Not a bourbon drinker here (Scotch/Irish is my game); but the Rare Breed wasn't that bad. I cannot find any Old Forrester here regularly but I did get some 1897 which is well, "fire water." Not a fan. I keep looking for a good bourbon that seems to be worth the markup. So I may use your picture as a starting point .
There is some old Forrester 1920 on top of the safe in the back. it's good stuff. Most of the stuff I have is barrel proof or cask strength so they may turn off someone who's not used to bourbon.Not a bourbon drinker here (Scotch/Irish is my game); but the Rare Breed wasn't that bad.

I used to chase bourbons looking for "the best". When the boom hit a few years ago and there were dozens of new brands constantly popping up I came to the realization that there's no need to spend lots of money for a good, drinkable bourbon.
i've had MANY a snob belly up to my bar and drink out of the bottles of "good stuff" and go home drunk and happy. Only a couple of them know that I refill the bottles with Very old Barton:
Opinions are well you know, if Woodford is swill to you there isnt much to say except I like swill!! But I also like PBR so there's that.........Woodford would be swill too if it wasn’t for the fact it’s the best thing you can get at any random bar or restaurant in the US. It’s a mediocre bourbon at best. Basil Hayden, Buffalo Trace, and Angels Envy are in the same price range and absolutely shame it. Like showing up to a gang bang where all the rest of us are packing 8+ with your 3” thunder thimble.
If it got Clarence Emil "Bud" Anderson through WW2 as a fighter ace its good enough for me.
Bourbon for Old Fashions and Rye for Manhattans.I was always told Rye for old fashioned old fashions.
Dammit! I was late!November 23, 2016 – On November 17 the EAA AirVenture Museum was fortunate to host triple ace Col. Clarence “Bud” Anderson for the Museum Speaker Series before a crowd of more than 250 people. ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]Anderson...inspire.eaa.org
Regular Beam is $18 a handle at Costco.Not much into Bourbon but Bullet at about $31/750 ml is ok and not disastrously expensive (and yeah, fuck Pappy's). Its a bit of a sweet aftertaste that some object to.
Four Roses is even cheaper at about $25/750 ml and is serviceable, IMO.
Old Crow....about $18/1.75 L!!!
Hell, after the first drink, who can tell! haha
1 was good, 2 was ok, 3 was really good, 4 is ok. The thing about Little Book is they are experimental batches. Just have to go into them knowing that they are Freddie's science experiments. I prefer most batches of Bookers to all 4 Little Books.02/2020 Bookers was as good as any little book I've tried. Ive had 1 and 4, own #3 but haven't opened it.
Add some Colt 45, TJ Swan, Cold Duck chasers to that deadly brew and bring on the headaches.You folks have much finer tastes in the hootch you drink than me.
I would suggest that you kick that Burpon to the curb, go to the liquor store and get you some fine stuff like, Old Milwaukee or Busch Lite and leave those headaches behind.
