    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    Excellent list, Dan. I only have a couple to add.

    From Heaven Hill:
    Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    From Tennessee:
    George Dickel #12

    aching to try that RR 101...i know it's a goner, but hear there are still bottles out there. i thought the 90 was already STELLAR!

    and yes to that Weller 107...what a bargain
    The RR 90 is garbage. Just wait until you get those lips around a snifter of the 101. You'll think you died and went to heaven.

    Thanks, Mark. I would second your recommendation of Dickel #12. I think it's the best nonpremium (aka not small batch, single barrel, etc.) Tennessee Whiskey on the market.

    I wonder if the current DSP-1 version of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond would be a good bottling to add to the list? Any thoughts?

    I wrote about my experiences with DSP-KY-1/31 here:

    Hopefully I just got ahold of some recent bottles that were anomalies, and that there is some good 'current' OFBIB.

    Howdy,

    I keep many of these on my shelf. JBB, WT101 (although my bottle is reading low), Dickels 12 (I'm not terribly impressed) and even JBW, although I prefer Black label. FWIW, of these aforementioned, I prefer JBB.

    Eggman

    PS: For that matter, I slightly prefer JBB to Knob Creek, but maybe I should give KC a few more tastes.

    Thanks Dan, good list. I only wish all of them were available in Oregon.

    Thanks for the bump. I'm compiling lots of what I've read here to make a shopping/wish list so see what I can find on my travels. Kind of like an adult easter egg hunt if you will.
