    High rye mid-shelf suggestions?

    Looking for some suggestions for good mid-shelf high rye bourbons. Seems many of the high rye's are on the fringes of what I consider mid-shelf. Something that competes in the EC12 and 4RSmB range?

    OGD 114, 4R Single Barrel . . . you might also have some luck with private selection Old Scout bottles if the selector knows the mashbill they selected.

    For a mid-shelf offering with a high-rye profile, it's hard to beat Buffalo Trace, imho. Also, Old Forester is worth a try.

    Any of the standard <10 year Old Scout bottles should be the 36% rye mashbill. Those are going for around $40 here now, though. Not sure what your local prices are like.

    I'll second the recommendations for 4RSB and WTRB.

    I'd recommend Wold Turkey 101 & Rare breed (a bit more), Old Forester Signature, Old Grand Dad BIB (a bit cheaper) and some of the Four Roses recipes picked as singles, picked by whomever. The 4-R pix won't be as inexpensive, however. Most are over $50.
