor that I have been unable to find in another rye. I have not been able to reproduce it either.
