    Holiday budget bottle: Wild turkey 101 or Mellow Corn

    What would be your budget bottle of choice to share with buddies for the holidays (you don't have to pick Mellow corn or Wild turkey, but I thought they would be nice)?

    I'm guessing a lot of people are gonna rag on the mellow corn.

    Assuming a WT 101 purchase price of $20, others I would consider are: BT, OWA, and OGD 114. With that said, WT 101 is a quite worthy.
    For less than $20, if they are available in your area: VOB, AAA 10 YO, OGD BIB, FC, and Old Ezra 101.

    For $20, I'd get mellow corn and VOB BiB to share. That'll put you more around $25, but it'll give some variety and both are nice pours.

    I picked up a HH white label BiB yesterday as well and liked it. A very mild 100 proofer for $9.29; that might be a bit more palatable (than VOB BiB) to people who prefer a smooth bourbon.

    I just picked up a bottle of FR yellow label, $20 here in Mass., as the gifts budget just ate up the whiskey budget.

    I haven't had Mellow Corn, though I know it has some fervent fans. WT101 is OK, but I'd go with OWA. Strong, yet sweet enough for someone not used to drinking bourbon. WSR if you don't want it quite as strong.

    If I were you I would head to Binny's and grab a bottle of their WSR as IMO it's a very easy bourbon to drink and a great gateway bourbon!

    I've been on a Mellow Corn kick, as of late, so that's where I would go. It's only $12.99 in my state, and while it's 100 proof, it goes down like liquid candy.
