Anyone have a suggestion for a bottle of bourbon in the $30 range? It's a gift for a friend that just moved to USA. I typically drank Basil Hayden but I'm not sure if there is anything better in that range.

Slic.

I would just get the basil Hayden, you already know it’s good! I got a bottle of Bullet for Christmas, it’s good too.

That is the worst gin I have ever tasted, you can't even mix the shit out of it to make it taste good.
Hmm... I think it tasted a bit like Hendricks. Well, I suppose no one should buy any gin on my recommendation! LOL

I would have to agree. Someone was telling me how great it was, and I was very disappointed.
I wasn't wowed by Jim Beam Black either. Wasn't bad, but it didn't seem any different than the regular Jim Beam.

One cheap bourbon that I think is reasonably good is Rebel Yell.

their Hazy IPA isnt bad either.. better than most beers you can find at the local stores that dont specialize in unique beers.. I like them aswell. it sucks to like good beers.. as most normal beers are disapointing.. lol

Thankfully I have my share of local microbreweries. I'm definitely looking forward to trying Sam Adam's new hazy ipa
