    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    Thanks! Making it a sticky isn't a bad idea - something for new users to see pretty quickly after they join the forum. I know I wish I had found something like this before making some of the ridiculous purchases I made when I was starting out. What say you, mods?

    I was about to suggest stickying this to the top. Hopefully the Modship agrees.

    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    First of all great post very help full! Wish I would have seen this before I dropped $30 on Woodford.

    I also have a quick question. On this list, is Wild turkey the only rye based bourbon?

    Thanks Mark, for saving me the trouble. Yes, Elmer T. Lee is "Rye'd."

    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    I too found Dan's list most helpful and would cast a vote for making this a sticky.

    Dan, since you broached the subject ... what were some of those "ridiculous purchases" you made early on? Or would you rather not say?

    Also, it is definitely not in that price range in a lot of areas. Here, it is more like $35.

    Going out of my way to spend at least $50 each on the two different older bottles of Jefferson's Reserve (the 15 year old and the "Very Old" 12-17 year old) would certainly make the list.

    Bump for new members, particularly Wineguy, who had a related question on another thread.
