    I have a bottle of Bulleit in the house and like it, but a couple of friends have introduced me to bourbons that are much better but far more expensive than I am willing to pay. Now that Bulleit has risen in price I drink Woodford Reserve for just $1 more where I stock up on whiskies.

    Eagle Rare 10 is in the same price range as Woodford Reserve. Check it out.

    that's my favorite

    evan williams single barrel can usually be found cheap-ish, and is really good, too (like under $25 a bottle).....4 roses single barrel is usually fairly cheap and drinks well

    Lately I've been on a Weller's binge. It's a wheat bourbon and really smooth. They have a 107 proof that with a splash of water is really good.

    Woodford's, Eagle Rare, Bulleit, all very drinkable.

    For special occasions my go to is Eagle Rare 17 or a local favorite, Peach Street (from Grand Junction). That there is some smooth stuff, but for the price it should be.

    I tried a wheat bourbon recently. Really, really did not like.

    Woodford's seems like it oozes from my pores the day after. Maybe it's too bourbony for me . I did like Buffalo Trace though.

    If you've never had a good rye you really should try this.
    I don't know. I'm not sold on it. I might try it on the rocks and see how it goes.

    That's what makes horse racing and whiskey preferences.

    BTW: Re wheat bourbons - the only one I like is Angel's Envy, but not enough to keep it on hand.
