I know they have Proper 12 and I was on that kick for a while, so I'm in no hurry to return to that. I'm not stuck on Irish whiskey. A good bourbon would suit me fine as well. I'm just looking for something in the same $30-$50 range.
I recommend grabbing a bottle of Teeling Single Grain and or Redbreast 12. They’re both really good bottles and should be in within your price range.

I have heard good things about the Baby Blue, but I have not had it myself. I have a bottle of their barrel proof whiskeys and I do enjoy it. The Texas whiskey does have a different taste than others, so it is likely going to be a love or hate type thing.

Had a nice glass of this last night. It's become one of my favorite barrel proof bourbons.

Jealous, that bottle is pretty hard to find for MSRP.

Pennsylvania does a first come first served release of some of the rarer whiskeys they receive. I was lucky enough to snag this bottle for $70 when they had it. I wouldn't bat an eye at paying $100 or so but the secondary prices are absurd.

I shop in VT, and with them you can special order things if you are willing to wait; they often have (or can get) rarer things that aren't listed on their page, so you might want to try finding somebody in PA who does their ordering and ask them.

Try Four Roses for a good inexpensive bourbon.

Agreed. Single Barrel is my favorite expression, but you can't go wrong with any of the four.

Thanks for the response. I expected this to taste similar to bourbon but I was so wrong. Just as you suggested Hawkeye, it's....different, and I like it.

During the summer of '96 I did a 10 week internship at Johnson Space Center in Houston. The NASA engineers had a really good band and they'd hold LDEF parties (Let's Do-it Every Friday) every week. I was the official mixologist. Due to my Boston accent, they'd advertise Mahk's Mah-Gah-Ritas in the party flyers. Well here's a Flashback Friday to those days. Enjoying the first Mah-gah-rita of the season.

Clase Azul Repo is one of my absolute faves... it gets a bad wrap amongst tequila snobs for not being pure as many believes that it has a flavor additive of some sort that adds that sweetness. IMHO, it's one of the best...

This and Don J 1942 from the mainstream tequilas for sure.

Don't know. When I tried it a few years back, I proclaimed it the Best Tequila I have EVER tasted. A few bottles later... It still is.

That's a nice collection! Mckenna is one of my favorites.

thought I would try a couple new bottles this time:
