    Your Favorites From This List?

    Just want to know your favorites, in order, #1 being your favorite, from this specific list:

    • Elijah Craig 12
    • Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2001
    • Old Forester Signature 100 Proof
    • Sazerac Rye
    • Corner Creek
    • Bernheim Original Small Batch
    • Bulleit
    • Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    • Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel
    • Jefferson's
    • 1792 Ridgemont Reserve
    • Knob Creek
    • Buffalo Trace
    • Russel's Reserve Small Batch 10 Year
    • Four Roses Small Batch
    • Four Roses Bourbon
    • Old Weller Antique
    • Fighting Cock 6 Year
    • Maker's 46


    There is no rhyme or reason to this list. Just a random mix. Rank your favorites, unless you don't want to, in that case, just ignore this.

    Thanks.

    Edit: These would all be recent purchases, by the way.

    We both have OWA at the top, but we vary widely after that.

    Of the ones I'm more familiar with...

    Old Forester Signature 100 Proof
    Knob Creek
    Maker's 46
    Old Weller Antique
    Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel
    Fighting Cock 6 Year
    Four Roses Small Batch
    Bulleit
    Corner Creek
    Elijah Craig 12

    I guess I've had some decent EC12, but the last bottle I drank from was sort of gross.

    It's impossible for me to put them in order, but:

    Four Roses (anything) is a particular favorite that I always have a bottle of in one form or another. EC12 is another favorite. KC, both the standard and SB Reserve are favorites. ER is another, as is ETL.

    Re: Your Favorites From This List?

    This about does it, but on any given day, the rankings could change depending on my mood and palate:

    Four Roses Small Batch
    Buffalo Trace
    Bernheim Original Small Batch
    Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel
    Elijah Craig 12
    Four Roses Bourbon
    Sazerac Rye
    Knob Creek
    Bulleit
    Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    Fighting Cock 6 Year

    None of the below are available in Australia, so I've not tried these, or have not tried them in any significant amount to rank them:

    Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2001
    Old Forester Signature 100 Proof
    Old Weller Antique
    Maker's 46
    Corner Creek
    Jefferson's
    1792 Ridgemont Reserve
    Russel's Reserve Small Batch 10 Year

    1. Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    2. Four Roses Small Batch
    3. Old Weller Antique
    4. Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel
    5. Russel's Reserve Small Batch 10 Year

    The rest of the bottles are things I wouldn't normally buy or haven't tried lately.
