    Re: Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    My go to is EWBL in this category. If someone said "you've got $100 to buy the bourbon you've got to drink all year long", 5 handles would just about do the trick Although I do also like AAA 10 star or FC103 (both a bit pricier though).

    Rep I left Jackson several years ago when I retired so can't say what's on the shelves now. hn4obourbon would know if he can wrench himself away from dusty hunting long enough to post.

    Re: Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    Well time to weigh in here. The "Minnesota" variety HH 8yr/86 is indeed very similar in taste to the EWB as someone had suggested (scored some last night, and going off of memory on the EWB). As a mixer I think I prefer the Benchmark. The Benchmark has the BT taste, and I prefer that over the HH taste profile. I hate to even mention this here, but maybe I should stick to JD and ginger ale as a mixer. To me when you mix the lower shelf bourbon with coke or ginger ale it just doesn't blend well. I have been drinking most bourbon straight, or with a bit of water or in an old fashioned or even some rye. I refuse to mix the good stuff with soda pop! I will be 60 this summer and I guess my tastes are maturing!! LOL!!

    Re: Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    I suppose what you call "value" bourbon is subjective. If price is the #1 factor, I have to say OGD BiB. I probably drink this more than any other bourbon out there, not just because of price but, because I really like it a lot........ along with WT101.

    If you are where you can find some, then this . . . . by a mile.

    OGD BIB is another good one. I dont really care for the BIB but love the 114. Fortunately, it is also cheap enough to consider a bargain. Cant go wrong with any of these!

    I don't like the current OGD BIB at all or at least the bottles I had from 2003. 114 is a different story.

    Last year's OGDBIB is the only one Ive tried, never having any older versions, which Im sure were probably a tiny bit better. When I had the 100 and 114, they seemed more like different bourbons than different proof points

    I was only fortunate enough to try HH6BIB once from a TPS order from Kentucky to my Minnesota home. All I can say is I would take a man who has that bottle in front of him very seriously. That man knows his bourbon and his wallet very well.

    JBW and Coke is my college football season cocktail of choice. It brings back fond memories from college days.
