    What should I get for this weekend?

    Currently empty at home, this is what the Class 6 has in stock:

    Also has MM for $21.

    Of the choices given in that photo, I'd take the Knob Creek. I think it's good whiskey. Of all the Beam whiskeys I like that and Baker's best.

    Easy choice for me, Bulleit!

    Re: What should I get for this weekend?

    In order I'd go

    Knob Creek
    Maker's Mark
    Bulleit (out of curiosity since I have never had it)
    Wild Turkey

    I'd switch to something else before buying Woodford again. But if you like the taste of copper lingering on the finish, then this pot stilled bourbon may work for you. It is the most... Unique of the group.

    Ok, went with the KC for $3.50 more than the MM. This is a new one for me as a bourbon noob. Started with MM, WT101 and WR...preferred MM of the three.

    Out of those, I'd take the Bulleit. I think that's a great value brand.

    While the the Class 6 selection isn't great, the prices (tax free) are pretty good. I had my first glass of KC neat and then I had one with Coke Zero and some pizza. It was smooth up front but had a long, hot finish. I find it to have a lot of tannins too. Trying it with Canada Dry diet ginger ale now... not bad, but isn't really singin' to me.
