The hard stuff and Weaze.
« on: June 18, 2010, 10:55:33 PM »
  Feel in love with Elijah Gray bourbon, while camping in the mountains in Idaho. So, here I am in Ohio, and walk into the state store. I looked everywhere for this lovely fire nectar from the gods, but found none. So, I ask the dude, and he looks at me like I have 2 heads. Never heard of the stuff! Man am I bummed. So, I settled on a bottle of Red Stag, and (flame suit on) LOVE IT!!
 
     Look for random, meaningless post in the next few hours........ ;D

I think you meant to say Elijah Craig. I knew what you meant. The guy at the cure store wouldn't have known anyway.

Yeah, because $60 for a bottle of bourbon is exactly how I want to spend my money. ;)

For the price, Elijah Craig is unbeatable IMHO. Their 18 year is great too.

Buffalo Trace is another good one that won't break the bank.

Elijah Craig fan here too.  My state store only sells it in the 1.5L bottle.  ;D

All mentioned are so far are good. I recently had a bottle of Elmer T. Lee and liked it, too. My dad loves 1792 and Woodford Reserve.

But for a daily drink, you can't beat Jim Beam or Maker's Mark!

But for the same price, you could drink something good!  ;D

Good to mix, terrible to drink straight.

For a moderate priced bourbon, I've been liking Ezra B 12 yo single barrel lately.  When I want to spend a little more, Blantons has recently been hitting the spot.

Best Mixen' Bourbon there is IMO.  JB Black is pretty decent straight though.

I'm going to see if this Elijah Craig is available in my area.  Otherwise I am a Makers Mark fan moreso than Knob.

I like W.L. Weller for a moderate price bourbon.  Runs around 14.99 a bottle which is modest.  I liked Elijah Craig too as I recall.  Come to think of it, once past a certain pricepoint below which they tend to be harsh firewater, or just kind of bland, I like most bourbons!

That's been my go-to cheaper bourbon lately.  Good and pretty cheap!
