I'm new to the forums, and to bourbon, as will probably be clear in about one more sentence and I'm looking for some specific advice about what would be a good choice to get me started. I'm looking to spend up to 50 pounds, but ideally less, on two bottles from www.thedrinkshop.com. So if anyone's willing to give me some advice it would be appreciated... the best thing would be for two bottles which are different enough to give me an idea of the range of bourbons available (if that's even close to possible from two bottles). From looking around the forums I've seen a variety of suggestions, such as Knob Creek, Wild Turkey, Bulleit, Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, Elijah Craig and Maker's Mark but I can't seem to make up my mind. I'm probably looking for one bottle of a more 'traditional' and typical bourbon and another of something slightly unusual if that helps at all.
Thanks in advance,
