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

    I'll give a second vote for WT 101 and WTRB go figure.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Popped by the store to confirm my faux pas. It was indeed AAA 10 Star that I had been knee deep in, not that there was much doubt that I had been mistaken!

    I prefer the 10 star.

    I would add 1792 Ridgemont Reserve to this list. It is a very good 8 y/o bourbon at around $25. If that's too spendy, VOB is always an excellent option too, but not quite as good (in my opinion).

    Interesting options in that they both come from the same distiller. With VOB, I always feel that I am getting more than my money's worth. With 1792, not so much. There's nothing wrong with 1792 but for the same dollars I would rather have EC12, WLW12, 4RSmB, or EWSB.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I like EC12 and EWSB (not a weller fan), but 4RSmB is really the only other bourbon in that price range that I consider on par with 1792. I find it incredibly brilliant and well-balanced (The balance is better for me than VOB) for its age and price.
