    Never mind. Upon looking at it i noticed the other two are bourbons. The question remains- which of the 2 bourbons would you choose?

    I own the barrel proof rye, but have not tasted it yet. Word on the street is that is an excellent bottling, maybe better than Handy. I have the barrel proof bourbon #5 as well. Excellent bourbon for the money. Others who have tasted both #1 and #5 prefer the latter. If he's buying three bottle why not get both and do a side by side tasting.

    The #5 bourbon is significantly better than the #1. If the #5 wasn't available, I'd have no problem recommending the #1. But in a choice between the two.... #5 hands-down!
