    Re: lower cost, better quality

    Greg,
    How are you doing! I must agree that Weller 12 year old is one of the those brands that flys below most people's radar screens. Paul Pacult has rated it as a top 20 spirit brand for the last two years, yet most folks don't even know that it exists.

    Being a wheated bourbon, it is a bit softer and sweeter. Spending 12 years in the barrel adds a level of complexity that few other bourbons possess.

    I will now take my salesman's hat off.

    I must add another to my less than $20 list.
    I just tried my first Old Weller 107 @ $14.99.
    Oh, very tasty. It could be my new everyday pour.

    My vote stays with Wild Turkey Rare Breed. For the taste at that price, I say Rare Breed!

    Oh, ye fortunate men and women of bourbonland... In Sweden, a bottle of Jim Beam Black Label sells for $37, and my new favorite, Buffalo Trace, is at a whopping $44!

    My number two but slightly more (yet under $20) would be Knob Creek.

    I wish I could find Knob Creek for less than $20 a bottle. Here in PA KC runs $26 per bottle.

    Re: lower cost, better quality

    I agree! Weller 12 year is superb.. On another note, I made my first trip to the Maker's Mark Lounge on 4th street last night. I tried the Four Roses single barrel and Old Charter Reserve. The Four Roses was delicious. The Old Charter left something to be desired. (Falls City is $0.99 if you are into that!) The Lounge itself is pretty swanky, however I am still partial to the Flagship at the Galt House. Good bourbon to all....
