Yes, yes, we all know how great this forum is at pointing you toward the next Small Batch, Single Barrel, Limited Release, or whatever other "flavor of the minute" is out there that is rare, limited, and exclusive-- the ultimate expression of the distiller's art.
This thread will not be about ANY of those...
Instead, this will be an ode to the bottom-shelf stuff that remain the unsung heroes of the business. Those El Cheapos that bring in the necessary revenue to make all that limited-production, "artisan-quality" stuff possible.
So, without further adieu, please post your favorite Low "Rye"-ders, adhering to the following criteria:
1) Less than $20 for a 750mL bottle. If it isn't cheaper than Jack Daniel's, it doesn't make the cut!
2) It has to have a "Low Rye" mashbill, with close to 80% corn.
So, now is the time to wipe away any potential embarrassment or judgment-- if you have a favorite bourbon that fits those criteria, but have been previously too embarrassed to admit, here is your chance to let us know!
