    Rock Hill Farms

    I saw this for 29.99 today at a local store. I know a few users here have praised it, but I passed on it this time. Should I be going back to the store soon to scoop up a bottle at that price?

    If I were going to get one of the following 3 bottles, which do you think I should choose?

    Rock Hill Farms
    Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve 90 Proof
    Knob Creek

    Ignore the cost, since it's not really an issue with these, since the Rock Hill is so reasonbly priced. And keep in mind that I do not like Wild Turkey Rare Breed (I know, don't kill me)

    If it were me, I would be going back to get the Rock Hill. I have never had it and am most anxious to try it. I like Knob Creek and recommend you try it sometime if not right away.

    Re: Rock Hill Farms

    Thanks for the replies all. I'll pick up a bottle of Rock Hill Farms the next time I'm at the liquor store, which will probably be this weekend. I usually go once or twice a week to scope for sales.

    Ed, I've actually had Knob Creek and I do like it. I just included that in the list as a comparison. Since everyone has recommended RHF over it, I'm pretty convinced I'll be getting a good bourbon. Plus, it seems I should take advantage of such a good price.

    By all means get the Rock Hill Farms. It's one of my favorite bourbon's, and that price can't be beat.

    It usually costs me somewhere in the high $30s to low $40s, so the price for you is certainly good. I've had it described to me as a very luxurious bourbon, and I can't find any disagreement with that description!

    Rock Hill is extremely good. And that is an extremely good price.

    Rock Hill Farms is made by Buffalo Trace. With the exception of Stagg, I tend to stay away from high priced Buffalo Trace products. The reason is that "Buffalo Trace" is so good, and it doesn't cost that much even after paying UPS charges from Chicago.

    So I've never had Rock HIll Farms. Can somebody tell me how it compares to "Buffalo Trace."

    I agree with all the others; IMHO, the best of those three, usually at $10-15 more a bottle. Great price.

    Definitely pick up the RHF. It's $50 here in Seattle, and even at that price is one of my favorites.
