What is the best tasting inexpensive bourbon you have ever had? I would say inexpensive is around $15.00 to $18.00 for 750 ml. My hands down choice would be old Fitzgeralds 1849, I believe it was an 8 year 90 proof. I just happened to grab the bottle in the liquor store and bought it because it was only $15.00 but boy was I surprised when I tasted it. Real thick rich maple flavor. Its probably my second favorite pour next to Van Winkle. Anybody else have a favorite cheap one?
