    Another "which should i buy" thread

    Ok so i still have some vouchers to use at a store. The only real options are the following:

    Jim Beam devils cut
    Bulleit
    Buffalo Trace
    Bakers
    Woodford
    Evan Williams single barrel
    Beam small batch

    What do you think?

    Bakers is part of the Beam Small Batch series and would be a good choice. Bookers and/or Knob Creek likewise if available.

    EWSB or Bulleit would be my next choices.

    Bakers ....... really not a bad pour, one of Beam's better offerings IMO

    I agree, Baker's or Knob Creek.

    I'll buck the trend here and say; Evan Williams Single Barrel, Bulleit, and Woodford.

    I'm a 4R junkie, so I'd do Bulleit, then EWSB, then Woodford. Not to say I don't like the beam offerings, but I just like these better.

    Here's another vote for Baker's. The rich, creamy mouthfeel alone makes it outstanding. The proof helps carry a lot of flavor and cuts through the syrup that might otherwise be too dominant.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Bakers. It's possibly my very favorite bourbon with all all factors taken into account.

    Wow. This is the most love I've seen for Baker's. Is it just the competition?
    My vote would be for Bulleit or BT, but use the vouchers toward the most expensive option you like in order to get a deal.
