Evan Williams 1783 Bourbon

Evan Williams 1783 Bourbon

Quite honestly, a product in search of a reason to exist. If there’s a niche it fills, I’m not savvy enough to detect it.
Overall Rating:   

Rebel Yell Bourbon

Rebel Yell Bourbon

We so often ask ourselves whether whiskey is worth the mony mony or whether it’s dead on arrival. Rebel Yell might not leave you dancing with yourself, but the value’s certainly hot in the city.
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Redemption Bourbon

Redemption Bourbon

Redemption is fine. Not fine as in “a fine spirit,” but “fine” in the sense of being perfectly adequate on all levels without ever managing to astound.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Ancient Age Bourbon

Ancient Age Bourbon

There's value here to be sure. But if you're the kind of person who can afford an extra topping on your pizza, Ancient Age is hard to recommend on merit alone.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Evan Williams White Label

Evan Williams White Label

Evan Williams' White Label is most everything good about bourbon. It's buttery, sweet, cheap, and enjoyable enough to have every day. It's one-note, sure, but it's a good note.
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon

Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon

Brash, aggressive, and as subtle as a punch to the mouth. All that said, Wild Turkey 101 is a well-made bourbon and is totally worthy of a purchase even for a sissy boy like myself.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 

Jim Beam Jacob's Ghost

Jim Beam Jacob's Ghost

A perfect case of evaluating a product on its own merits. On paper, this is utterly stupid. However, I'd rather have a glass of this than just about any other flagship Jim Beam offering.  Overall Rating: ★★☆

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey

What if I told you that what people widely promoted as the most manly, ass-kicking kind of spirit was actually formulated to be rather sweet and gentle? You might think you're getting Motorhead, but you're actually getting REO Speedwagon.  Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Old Grand Dad Bonded

Old Grand Dad Bonded

Grand Dad wouldn't steer you wrong. Slap a twenty on the counter and run out of the store giggling when you think of what a gonzo value this is.  
Overall Rating: ★★★

Larceny Bourbon

Larceny Bourbon

If you're looking for a "wheater" bourbon to see what the category is all about, I'd say there are better locks to shove your key into.  Overall Rating: ★☆☆
