I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Blanton....


Over the years there were quite a few different editions of Blanton's available. Some time ago, I bought one in Germany called 'Single Barrel Silver Edition', no age statement, 49 %:

It was worth the 38 bucks, but meanwhile this special Lot is sold out and I don't know if recent bottlings are similar suitable.

From the same distillery I've also drunk the Elmer T. Lee brand in the past - Black Label, 45 %.

This was recommendable too and also available below 40 Euros.
Now the bottle & label has changed (it's still at 45 %), and I haven't tried it since then.


Judging by the quality and the price - Elijah Craig 12 years for 20 Euro is still unbeatable for me....
