The Jim Beam Tour is pretty fantastic. Gives you a sense of the real scale of what they do. Here are photos/etc I took: http://www.drinkspirits.com/bourbon/visit-jim-beam/

Your thoughts? Been trying to get something new every week! I think I found a winner no matter what price range! It's good

That Kirkland 7 year is not bad either, but would be better if it mellowed just a wee bit longer, it can be a little edgy.

Giving this one a try! I have to admit this one is really good for the price.

OK. .. so I've been buying and trying a different bottle of bourbon every week for a couple months now. I haven't found one I dislike, but the the rare breed is really top of my list right now. I haven't really got into the more expensive bourbon yet, but for under 40 range this may be my favorite so far. . thought I would update my thoughts. .. I'm currently (as I type this) enjoying a Woodford Reserve, but wishing I had poured the turkey instead

Wild Turkey 101
I decided to pick up a bottle and give it a try. Impressed. I can always remember going to the 80 proof version in my younger days, not even sure if I ever really tasted it, but it took care of that buzz I was looking for.
Anyway, I really like this version.I'm a little older now and actually enjoy the flavor it offers.Maybe I'm just trying to taste it for the first time :) very smooth flavor with a nice(may last a bit long) burn down the throat. The smooth vanilla/caramel taste on first sip is addictive though! Your thoughts guys? Gals?

Wild Turkey 101 is amazing stuff. One of the most under-rated bourbons out there.

What's your favorite mixer? I enjoy the taste of bourbon straight, but curious what others enjoy..makers mark with coke is a must..but what about your Manhattan?

I know I'm late to this.. I was actually in Lexington when this was posted, at the Rolex, with a flask of Woodford Double Oak. 

For a mixer, I use Larceny if I want sweeter or Elijah Craig if I want a bit more spice.

Decent, but lacks some of the rye/spice I like.
