Since I am still a beginner and still trying to develop my palate, I am looking for the more experience here to help me steer a course. My budget is extremely limited but with taking my time a saving my money I could see spending $40.00 for a bottle of bourbon or asking my family to go in together say for a birthday present or something.
Generally I drink Evan Willams Black as an everyday bottle. I have had Maker's Mark, Old Crow Reserve, and now a bottle of Old Weller Antique.
What I would like to see is a list of bourbons NOT to buy. Either for quality reasons or there are just better values out there. I just don't want to waste my time and money with rot gut.
