    50 bucks

    found a new liquor store that has a tremendous selection, own barrel of ETL, all WT, some PVW RHF, you name it. Im going with 50 bucks how should I spend it. The best single bottle, 2 mids what do you think, Remember i am a noob and have had only a handful of some of the midshelfers.

    Eagle Rare 10 Year Single Barrel & ETL would be good choices for a total of under $50. William Larue Weller or PVW 15 year would be great single bottle choices under $50...

    I would certainly go for two mid priced bottles.

    If I only had fifty bucks, go for value. As much variety as you can get as well. ETL and ER101 get my vote.

    Depending on prices in your area this might put you just above $50. But I would recommend WT RB (a very good rye heavy bourbon) and Old Weller Antique (a wheater, and a damn good bargain for the 17 bucks in my neck of the woods.)

    How much is PVW15 in Wyoming? It is $50-$60 here, if you can even find it here...

    As someone "new" to bourbon, I would suggest a couple of mid shelfers. And then, a couple of more and a couple more, until you just can't stand it any longer and just Have to get one of those top shelfers. And if you just Have to, skip straight to the big boys!

    Have fun!

    Sinc your a newbie, I'd go for two bottles. The ones above wpuld be great choices. If you want more of a contrast, substitute Old Grand Dad 114 for the ER.
