    IMHO, the top 5 out there...

    1) GT Stagg
    2) Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    3) Rock Hill Farms
    4) OGD 114
    5) EC 12

    I tend to really like the high proof/barrel proof bourbons. Rock Hill and EC12 don't fit that mold but I do like 'em a lot.

    Alright need everyone's top 5 opinion. I'm tryin to pick up some good bourbon tomorrow thinkin of one of these... baker's,bookers,pappy 15, old weller atique 107. Been drinkin ogd114 and love it, bought eagle rare 10 yrs old today, doest really compare to ogd. Saw pappy 23 today for 299.99, it better be miracle water or something..
    Out of what you listed, I'd pick the Old Weller Antique 107, a very nice pour.

    We kind of did this once before but with 10 (March 2006). I love numbers...have no clue why. When we did the top 10 we finished with 46 voters who listed a total of 116 different bottles. Just for fun, the top 5 finishers back then were:

    1) WT RR 101 (17 votes)
    2) ORVW 15 (16 votes)
    3) VW Lot B (16 votes)
    4) GT Stagg (15 votes)
    5) Bookers, VW 15, ETL (all had 13 votes)

    So far we have 17 folks (39 bottles) and this threads top 5 are:

    1) ETL (9)
    2) VW 15 (8)
    3) ODD 114 (7)
    4) GT Stagg (7)
    5) WT RR 101 (6)

    I know the numbers really don't mean much, but I enjoy seeing what people like. It has directed some of my purchase's when I have a choice...led me to OGD 114, which I really enjoy.
    I am sure some bottles get limited attention because they are difficult to find or cost prohibitive. I know here in WA we don't have the selection that some other States have, but I was pleased to learn that on the top 10 list (which had 13 bottles) I have access here in WA. to all but 2 of the bottles. So when I originally came to this site to find out more, obviously I value the opinions here to some extent, it was nice for me to learn I can act on some of those opinions and sample some fine Bourbons.
    Our tastes cover a wide spectrum...good think we have so much choice.

    My favorite on your list is Bookers...it hits me so incredibly well. Nice fruity nose, hits my tongue like hot caramel...and stays there.

    The problem for me in making a top five is that it could easily become a top ten, or a top fifteen - and my preferences can change at any time.

    All of these are in random order.

    If cost/availability isn't an object:
    American: GTS, Sazerac 18, VWFRR 13, ORVW 15/107, Hirsch 16
    Scotch: Ardbeg 1977, Glenrothes 1974, Highland Park 18, Campbeltown Loch 25, Alloa 40 single-grain

    Readily available and/or low price:
    American: Weller Antique, Rittenhouse BIB, WT Rye, WTRB, Buffalo Trace
    Scotch: Ardbeg 10, Aberlour 10, Highland Park 12, Compass Box Asyla, Clynelish 14
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Top 5. Hmmm. For me this is difficult. My top two are easy:

    (1) Elijah Craig 18 year old (poured some tonight. mmmmmm)
    (2) Eagle Rare 10 year old
    (3) Booker's

    the next three are more of a challenge, as these don't stand out from the group like those two did...

    (4) Blantons
    (5) Elmer T. Lee
