    FWIW, I think Old Forester Signature is worth a shot, I haven't had the 86 proofer so I can't compare them, but I find the 100 proof Signature to be a great value.

    Agreed. It is a favorite "session" bourbon with me and many of my friends and won't break the bank. I'd go for it over the 86 proof every time, though the 86p ain't too shabby either.

    Re: I still find myself not knowing what bourbon to buy.

    OF Signature seems to not be available in my state... I asked my Total Wine to order me a bottle (back when I first tried OF 86), and the manager said it shouldn't be a problem... but it never showed up, and I gave up trying.


    No VOB either... another value brand that gets good marks whenever it's mentioned. Oh well, at least I get a great deal on EWB (under $15 for 1.75L).
