    Decide

    Help me in my decision of next purchase of either OGD 114 or Weller Antique 107? I currently enjoy Buffalo Trace, WT rare breed, RR 10 yr, and 4rSmBatch if that should sway me one way or the other. Thanks.

    Since the ones you enjoy are rye recipe I say go with the 114 . . . but there's something to be said for the other scenic route as well.

    The answer is easy: BOTH.

    Oh don't be so contentious Ben, a little flexibility, please.

    Re: Decide

    I think squire's approach makes a lot of sense, but couldn't argue against both either. I tend to prefer the high-rye mashbill bourbons myself, but not to the exclusion of wheaters. The OWA 107 is the type of wheater that I do like quite a bit, so I don't think you'd be disappointed in either.

    They are both very affordable high quality bourbons. I'd pick them both up and do a comparison, as I can't really say that one is better than the other. They're just quite different, one being a high rye (OGD114) and the other a wheater. In the under $25 range, both are hard to beat for the price. Enjoy!

    I'm thankful we have such choices, two premium grade Bourbons for the price of a routine 80 proof single malt.

    Cheers to that! Some of my friends who are big Scotch enthusiasts don't get that point. I rarely find a Scotch I'll enjoy for under $50 (and often a lot more than that), where I rarely find a bourbon at half that price which isn't at least satisfying.
