Hard to go wrong with either of those. Elijah Craig is solid, too, but may be closer to $60.

Bulleit is another good option that is sub$50 after tax.

Not sure how I forgot about this one. I’d take it over the others, personally.

That’s an odd price point for a 1.75.

Knob Creek.

Everyone’s Palate is different.

If you don’t like your whiskey neat, there’s no reason to even spend that much.

Very Old Barton 86 proof or Henry Mckenna (not the 10 year) for the win.

I will drink it neat!

Did a favor for a friend of my wife, this woman is dead set on buying me a nice bottle of Bourbon even though I told her no need to do that.
She has plenty of $$ but I do not want to take advantage of her so I set the $50.00 spending limit.

Jeffers Creek, very light & smooth. Excellent for sipping neat. If you can find it, about $50 for a 1.75 li at Twin Liquors.

Eagle Rare is my current favorite. 4 Roses is good too. Got a bottle of Buffalo Trace last week for $25. I haven't tried it yet. I hear Bird Dog is really good and only like $20

In the large bottles, for that price, I'd look for Weller Special Reserve or Larceny. Larceny probably easier to find.

Haven't been able to find Larceny since October. I've gone to Makers Private in its absence...

I picked up a bottle of Makers Mark Cask Strength and I don't know if it was just the cigar but for 110 proof it went down easy. I liked it a lot...

Love Four Roses, but don't forget Willet too. Of course I haven't seen what American prices have gotten to for a while either.
