    Re: $100 Challenge

    Using Binny's website as a price guide but applying a 7% percent sales tax, which is typical for this area, I get:

    one bottle of Baby Saz @ 24.06 (on sale right now)
    one bottle of Weller Antique @ 20.32
    one bottle of WTRB @ 38.51
    one bottle of Virgina Lightning @ 17.11 ( I was surprised to see this on their web site)

    That's a hundred bucks.

    Going off of Binny's prices I would get...
    Wild Turkey Rare Breed $35.99
    Pappy Van Winkle 15 yo $44.99
    Four Roses $17.99

    Thats just under a hundred bucks, a little over if you count taxes.

    I'd buy seven 1.75 liter plastic bottles of Barton's Ten High.

    That would easily purchase 8 bottles of Barton's Kentucky Tavern 1.75's to help fill the barrel.

    Re: $100 Challenge

    Just going by my local prices, assuming the cupboard is bare and you're talking strictly American whiskey:

    Elijah Craig 12yo - $19.79
    Old Weller 107 - $19.99
    Wild Turkey Rye - $19.99
    Four Roses yellow label - $19.99
    Fighting Cock - $12.99

    Total: $99.24 after 7% tax.

    Not necessarily the best whiskeys, but give several fairly distinct flavor profiles for the money you wished to spend. Obviously, if we're talking just getting some new stuff, the list would be quite different.
