my significant other and i embarked on a similar mission last year with pinot grigios and it looks like this time we're looking for good bourbons. so far i like: -bulleit frontier bourbon -wild turkey 80,101, rare breed -buffalo trace -old charter 10/12 year -ancient age of these, so far bulleit is the taste to beat (for me). i've been suggested and plan on trying soon: -ridgemont reserve 1792 -maker's mark -knob creek so now i ask, what is your preference? i'm looking to stay in the same price bracket if possible as the above bourbons. thanks!
