    Which one would you choose?

    Going to shopping this weekend to get one good bottle.

    Which one would you get? (these are all new for me)

    E.H. Taylor Tornado
    Vintage Bourbon 17 year
    Willett 8 year/121 proof
    Four Roses Single Barrel (not the LE)
    PHC 5th Edition
    Garrison Bros. Texas Whiskey

    I'd go EH Tornado or PHC 5th. I do like the Vintage 17 but it seems widely available where as the Tornado and PHC are more limited.

    I'd pick up any of these three. Most likely I would get the 4R since I'm currently out. Got a bottle of the Vb17 already and the PHC is a tad pricey.

    I would eliminate the 4R and Garrison form the list. You can get the 4R anytime, and Garrison is a micro, not saying its bad, I actually have high hopes, but is young and expensive and relatively easy to get in TX. I have wanted to head to Nye for a visit.

    Yeah the Garrison is expensive. All the bars that carry it are a good ways from me, and hard to have time to go try it at a bar.

    The VB 17 is tempting since it's a wheater..

    As with many KBD bottlings, the quality varies from bottle to bottle. But the good ones are VERY good and the price is great for a 17yo whiskey. If you're able, give it a shot.

    It's not just expensive. It's awful bourbon.
