    Re: The allure of value bourbons: quality, quantity or both?

    I am confused by this whole topic. I find location in the store, bottle style and backstory the most alluring aspects of bourbon. I believe quality, quantity and price considerations are over rated. The hotter the chick at the tasting, the more likely I am to take a bottle home.

    Re: The allure of value bourbons: quality, quantity or both?

    Howdy,

    Given my meager budget, "value" Bourbons make up 80% of my..Bourbon In my neck of the woods, JB white label is the obvious choice at my local grocery. It's adequate when mixed with cola. When I'm "In the chips", so to speak, Baker's is my favorite. YMMV and MHO.

    PS: Liquor stores can't touch the local grocery stores on Bourbon prices in my part of Louisiana.

    Good Bourbon is good irrespective of price.

    ^What he said.

    100% quality in my book. If the price is conducive to purchase for quantity as well, then that's just a bonus.

    Agreed quality is the best reason to buy any bourbon.

    Agree, budget and bourbon don't always match up, especially if you frequent this site! I find prices at the local grocery and drug stores to be competitive and, occasionally, slightly less than my local liquor store. However, I am willing to pay a $1 or $2 more on standard stuff like BT, etc. to support my local store because they have "excellent" store selects for very reasonable prices and a wide variety. It helps immensely that my local store has a whiskey aficionado so he keeps the choices interesting. He is also a member of this forum.

    That said, I live in Indy. Kroger has a decent selection, and more than adequate for the average bourbon drinker, but I have found the selection at groceries and drug stores in other states to be significantly better.
