    I'd like to sample some of the super premium offerings, but my Scotch-Irish heritage has prevented me from springing for the more expensive offerings... yet.
    In no particular order:
    Weller 12YO
    ETL
    Maker's
    Old Charter 8YO (this is truly a bargain!)
    VOB 90, although I still pine for the old 8YO, 86 proof (if anyone has a bottle of any size, I am VERY interested in talking with you)
    Blanton's
    Evan Williams Single Barrel
    Evan Wiliams Black label
    Elijah Craig 12
    Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve

    Hello bourbonfreaks :-)
    I come from Switzerland and I've enjoyed bourbon for three years.
    I love single malt from Scotland as well but nothing tastes like a real kentucky straight bourbon. (you know what I mean )

    In Switzerland some great bourbons are very hard to find but this are my top ten

    Wild Turkey Kentucky Legend barrelproof
    (I've never tasted a better whiskey this is a masterpiece)
    Elijah Craig 12 years old
    George T. Stagg (I tasted the bottle which came out in autumn 05, 141.2proof)
    Wild Turkey Russells Reserve 101
    Wild Turkey 12 years old but only the limited edition
    Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    Blanton's Gold
    Elmer T. Lee
    Knob Creek
    Old Forester

    Thank you! Do you know the difference between the wild turkey 12 and the wild turkey 12 limited edition? I think the normal 12 years old has some more chewy oak in the taste and isn't as well balanced as the limited edition.

    Pappy 20
    Pappy 23
    WL Weller 19
    GT Stagg
    ER 17
    WT Tribute

    Looking at my list I believe I'm reside in the "Buffalo Turkey" domain.

    Wild Turkey Kentucky Legend
    Wild Turkey 12 Split label
    Wild Turkey Russells Reserve 101
    Eagle Rare 17
    WL Weller 12
    Elmer T. Lee
    Old Charter Proprietors Reserve 13
    Old Rip Wan Winkle 15
    Hirsch 16
    Bookers

    That being said, I've never tasted Tribute, Spirit, PWVFR 20/23 or GTS.

    Are you talking about the gold foil bottle? Yes, I think that one is slightly better "balanced" but they are both fantastic Bourbons. I'd drink either one without reservation.

    A great place to live!

    You do need to try the GTS, Kentucky Spirit and Tribute if you get the chance. All are wonderful!
