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.

Basil Hayden is my all time favorite. But, hey, Makers Mark, Blanton's, Van Ripple, the single batch Wild Turkey and Jack Daniels are all on my shelf---in fact, I'm having a JD now...Silver Select or something like that or is it Rare Breed????

Never had Eagle Rare. The 17 yr stuff sounds really good. Think that will be a xmas present to myself!! Thanks for the link.

Here's to you.
10 year eagle rare is great stuff too. I also like makers mark, but I think it is a little overpriced and it is a little too refined at times fir my tastes (sometimes I want something with more balls).

Pappy VanWinkle 20 yr. old, if money is no object. Rowen's Creek is good and reasonable at ~$40. I need to try the Eagle rare. Happy Holidays!!
Makers Mark is my favorite. Jack Daniels is not bourbon. It is Tennessee sippin' whiskey. :-)
