Not worth it. I bought this at Christmas for this price, and I also bought the Wild Turkey 101 from Amazon for £6 more.

Its not even a competition, Wild Turkey is just cheap bargain basement whishy. The 101 is in a whole different league and worth the £6 more. The 101 is easily the joint best bourbon I have ever had alongside Four Roses.

Buy this only if you want a cheap Coke Mixer, and even then Jack Daniels or Jim Beam can be had cheaper.

So don't buy this wait until Black Friday when you can get the 101 for £22. Its worrth the £6 more. And this is not worth £16

Noticed this at the London Liverpool Street Metro store today, packaged with a free copper cup - well, I say packaged, they don’t put the bottles on the shelves in there due to thieving, but that’s neither here nor there...
A great deal with the cup

If you like Four Roses, try Buffalo Trace. Cheap and delicious
Wild 101 and smoked turkey cocktails yum

Wait until Black Friday. You do know it is August now and Black Friday is in late November!!
Picked up a bottle 30 mins ago. Yes 101 is better but whisky/bourbon deals are thin on the ground right now and this is perfectly decent bourbon for the price (and i have had far better/ more bourbons than 101 and 4 roses)

Given i am all out of bourbon waiting till black friday isnt really going to cut it.

Right, and if someone was desperate to have it. The 101 was £22 for Amazons Prime day only a week ago. I picked up a spare bottle of it then.

So if you didn't feel the need to buy it then, then Black Friday is 15 weeks away.

You get four chances per year to get these deals on the whisky. Christmas, Black Friday Easter and Amazon day.

You can't have tried many if they're your favourite

Ok deep breath. I have tried Jack Daniels No7 and No14, JD Gentrleman Jack, JD Single Barrell, JD Rye. Jim Beam, JB Devils Cut, JB Double Oak, JB Rye. Woodford Reserve, Rye, Malted and Straight. Bulleit Rye, Evan Williams Black, Evan Williams White, Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, Aldi's Clarkes, Makers Mark, Knobb Creek, Wild Turkey, Wild Turkey 101

And of that list I would say, by a considerably margin Four Roses is my favourite and the best bourbon of them all, Wild Turkey 101 is my second favourite, and Evan Williiams White Label is third.

If there are better than the above ones I have tried that I am missing out on. I am all ears.

Elijah Craig small batch, Elijah Craig 12, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Eagle Rare, Makers Mark 46, Woodford Reserve Double Oak, JD silver select, Four Roses single barrel, Noah's Mill, Blanton's Gold, FEW bourbon - All ones I've tried and I'd say are better than WT101, which certainly isn't bad.

All of these can be purchased for under £50, probably other than Noah's Mill & JD silver select but I always purchase when they're on offer anyway

Eagle Rare usually drops the most on Black Friday, probably the best value at around £28, I always stock up

Eagle Rare was in my list, and to be honest. Its nice, but not in the same league as Four Roses. There is something very unique on Four Roses that makes it taste very different to every bourbon I have had..

I also prefered Wild Turkey 101 to it too.

But thanks for the other suggestions will look them over on Amazons Black Friday deals (I buy all my whisky then and just stock up)

Four Roses single barrel, small batch or the standard one?

I'm with you on the 101 love, it's my favorite non-expensive bourbon, but for £16, this is still a good deal and much preferable to something like Jim Beam. That said, I'd definitely recommend spending a few more quid and getting a bottle of Bulleit for £20 on Amazon. That's basically where 'good bourbon' begins.

I'd really say in general, bourbon is meant to be 43-45%+. I know high proof can scare some people off, but any decent bourbon will be surprisingly drinkable even at something like 50%. It has a sort of inherent accessibility - but that's the problem - take away the higher strength and that 'accessibility' just makes it boring. Needs that extra bite and character to make it interesting and enjoyable.

Mmmm.Blantons Gold ,where can I get that from? Been trying for ages.My favourite bourbons so far are Wild Turkey 101, Knob Creek Single Barrel, Bookers, and as a budget bourbon Buffalo Trace.

Blanton’s Gold for under £50
You will be lucky to get it under £100 at the current exchange rate. You won’t even get the standard single barrel for anywhere near £50.
