I'm still very new to the bourbon world and so far I've only had Old Granddad 114, AAA 10 yr old, Rittenhouse Rye 100 BIB, Buffalo Trace, and of course the Beams. I need some guidance on what to suggest for my birthday when asked. I need a list since lots of these bottles are sorta hard to find. What I've managed to come up with so far is as follows:

  • W.L. Weller 12 Year Old
  • Wild Turkey 101 proof
  • Wild Turkey Rare Breed
  • Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
  • Evan Williams Single Barrel (1995 if possible)
I know I also want some iteration of Elijah Craig and Van Winkle but not sure which. I figure since I won't be paying I can splurge a little :-) Thanks!
