I'll bring a bottle of Woodford Double Oaked home for you to try.
Bookers, Knob, or Woodford for me.
If I'm mixing, its usually a mint julep or old fashioned.
Elmer T Lee has become my go to lower end bourbon. I like Blantons when I can afford it. Where does one find the Eagle Rare 17? I have been trying to find a bottle for a while now.
All my friends love their different bourbons, scotch, and such...I stick with my Budweiser and the occasional Corona-Octoberfest.

1. Pappy (hand down the best on market, but expensive and hard to find)
2. Four Roses Single Barrel (best bourbon for the money IMO)
3. Buffalo Trace
4. Knob Creek
Willett Bourbon. Thank me later.
My Top 3, in no particular order:
That being said, I have never been able to find a bottle of Van Winkle. I do want one, very badly. In fact, if anyone knows where to find one, feel free to PM me.
So I moved to TN from NC not long ago. Craft beer is my primary poison followed by scotch, but TN has a poor selection of beer and scotch can be pricey.
On the flip side, the bourbon selection is vast in this area and new to me. There have been many recommendations in this thread but I don't want to drop $70 on a bottle at this time. Can the bourbon aficionados who are familiar with bourbon distributed in the Nashville area recommend their favorite bottles under $50 and under $40. I'm not not experienced with bourbon outside of lower tier standard stuff when I was in college and Makers. Thanks in advance.
Woodford Reserve, my man. It has a complexity that rivals some scotches. Pour a few ounces over 2-4 ice cubes and find what amount if ice/melt suits you. Take a sip, savor the flavor, swallow. It's a great bourbon.

Have you tried the Yazoo beers? I'm in Nashville too. I've been satisfied with the beer selection, minus Abita beers being hard to find. If you haven't been I'd recommend a trip to the Flying Saucer in Franklin and their beer sampler. Blantons Single Barrel is around $50,it's good stuff. I'm gonna get some Woodford this weekend after this thread and give it a try.
Yazoo does some good things. I appreciate what they do and I always support my local breweries. Otherwise, I admit to being overly critical and snobby about beer. The selection is fine just not what I'm used to. I feel like I've had Woodford before but don't remember anything about. Maybe I'll start there then work my way into the small batch stuff.
You kind of hit the nail on the head. I will always buy yazoo and support yazoo, because I want people to look at that model and say "we can do this in Mississippi" (though Yazoo is in TN i believe?) and I reccomend everyone drink a bunch of it.... but Yazoo doesn't really hold up compared to a lot of craft breweries out there
Very difficult question. Pappy is the best but I can't afford it. If I place the selection from my liquor cabinet in order it would be..... Woodford Double Oaked, Blanton's, Woodford, Russell's Reserve, Basil Haden, Knob Creek, and if I am feeling the spirit I will get into the Bookers. At 128+ proof It only takes one of those.
There are some wonderful bourbons being produced right now. But Im an Old Charter 8 year guy. I've given the common and reasonably priced bourbons a shot but Charter has been a mainstay for the last decade. And for those who choose to mix coke with their bourbon, I suggest H2O, ginger ale, or mix up an old fashioned or manhattan for a change of pace. There's nothing better than a properly made Old Fashioned. Too sweet for many to have a second but one good drink is worth it!
