I am new to this board but not new to bourbon. I have been enjoying bourbon for many years however only within the past two to three years have I ventured into the more expensive brands.

With that said, a friend of mine is going to Lexington, KY for a week and I wanted her to get me a bottle of good bourbon that may not be available in Michigan. Price about $40.00 +/-. I like a good aroma, pleasant vanilla taste without much burn.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
