    Re: My $20-30 bourbon (rye whiskey too) safari

    A lot of folks have given you their recommendations. Pretty much anything I could suggest has already been named. I would however like to suggest to you to dig a little deeper and do some more searching here on the site. Go back in the history of some threads and take a look. There's plenty of information about just what you're looking for.

    FWIW, I agree with Jim. (HighInTheMtns) Weller 12 and OWA would be at the top of my list. I love them wheaters.

    Some one else pointed out the same thing. No doubt that is correct. I have never bought any and just noticed it in passing when in the store yesterday. I will check next time I am in the store but I am sure it will prove to be the 10 Star.

    You're certainly not the only person to ever make that mistake, and I doubt that Buffalo Trace would be unhappy had you bought one before it was cleared up.

    Yes, I have no doubt that is the very intent behind the name. Seems a bit of dubious advertising at best and downright deceitful at worst, particularly given the nearly identical packaging. A solid blackmark in the book for BT in this case.

    Not that they would care a whit what I think!

    Don't be too hard on BT, they're far from the only distiller to pull that trick.

    Just being a a wee bit tongue in cheek. They didn't have a blackmark yet so they needed one! Don't think it is likely to change my buying habits much though.

    Neither of those are under $20 for me. :-(

    On the other end of this, at slightly above $30, Wild Turkey Rare Breed is definitely worth a shot and fits in well with the sort of mid-shelf high QPR pours that the OP is after.

    Where are you seeing the 10 yr AAA in GA? I've only ever seen 10 star here in Atlanta. I travel a lot to OH and make sure to bring back a few bottles every time I pass through KY.
