    Re: Best tasting inexpensive bourbon?

    I like Old Ezra 7 year 101 in that price range. It's got the intensity from the higher proof and a little more age on it to round it out a bit.

    Re: Best tasting inexpensive bourbon?

    In Australia, where everything's expensive and the lack of choice is enormous, I found that my favourite is the Evan Williams Single Barrel. Below that, ordinary Wild Turkey is the go. I haven't tried the Evan Williams 7 yet, but it surely must be better than JD Black label.
    If we actually had any Elijah Craig in the country at the moment I'd probably confirm how good that was too.

    Re: Best tasting inexpensive bourbon?

    Prices have apparently gone up here in AL. At the new prices:

    1) Old Forester 100-proof, $17
    2) Elijah Craig 12-yr old, $17
    3) Old Grand Dad 86-proof, $15, but occasionally on sale for $11

    7 year Evan Williams is underrated. It is a very good bourbon, especially for the price.

    Re: Best tasting inexpensive bourbon?

    Guess I'm just lucky living in a market where I can get Old Rip Van Winkle 10/90 for $16 and make it my 'well bourbon'. I still can't figure out how they sell it so cheap compared to everyone else.

    I vote for Weller 12 yo as well. Absolutely delicious, and only about $15/bottle. You have to look hard for it out here in California, though.

    Re: Best tasting inexpensive bourbon?

    Jim Beam White at 26.99 and Cougar at 24.99 are probably the best cheap buys for me.
    (In comparison, Evan Williams Single Barrel is $45 and Elijah Craig 12yo is $40 - both are definately worth the extra money)

    Jim Beam Black & EC 12 YR would be two of my favourite cheapies, but for ultimate value for money could not go past Buffalo Trace.

    I didn't think it was available in Australia?

    It's not but even after air freight & tax it's still a bargain.
