At Chicago prices, it would be one of:
Naaaaah, one bottle is too few! Really, there are a whole lot of sub-$30, and even sub-$20 bottles that are Good Stuff. I could add AAA 10 year, Jim Beam Black, Old Fitzgerald BIB, George Dickel #12 (Tennessee), Rittenhouse BIB Rye, standard WT 101, OGD BIB, ERSB 10... you get the picture.
- Sazerac Jr. Rye
- WT Rye
- Weller 12/90
- Weller 7/107
- OGD 114
Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!
I would definitely have to say that my choice is Old Grand-Dad 114...or ORVW 10/107.
Hands down...Makers Mark
Booker's (...or two bottles of Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel for the same price! )
ETL and it was a tough choice!
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.
At this point in my tasting carrier I would choose Saz Jr.
My choice for the rye category: Wild Turkey
" ........" bourbon: Ridgemont Reserve 1792
Four Roses Single Barrel or the Small Batch.
Colonel Joseph B. "Bourbon Joe" Koch
"Bourbon.....It's cheaper than therapy!!"
ORVW 10yr 107. A grand bourbon, and the label is fun to contemplate after a couple of rounds. Tom V
