    Please have a look at Booker's, Baker's, Knob Creek, Blanton's and Woodford Reserve.

    Kind regards, Horst Luening, Master Taster,

    @cam10159 I wish I enjoyed bourbon as much as I love scotch! I do enjoy bourbon, but i can only drink one or two before I get bored with it. The great thing about bourbon is the price! At least here in America anyway, i cant speak for other countries. I would recommend Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, Angels Envy, Michters Straight Bourbon, and Four Roses Single Barrel. All of these bottles are affordable and delicious.

    I like both Bulleit Bourbon and Buffalo Trace. The have differing finishes, with Trace having a hint more vanilla. 

    I also found myself liking the Bulleit 95 Rye. Seems I personally lean toward the stuff with more kick lol
