    Rank these in order of your preference:

    Please rank the following in order according to your personal preference. I have not tried any of the bourbons listed.
    I'm trying to find a solid bargain bourbon (receipts from the liquor store for BT, ORVW and ETL have made my wife suspicious). Your input is greatly appreciated!

    1. Old Grand-Dad BIB 100
    2. Ancient Age (80 proof, standard bottling)
    3. Evan Williams Black (86 proof, standard bottling)
    4. Benchmark
    5. Rebel Yell
    X. (insert your favorite inexpensive bourbon <$15)

    Re: Rank these in order of your preference:

    For me hands down Old Grand Dad BIB sits at the top of the list...but here in WA it is at least $5 more than the rest of the bottles on your list going for $19.05. The rest are under $15. Maybe I'm splitting hairs with the price? As far as flavor for price...the rest on the list would be a push for me.
    At least here in WA., my favorite budget Bourbon would be JTS Brown at $11.35 or Henry Mckenna at $13.35, I enjoy both of those more than the remaining 4 on your list.

    I love that whiskey, but it isn't available at all in Michigan. I stock up when I go to Colorado, though.

    According to the MI LCC these would be my 5 picks

    AA 10Star
    Very Old Barton 90
    Old Forester 86
    Old Grand Dad (your BIB is above the $15 cutoff)
    Old Fitz Prime

    Re: Rank these in order of your preference:

    My first choice would be Grand Dad BIB. My second choice would be a BIB from Heaven Hill, any of the usual choices, EW, Brown, Dant, et al.

    I just like 80 proof Very Old Barton. Just drinks good for me.
