Any Bourbon drinkers out there?

I've heard some good things about Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
http://www.buffalotrace.com/

Can't get it up here north of the border but, through a wine distributer I am able to order a case. Would like to hear from someone who knows their stuff and has tried it before I order.

Thanks

If it's under $8 it isn't bourbon.

I'm a big fan of Maker's. It was my first love as a young pup. It's fine now. Still like it a lot, but there's others I'd try ahead of it.

You might be correct. But this bottle will last a while, and it isn't all that bad IF it's mixed.

Buffalo Trace is easily my favorite commonly found bourbon. Prefer it to Makers and maybe $5-10 cheaper per handle.

Really enjoy Buffalo Trace so sounds like I should try Eagle Rare.

I have had it a few times when up in Summit County and pretty good stuff. Didn't realize it had become available everywhere.

Oh yes. Indeed. When I say its 10 year aged single-barrel Buffalo Trace that isn't a comparison or metaphor, I mean it is literally Buffalo Trace that has been aged longer and isn't coming to you blended.

It's not as versatile for imaginative cocktails as Buffalo Trace is because of the increased barrel character (but Eagle Rare still rocks in the classics: old fashioneds, manhattans, boulevardiers, etc), but its markedly better as a straight sipper for the same reason.

Whats a bottle going for of Eagle Trace I might give that one a go next bottle shop stop!

I was over my Moms its been 8 years since Dad passed. Mom said go though his liquor Cabinet and if anything there you want take it or its getting pitched. I just never went through it after he died maybe thinking he might slip back in for a nitecap. Dad didn't have expensive tastes mostly like being a child of the great depression and WWII era. Wasn't really much of a drinker just kept around for guests.
I found some Crow, Jack Black and a variety of McCormick s gins and vodka's and mixers. But the real find was a unopened bottle of Old Grandad bottled in bond 100 proof. I remember sneaking in as a young lad and pouring me a Grandad and mello yellow. I used to keep a bottle around for when felt like putting one on but its getting scarce around now.
******************************************************************
This review made me chuckle.

Purchased at: Virginia ABC Store #338 - Waynesboro, Virginia
Purchased for: $20.28
Info on this bottle: Distilled DSP-KY-230. Bottled DSP-KY-14
Nose: Ruddy copper hued amber. Good viscosity in the bottle with oily slow legs.
Sweet nose overall. Cornbread; vanillia, and nugat, on a backdrop of tobacco smoke and charred oak. Some sharp florals.
Taste: Prickling (not pickling) spices with a mildly tannic tongue assault. Sweetness arrives mid-palete. Not as complex as the nose. Good solid bourbon flavor overall with a ragged start.
Finish: Tannicness continues, but not as strong. Plenty of warmth that should be called 'heat'. Drying oaken decay. Semi-sweet/tart. Smoke on the water.
Overall: AC/DC belting out Highway To Hell slightly out of tune and way too loud. I guess that's why I like it!

Glass - What glass??? I just slugged this shit down straight from the bottle.

It's better that way! Now hop on a Harley-Davidson and put something exciting between your legs!

I've only seen it in Kentucky but a handle of Very Old Barton' s cost around $17 (this was in Bardstown so it may be more elsewhere) and is not a bad session whiskey. Give me a bottle of Rowan' s Creek if I am going to spend money but for my casual drinking or mixed drinks Very Old Barton' s cannot be beat price + tastewise...

Up here I'll pay almost $50 for a bottle of Eagle Rare. I see you guys are looking at around $35.

supposedly I have the option of going to the single oak project website and enter in this bottle I have and give my own review of the bottle. They're trying to find the perfect bourbon with this project and they encourage everyone who buys this put their review in. I'll let you know how it is. Not every liquor store is going to have #1 barrel so that in itself kinda makes it a one of a kind find if you can find it.
