Well it was a tough decision but here are my top 10 Bourbons under $30 as of 2015. The real issue I had was deciding to choose Elmer T. lee over Knob Creek. Knob Creek is very good and much more available, but I felt if you have the opportunity to buy Elmer T Lee, it should be on your radar. If you can’t find Elmer T. Lee, substitute Knob Creek and you won’t be disappointed.
To see a great definition of “Bourbon” and the differences between “wheated” and “ryed” Bourbons (as well as a review of a 4-Grain Bourbon I vatted and barrel aged myself), go to this link: http://www.newcomerswhisky.com/2015/04/02/whiskey-review-pappy-trevino/
As of 4-03-2015, my current bottle count stands at 1,810 total bottles. I have 991 different ones in the bar & another 819 in back stock. I am a Certified Specialist of Spirits and have also been certified by the Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT). I’ve been actively collecting for the last two decades and what started as a small basic home bar has transformed (with the help and understanding of my wonderful wife) into what I think is a pretty nice collection. Thank you for watching and sharing in my passion.
