    just one bottle?

    I just caught myself reminiscing about when I first fell in love with good bourbon. At the time I could not afford more than about $30 for a bottle, and my wife thought it was extravagant to have more than one bottle in the house at a time. Which led me to wonder:
    If you could have only one bottle of bourbon, and it had to cost less than $30, what would it be?

    I am torn between BT, and EW SB, but the EWSB holds a slight edge for me.

    Forgive me if this has been asked before, but I could not figure out how to search for the topic.

    Re: just one bottle?

    With the discontinuation of WTRR101, which has been my favorite pour, I'd go with Old Forester BIB. If I can cheat and also pick up a bottle of Tennesee whiskey, put me down as well for a bottle of Dickel No. 12.

    Some of this might vary depending upon where you live/shop. Here, the WTRR 101 went for about $28, and is the only thing I can think of that would have given me any pause in answering, back then too, OGD 114.

    I'd agree with Big Chipper, but since I can't get ORVW 10/107 around here, I'll go with ERSB.

    Old Charter 13yo $24...put away that extra $6 every time and save up for a nicer bottle.

    At under $30, for me it would come down to either Knob Creek or RR90.

    WT 101, mostly because WTRR 101 is no longer available and even on sale WT RB is just over 30 dollars.

    WT Rare Breed, counting myself fortunate that it prices out at just under $30 with tax in my neck of the woods.
