    Similarity

    I currently am enjoying Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Russell's Reserve 10 year SB and the RR Single Barrel. Looking for direction on other offerings in the same flavor profile in the under $50 range? As a side note i do enjoy Four Roses small batch, buffalo trace, and Evan Williams SB also.

    Sounds like you like higher rye content bourbons. A quick google search will provide decent results... Bulleit comes immediately to mind. Should be sub $25 most places. I like the 10yr quite a bit, too.

    Re: Similarity

    Knob Creek Single Barrel is around $40 and 120 proof, Knob Creek Small Batch is around $30 and 100 proof. Both are on the bolder side of things. Four Roses Single Barrel is a slam dunk at $30 by me (upwards of $40 elsewhere), as it has an incredible balance of sweet and spicy. Henry McKenna BIB is under $30 and should be in the ballpark of what you are looking for. And maybe Elijah Craig 12 Yr and Elmer T Lee at under $30 as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. My local store carries E.H. Taylor single barrel for $46 and the Four Roses single barrel for $35. Any suggestions?

    Rock Hill Farms for a somewhat dryer version of Elmer Lee.

    I have really enjoyed the EHT SB as well as the FRSB. Those are pretty good prices.

    I'd give OGD 114 a try, comparable in proof to the WTRB and RRSB, but quite a bit cheaper.

    Re: Similarity

    I prefer to think of it as a cost savings purchase which allows me to make more purchases.

    Re: Similarity

    So based on my last post if you were in the store looking at FR single barrel and EH Taylor Single barrel what would you prefer?
