Im new to these forums, but having fun reading so far!
My question is, i have a new boss at work and he loves bourbon as much as i do.
He wants me to go down the shop and pick up a bottle to share of a fri night.
I want to slightly impress him without going in the $100 dollar mark, but the run of the mill (crap tasting) Jim Beam wont work!
What is worth looking at between say $50 to $75 dollar mark?
Im in australia, adelaide to.
I have thought about Eagle rare or makers mark, maybe even gentleman Jack. all under the $70 dollar mark.
Any other ideas?
Buffalo Trace - smooth, nice gentle touch of rye and is really approachable.
W.L.Weller - same mash bill as the legendary Pappy Van Winkle range, is a classic crowd pleaser
Blantons straight from the barrel - more aggressive than the previous two with a dusty popcorn style, it is at a highly alcohol volume but worth a good punt!
Not sure about the availability of these in Australia (i'm writing from the UK) but hope it helps!
That Russell's Reserve 10 has the factor imo.

Likewise. I'd add:
Wild Turkey Rare Breed $71.99 (classic balance and taste)
Baker's $69.90 (a little young tasting, but spicy and substantial)
There's plenty of online sites in Australia with a larger range than DM but nothing you'd get by today. The sites listed on my blog sell bourbon as well.
