    Best Whiskey, Scotch, and Bourbon Under $30

    Hey everyone. I was out doing some Christmas shopping at the mall and felt that after dealing with that chaos I owed myself an early gift, knowing the liquor store was within walking distance. I was running low and/or out of a couple staples, so I picked up a fifth of Crown, Gentleman Jack, and Evan Williams. While in the store I noticed quite a few bottles under $30 that I'd like to try, but I really don't want to waste my money on crap. I figured I'd ask my brothers what they enjoy at under $30 per bottle. Maybe you have a staple that you always keep on hand that you'd like to share? I prefer to drink neat, but cheap quality mixers are always good to have around as well.

    Cheers

    around $50 on Bourbon, I can help (750 ml sizes). Most of the ones that I like neat are single barrel, and these mostly run $40 -$50. Includes Blanton, Birthday Bourbon, Bookers, Coneche Ridge, Basil Hayden. Some slightly under this budget would include Knob Creek, Woodford Ridge, Maker's Mark.

    I see Knob Creek and Makers Mark in 750 for under $30 often. Those are good, from what I hear.

    Makers Mark is a good go-to. I like Gentleman Jack, but more in the warmer months. Knob Creek is also good. If I was to make a recommendation, I'd say to get a bottle each of Makers and Knob. The flavors are different enough to make it worth having both around.

    Thanks for the advice Mark

    I have a little over half of a half gallon of Knob Creek, and unfortunately I wore myself out on Makers Mark taking shots of it in the bar + drinking the 5 (yes FIVE) fifths of it I received for my birthday within a week

    Before that MM was my go-to as well

    Here is a good post to read through.

    Just got a steal on a case of Knob Creek for $21 a bottle. Had to buy the case, but it was worth it. It is becoming one of my favorites.

    A fine Tennessee whiskey is: George Dickel No.12.
    Excellent deep smoky flavor with a little bite. Still very nice for the money (under $20)

    A fine Scotch is John Barr Black. Smooth, flavorful, and inexpensive; John Barr is fantastic.

    I was actually thinking about it, especially due to some other recent purchases

    But shipping would add probably $10 to the cost and by than you can pick it up locally I would think.

    Cheers and happy hunting,

    Spend around $6 or $7 more on your scotch and get a bottle of Highland Park 12

    Really good bourbons for less than 25$

    Evan Williams single barrel
    Eagle Rare
    Buffalo Trace

    Single Malt Scotch around 30$
    The Dalmore Cigar Malt
    The Dalmore
    Isle of Jura
    Glenfiddich is mid 30$ range

    In my opinion and extra 10-20$ in Single malts is going to put you in much better standing.

    Blended Scotch, Canadian Whiskey, Rye Other I can't help you with much. Best of luck.

    I just had my college days flash before my very eyes, I remember the "fifth" a day diet. And the green stoges we'd smoke as soon as they would rool them in the "hand rolled" old shops in L.A. And like my pops used to say, "If If's was fifth's, we'd all be drunk".

    Then I suggest something completely different. A rye whiskey.

    I love Old Protrero and was fortunate enough to get one of the first 100 bottles offered to the public.
