Best bourbon?


I noticed there are threads for scotch and vodka so we need one for bourbon too.
What do you think is the best bourbon? I can't pick just one but I think that buffalo trace and Elijah Craig are both very good, especially at ~$30 for a fifth.

Blanton’s if you can find it!
Blanton’s Gold if you can find it
Michter’s Small Barrel bourbon. A step (or two) above Maker’s, Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek, Woodford, Russell’s, Basil Hayden’s, even Blanton’s (my former favorite). Terrific for sipping straight, with a splash or a rock, and great for mixed drinks (makes a delicious Old-Fashioned).
I was living in Lexington in the late 1980's. That was the first I drank bourbon and still do to this day. Bourbons came alive back then with great marketing and some excellent distillers. There are now a few NY bourbon makers and it just isn't the same. Kentucky Bourbon is from the air, water and oak of the place....same as French or Italian wine.
