My tastes are often torn between bourbon and rye whiskeys because I love the sweetness of the bourbon AND the spicy goodness of the rye. Enter Basil Hayden’s with its higher rye content, giving a little more spice than many other bourbons. It’s good to sip and wonderful in Manhattans.

One of my favorites. Didn't see Four Roses Small Batch, my all-time favorite.

Perfect bourbon for a bourbon newbie. Not too harsh and has some scotch properties. This'll ease you in to the good American bourbon culture!

This stuff is great. Was recommended to me from my buddy in the boonies in kc (I'm a city guy), and I was told my a stranger "Nice choice!" in the elevator of my hotel. Did not disappoint, can be drank straight at room temp without the slightest cringe. Perfection at a low price.

On the rocks, or in an old fashioned, this smooth bourbon may be the best I've had so far.
