    That WT Rare Breed is worth it.
    I decided to give this a shot, as well as some variety of Michters single cask that was on sale.

    Bourbon is so much cheaper than scotch, I might have to switch.

    FWIW Basil Hayden Toast was on sale at craft as well, and I found that reasonably tasty.

    I prefer bourbons now, only because they taste better haha.

    I still like Scotch

    I drink Irish Whiskey and Bourbon around the house. Used to drink a lot of rye, but needed a break from that. Fuck the IrnBru bastards and thier silly pricing.

    Angels Envy is a better deal there right now.

    Cracked open my Wild Turkey Rare Breed last night, it was a pleasant surprise. Excellent for the price.

    Opposite here in Spain. Bourbon and Canadian whiskies are super expensive compared to Canada whereas Scotch is much cheaper in Europe.

    I typically find bourbons very similar and overly sweet but I will need to explore them more.

    I'm only adding to this thread because I landed this JD Bonded for 16 yesterday (32 with 50% store credit at my Supermarket). While not technically a Bourbon (according to JD, anyway), I enjoy a good Sour Mash and the extra proof will kick it up a notch.

    I bought a bottle of Bib & Tucker 6 year before Christmas and finally cracked into it on New Years Eve. It was amazing, this is exactly what I envision the textbook definition of Bourbon is. Its super smooth with a great nose and mouth feel. The website describes the flavour profile as: "leads with a scent of vanilla and sweet hay, accented by sandalwood and mace" and besides the mace, I would say that is pretty bang on. So far this is top 5 Bourbons in my collection

    What are the other top ones in your collection? Starting to build up a nice stash myself and interested in trying some new stuff.

    Yo bro, are you from that goat Calgary car forum that get salty over lawn care, land rovers and circumcisions? That's straight fire.

    Eagle Rare is my all-time favorite for sure. I also really really enjoy The Garrison Brothers Small Batch, Hudson's Baby Bourbon (but they don't make it anymore so I guess we can't count it), Wyoming Whiskey's Small Batch or Private Stock Bourbon, and Michter's Straight Bourbon. I've got about 15 different bottles at any given time but you can't go wrong with any of those.

    Honorable mention goes to Blantons (if you can find it), TX Texas Straight Bourbon, and Bull Run Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

    I bought a bottle of Yellow Rose Outlaw Bourbon I am excited to try, and I am told Boulder Spirits out of Colorado makes a pretty good one too.

    If you guys ever venture to Nevada, bring back a bottle of Two Bitch Bourbon, Eureka Gold. It's like $35USD and absolutely fantastic. Everyone who has tried it laughs at the label and then quickly astounded how good it is. Hell if someone is going back to Nevada I'd happily take another bottle!

    Some scotches are easily as smooth and sweet as bourbons. Glenmorangie Extremely Rare quickly comes to mind.

    Got a new one to try while in TX. Really like the first glass. Not alcohol forward and not too spicy.
