A great bourbon doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, some of our favorite bottlings are super affordable. But, from time to time, we all like to splurge on a pricier bottle that is downright phenomenal. If you’re looking to spend a little extra cash on a really nice bourbon, these four bottles are totally worthy of the price tag (and worth your hard-earned cash).
This bottling just took home the title of Best Whiskey at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, so you know it’s good. Master blender Nancy Fraley crafts Murray Hill Club using the same techniques that Magnus himself used more than 100 years ago to create the original pre-Prohibition spirit. The blend of 18-year-old bourbon, 11-year-old bourbon and nine-year-old light whiskey is rich on the nose and palate with notes of honey, toffee, baking spices and vanilla. A hint of black pepper lingers on the finish and gives this bourbon an extra warm feel.
