    Re: Best Bourbon For $10, $20, $30, $40, $50?

    Hope it's not too late to add to this.

    under $20 - OWA
    under $30 - Eagle Rare Single Barrel
    under $40 - Four Roses Single Barrel
    under $50 - Lot B

    But this is not set in stone. So many choices, so little time.

    Re: Best Bourbon For $10, $20, $30, $40, $50?

    Thought would bring this back for update if people have changes from new offerings available this year and to include under $60 with increase in prices.

    Under $20- FR Yellow Label
    Under $30 - BT or FRSmB alot of good ones maybe EWSB
    Under $40 - WT rare breed
    Under $50 - RR single barrel (have not tried Bookers yet or had WTKS)
    Under $60 - Blantons now at $54.99 where I am at

    The way pricing in my area is going there won't be a 750 bottle of Bourbon under $20 by the first day of spring or $30 by the end of summer.

    It's going up quicker than gas or propane.

    not much left to put in the sub $10 slot anymore.

    the only thing there Id buy is HH 6 year, either the BIB or the green 90

    Re: Best Bourbon For $10, $20, $30, $40, $50?

    I like this idea. I'm not sure I can do one in each though. I'll spread it out over a few brands.

    Under $20 - OGB 100 $19
    Under $30 - ET Lee $29
    Under $40 - 4RSB $39
    Under $50 - Bowman's Single Barrel $49
    Under $60 - Lot B $54

    These are MSRP for these, but besides Lot B I never buy these at list. I can usually get OGD 100 for $17, 4RSB for $36 or so.

    There are way too many great bourbons in the $20 to $30 range. It's relatively easy to pick something for less than $20 or more than $50 but the sheer number of contenders in the 20-30 range just reduces me to saying, "Whatever I'm drinking at the time."
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    We're spoiled in Atlanta - ETL (well, when we had it on the shelves) runs $23-$28 typically. Agree with Flyfish though - when I think of $20 to $30 range, holy crap - there's a bunch! BT, ER10, FRSmB, EC12, ETL, WT101, OWA, W12, Larceny, 1792RR, EWSB, and sometimes FRSB and KC can be had for that. I wouldn't kick any of them out of bed Depends what mood you're in on any given day!
