    Starting from nothing

    If you had no bourbon. I know that is a ridiculous statement, so stay with me. If you had no bourbon and had to go to your local liquor store to purchase 3-5, readily available bottles what would they be? Not necessarily a top 5 list, more of a 5 most drinkable list. In no particular order for me.

    1. EC12
    2. EWSB
    3. W12
    4. Stagg Jr.
    5. 4rsb

    Part of me wants to have OWA so I can make the SB blend, but Im not sure Id give up one of these to do it.

    And yes I know some of you hate me for W12 being constantly available.
    Im a simple man. All I want is enough sleep for two normal men, enough whiskey for three, and enough women for four.

    Yours are mine, Sutton; with only one trade-in. I'd leave the Baker's alone and pick up a bottle of Ezra B Single Barrel

    Great minds and all that Rich ... although mine was a very stream of consciousness response, on reflection, I might swap that Baker's out as well for a WT101 or Rare Breed. I like your Ezra B 12 yr pick as well.

    EWSB and/or EC12 (just can't break up with either one of these two)

    Old Grand Dad BIB, does a case count as one?
