Yeah not right to fuck with a classic. I miss Marty's rankings. These guys were singing praises of Makers, ...probably could've picked up Pappy off the shelf in 2010

Shit was so cheap back then, and I had so much disposable income.

Matty, do your current rankings.
Maybe I'll do one of my own too, but would have to keep it to no barrel proofs, commonly found, under $50 retail maybe :thinking: would get complicated.

I was reading first pages. Tron: I'm 38 with kids. can't be drinking everyday :lol: we've spent a good chunk of our lives here :cheers:

illy was a kid from Texas, early 20s young, was into hip hop and getting high

boingers was I think a post separation rubyn, can't recall the timeline

:bottom:

I'll love you forever and ever, you big jerkface. Thank you for giving me the funnest 5 years of my life thus far.

And no, my previous post wasn't a strike of any kind. I know that it isn't conventional for two people to end a relationship (or marriage) on a friendly note, but it shouldn't surprise anyone that we would take a different route than most.

FYI these lists are several years old and I don't agree with either of my #1s anymore but I need to refresh my memory and my palate before moving a bunch of them around.

Four Roses Single Barrel went way up and Buffalo Trace way down.

Wife is at the liquor store right now picking up a regular Four Roses.

:cripwalk:

Regular Four Roses is a bit rougher than I remember. Lots of young corn on the palate. Still works great as a mixer.

I would go with 5-3-9-7-10-2. ..out of your top bourbons

2-9-7-5-3-10 value wise. I don't know how old Elijah Craig is these days, but I doubt it's 12

Yeah Elijah Craig doesn't have an age statement anymore, haven't tried the new bottling yet.
