Don't get me wrong- it's absolutely terrific stuff and an excellent value. I'm not knocking the product at all. I'm just trying to warn you that it's a bit 'deep end' for a first bourbon to try. Coming from the world of Scotch, it might frighten you away from some of the bourbons that might be a little more familiar/accessible to you.

Giving serious thought to buying the Buffalo Trace Exp. Being at work with nothing to do is bad for my wallet

Gotcha. Any experience with this non-experimental one?

The buffalo trace should be good. Consensus has it that this is a well priced and great tasting bourbon. I have never tasted it, nor is it available to me here in Montreal. However, if it were, I would have it without a doubt.

It's been one of my favorites for some time, though 4 Roses Small Batch is in the same price range and is simply finger lickin' good. I really feel it has taken over being my favorite as a very damn good bourbon with an everyday price.

Right now I'm sipping on a Weller SR 7yr. A wheater!

BT is good bourbon. I actually wasn't too fond of my 1st bottle and the next one settled in very well. If you're not used to bourbon then the rye content might be a tad much.

Picked up a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye Bottled in Bond per many recommendations in this thread. I'm anxious to give it a try later tonight! (I am aware it is not a Bourbon. )

I like the BT. Can't get it in Jersey though so I sip sparingly.

An outstanding, inexpensive bourbon is Old Weller Antigue. It was a 7 year-old,107 proof, wheated bourbon. Recently, the age statement was removed when the Buffalo Trace Distillery redesigned the bottle and label. I tried the bourbon in the new bottle and I believe that it is even better. My fear was that Buffalo Trace may have started using younger bourbon and the taste would be inferior. The distillery stated that the bourbon is still 7 years old.

Another very good and inexpensive bourbon is Very Old Barton 100 proof. Unfortunately, it has very limited distribution.

A few years ago, there was a 15 year old Jefferson Reserve which was excellent. Subsequently, they started using younger bourbon and I thought that it was inferior.

The Jefferson's Presidential Select 17 yr old bourbon is excellent. I have had batches 1 and 2. They were great; however, they are expensive. Controversy continues concerning the source of the bourbon and if it is in fact Stitzel Weller bourbon. Personally, I don't care. I like it.

Thanks for the tip Doug ! I will be on the lookout for Old Weller.

I've done a lot of events with Jefferson's Reserve. Good people, and great bourbon. I have enjoyed all of their lines including Sam Houston, Jefferson's, Jefferson's Reserve, and the Presidential Select. The PS is awesome, but yes, expensive.
