    Most year's editions of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. Just my own preference. Many will disagree.
    Several 'second choices' depending upon my mood....
    Many 4-R SB (several different recipes) Barrel proof selections
    Henry McKenna 10-year, SB BIB
    Ezra B SB (I know, a NDP; but reliably well chosen... at least from a couple years ago on back)
    Rock Hill Farms
    Several selected barrels by GBS, including EC12, & ETLee

    So many awesome bourbons that could make the list but it's hard to argue with the Big O's recommendation. Awesome stuff!

    Wow. Ok Best Bourbon under $70.. That is a really leaving a lot of room for what others may like.. Day in day out I feel EWSB at $25.00 is one of the best bangs for the buck you can find out there today.. I also like the Four Roses Single Barrel OBSV their regular recipe for SB at $39.99.. You then have some good wheate'rs with the Welle'rs available if your like Wheat.. My list could be expanded.. Old Grand Dad 114 proof is a wonderful bourbon for the price.. If you like high proof Booker's is an eye opener straight up neat. KNSB at least the two times I have tried it seems to be a very good buy.. Then you have Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel.. Man alive under $70.. Hard to really pick just one.. Cheer's Creggor

    technically, not a bourbon, but neither are several above postings.....

    George Dickel 9 year 103 proof for $46

    honorable mentions to Bookers, KCSB, HMcKenna BIB....
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.
