My cabinet looks like this: Pappy Van Winkel 20 Year Old, Maker's Mark, Elmer T. Lee, Elijah Craig 12 Year.
I have been drinking the Elijah Craig 12 Year most often, and will finish it soon. I will also likely finish the Maker's Mark soon but I will replace that quickly with a 1750 from costco...
I can get Knob Creek at Trader Joe's and I can get most everything else that is available in southern california. I am looking for the next bourbon to try in the under $30 price bracket.
I will not buy Jim Beam 7 YO, that stuff kept me away from bourbon for nearly ten years before I was willing to try something else. Likewise I fear the standard wild turkey and other cheap bourbons. I am looking for low end premium. You guys suggested the Elijah Craig and that was a great call. I look forward to your next suggestion.
