    You and I would be great friends as neighbors bro. Thanks for the reply pal.

    I just opened up my Elmer T. Lee after a long close out month last night. I have to say. I was not impressed.

    It's about $55-60USD for 700ml here, depending on the FX rate (which is rapidly falling out of our favor!)

Also have a barrel aged vodka called Starka by a micro-distiller in St Louis called Cardinal Sin. It's lighter than a typical bourbon but still very good. Check em out!

    Evan Williams is abundantly available in Canada. Blantons is a bit harder to buy, but when it shows up its about 10 bottles per store here in Ontario (LCBO is the Government run retailer who sells all alcohol).

    Guys, what's a good mid-range Bourbon to try? Something around $50 - $80 USD.

    Depends where you live. Is you're looking for some great bourbon that's mid range then grab a bottle of Eagle Rare. It exceeds lots of bourbons in the hundreds of dollar range. If been drinking a lot of Four Roses single barrel lately. I've been hooked on it! If you can find Colonel H. Taylor, or Blanton's then pick up as many as you can and call me
    I’m late to the party on this thread, but I’d second Doc’s suggestion of Eagle Rare. Tremendous bang for your buck and a very underrated bourbon in comparison to the higher priced ones. I probably prefer it to Blanton’s. I’d also recommend Whistle Pig (and their many variations) as a mid priced good option!

    I am a big fan of FR Small batch and their regular blend but I finally got a Single Barrel and that has a bit of "fire" compared to the rest! Still a big fan of FR Small Batch as a good occasional drinker.

    I got a bottle of Blantons for my birthday last year but just havent opened it yet, my parents got a bottle as well as we enjoyed some of that.

    I mean can RWI get any better. Watches and now Bourbon. Great post here. As if I haven’t spent enough on watches here - I’m now keen to give some of the bottles posted here a try.
    I go between Bourbons and Whisky.
    Used to have all the variations of Jack (gentleman, silver select etc ) Woodford now my go to. Also love whisky too though - have a McAllen black rare cask and one of my favourites is signet by glenmorangie. Will be on the lookout for some Blanton’s now.
