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.

Knob Creek - Great with smoky tones
Buffalo Trace - Very clean and crisp
Baker's - Wow, don't partake close to an open flame

Bourbon is a real bargain. You get a lot of quality and great flavor for your money. I also like scotch, but some of the pricing is a bit too high IMO.
i read with some interest about the furor that erupted after makers mark announced they were planning to dilute their bourbon in order to meet demand. brilliant strategy which suggests their management has been oversampling their product. i now notice a flurry of prime-time maker's mark ads--undoubtedly an effort to repair their image--which has to be costing 'em millions. usually, it's best to leave a good thing alone--remember new coke?
Just found this thread. After years of being a canadian drinker (CC, VO and CR), my oldest son (29) has finally turned me into a bourbon drinker. His standby is Knob Creek. He also has enjoyed with great admiration Booker's on the higher end and Eagle Rare on the less expensive end. Last Sept we spent two days doing the Bourbon Trail and spent a night in Bardstown KY. Highly recommended. I came away with a very strong appreciation for Very Old Barton. VOB is 6 year old bourbon from Barton's distillery in Bardstown and is bottled in 80,86,90 and 100 proof. Oddly, the 90 proof seems to be my favorite. The best thing is it is very reasonable, $22 for 1.75l, around $16 per liter. The bad news is, it is only available in about half a dozen states or so. I just found it in WI and I am thrilled. You can order it shipped to you from Binney's Beverage Depot in the Chicago area.

Finally, basic Jim Beam get's no respect. As a friend said, it is the anti cable of bourbon. Their JB Black (aged 8 years rather than 4) is a good value IMHO.

My son and I agree, Jack Daniels is nothing special and way over priced.

Tried some Knob Creek last month and that was the best bourbon I tasted until tonight.
My choice now is Blanton's.Goes great with a Porterhouse steak and/or with Miles Davis.
