I appreciate everyone's comments here.  I've drank single malt scotch for several years and only recently started down the bourbon trail after not having any for about 25 years since some bad experiences while at the University of Tennessee :)

I've had and liked, but not been able to find for purchase, Blanton's, Eagle Rare and Buffalo Trace, as well as Pappy 15.  Other's I've liked and bought are Weller's Special Reserve and Antique 107, Booker's (after finishing an old bottle my dad bought for me 20 years ago), Whistlepig Rye 10 year, IW Harper, and a few others that aren't coming to mind.

I've also had Basil Hayden and Four Roses Single Barrel that I didn't care for, though that was NYE and after several bottles of wine and champagne.

A good book that helped me understand the history and making of bourbon is Bourbon Straight: The Uncut and Unfiltered Story of American Whiskey.

I also found out about tasting using the "Kentucky Chew", which I've found to be enlightening.  (Not dissimilar to tasting wine, which I've also collected for several years).

I think a trip to KY or WVa may be in order to try to scout out bottles that are in short supply or not distributed in Ohio.

Had another drop off of 8 ER bottles for me today.

The 1792 full proof is a good bottle for 45 bucks if you can find it. I saw a couple shady stores pushing it for 79.99 which isnít the regular price.

had the 1792 full proof some time ago but much prefer the small batch over it. I believe it's roughly $35ish around here.

Same. I just cracked a 1792 FP SP and Iím not a fan at all. Virtually no oak qualities, tastes like koolaid.
