What's your go-to, reasonably-priced bourbon?
Pic related. This is what my dad used to drink and it was the first bourbon I ever had. Solid stuff. The bonded doesn't seem to be as easy to find these days, though.
I used to always go for Old Crow Reserve. I havent seen it in stock anywhere in half a year or so. Best bottle of burbon you can get for less than 40 and it used to be 18 or so. The Bonded Old Grandand as in op is also a solid choice.
If I want an affordable but fairly good bourbon, I'll go for Buffalo Trace or Woodford Reserve. Jim Beam is plenty good for what it is though, and it doesn't taste like unrefined gasoline like Jack.
I know jack isn't technically bourbon btw
