My friends and fellow gentleman, i find my supply of liquid levity growing disturbingly low. Can any of you recommend a good bourbon at a decent price? For reference, i would consider up to $50 a "decent price". I do like a good scotch now and then, but i really am more of a bourbon drinker, straight up. To get a feel for my tastes, i have found that i enjoy Dickel's Original and Wild Turkey (yes, the original lighter fluid). I'm curious about Jim Beam Devil's Cut, and i would like to know some good suggestions for wheated bourbons. Really, the only thing i've found i don't like is Bulleit Bourbon (although i do enjoy their rye. Odd.)

Maker's Mark and Knob Creek are the premium Bourbons in the bars around here. Booker's (Jim Beam small batch) is pretty good. It's a little hot at 121-130 proof.

Yes I keep bookers and makers mark and am liking wild turkey " American honey " these days .

Woodford Reserve is a brand of premium small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey produced by the Brown-Forman Corporation. I drink it straight, on the rocks, splash of water and I am sure a few will fall over but with a little Coke a Cola as well and for drinking bourbon its about as good as it gets for the price.

Buffalo Trace Distillery is a distillery located in Frankfort, Kentucky that I enjoy equally as well and can also be enjoyed as described above.

Good Luck...

Devil's Cut and Four Roses are good if you like a smoother "cooler" bourbon, both at good prices.  If you're like me and prefer a bit more kick, I honestly have not found anything I like more than Knob Creek.  They make a few different batches, some have a higher proof, and most, if not all, should be in that price range.  

Try Wild Turkey Rare Breed, barrel proof.

Makers is my preference for a bourbon most bars carry, but Basil Haydens is in my personal stash, and and I'm going to a cheap party, I grab a bottle of Evan Williams green label. All are great options for under $50.

I will second the Wild Turkey 101 suggestion. This is what I keep in my bar and I look for good value and good quality when buying alcohol. You can buy something better but dollar for dollar the 101 is hard to beat.

Sad, my first preference in a better sipping brand that is under $50 would be Bulleit. Not sure on the prices of Willet, Hancock's President's Reserve or Prichards Double Barrel. If I am not drinking one of those 4 I will be mixing which means Rebels Yell or Old Granddad.

I would lean to Knob Creek, it isn't bad and is not too expensive
"Angel's Envy." - If your local distributors provide it, it's the smoothest Kentucky straight bourbon I've had under 50 bucks ( I think its around 42.) Absolutely worth a try.
