My household 'well' bourbon has become the Jim Beam-produced Old Crow Reserve (black label). It is 4yo and 86 proof, NOT to be confused with the execrable Old Crow white label, which is Beam's imitation of a death wish.
The 'Reserve' has some significant flavor -- and, thus, can be consumed enjoyably 'neat' -- but is absolutely perfect, at the $18.99 per 1.75L bottle, for kitchen and mixing use.
An anecdotal aside:
- I work part-time at a local liquor store, and have been pitching this bourbon for several months to customers who routinely buy either JB 4yo or white-label 7yo/86 (it's significantly cheaper than either), or are just looking for general-purpose bourbon/whiskey. We've been regularly buying the 750ml and/or 1.75L sizes weekly in case volume because of return sales. People buy it again once tried.
