    The most popular bourbon in the state of South Carolina. Owned by the Suntory Group. Not bad for the price.

    Nasty stuff IMO. There are so many better bourbons for not much more money.

    I'll take bourbon as single malt scotch.

    Frankly, anything. I just don't rate Jim Beam. Even good old Jack is far better to my tastebuds.

    Trying to think . . . Four Roses, Buffalo Trace, Maker's Mark. Then they get a little pricey . . .

    I treat myself to the occasional bottle of Woodford. Wonderful stuff at that price.

    I agree on the white label stuff. But, I do like the Jim Beam Black, Double Oak or Rye. Had any of those? I did not care for the Devil's Cut.

    Evan Williams is among the best of inexpensive bourbons.

    Someone commented about Maker’s Mark being slightly more expensive and treating themselves to Woodford.
    I don’t see much price difference in Maker’s and Woodford. I also like Elijah Craig. Buffalo Trace is also good.

    Evan Williams is our day-in-day-out general purpose bourbon. We have a nice library of fine whiskeys, but for a run of the mill cocktail Evan Williams is a great bargain. We will start out sipping a nice one, then if we want to drink more we'll hit the Evan Williams.

    Four roses yellow label easy to find good neat reliable small batch a nice step up.
    Buffalo Trace my go to but too hard to find.
    I usually know when it becomes more available as the company I work for makes the boxes there is a 80 proof version name escapes me something #8 a younger version not bad better than regular Beam in my opinion

    +1 on Woodford.

    Basil Hayden's is a personal favorite...although it can be a bit hard to find.

    A friend gave me a bottle of Bulleit 10 Year I've been enjoying also.

    I've actually taken a break from bourbon for the last few years. Been enjoying Irish a lot, instead.

    I've had the Black, which I didn't rate much either. But I wouldn't turn it down on a cold day . . .

    I like Four Roses Small Batch for the money. Blanton's is overpriced, but still my favorite. Can rarely get it up here in the sticks.

    I just bought Sailor Jerry in South Carolina. I'm an ocean guy. And what's up with liquor stores not selling beer. Fail. Going back to Georgia.

    Blantons or Pappy's for me!

    Can't believe 3-4 years ago, our Local Costco had Blantons for $42 a bottle... If I knew how short lived it was gonna be, I would have bought a pallet.
