We've picked 12 quality bourbons (1 rye and 11 bourbons actually) that come in at a low to mid price point that we feel don't get as much love as they likely deserve. If you haven't tried these products then it's time to expand your horizons a little, if you have and enjoyed them then come on out and enjoy some more at a discount.

Colonel E.H.Taylor, Jr. Small Batch - The entry-level bourbon in the EH Taylor family comes in a Bottle in Bond release. What you get here is a tasty and very balanced Bourbon that finishes nicely. Nothing overly complex with this bourbon but what you get is a very enjoyable bourbon at an excellent price. We are knocking a full $3 off this bourbon tonight some come try it out at only $7.

Buffalo Trace - For a low-end bourbon Buffalo Trace is one of the easier drinkers. An excellent introductory bourbon to those looking to get into the bourbon craze. It has a sweet nose and front end with a long smoother finish and little bite. It's a great bourbon neat or on the rocks and an excellent mixer as well. Rock solid and only $5 a shot all night long, an excellent entry level bourbon that's gaining popularity here in the heartland.

Eagle Rare 10 yr - This may be one of the best "bang for your buck" bourbons on the shelf. It's surprising how few people know how good Eagle Rare really is especially given the excellent price. In an age of disappearing age statements Eagle Rare has kept it's 10 yr age statement. What you find here is a slightly sweet and more complex tasting bourbon that finishes smooth and oaky. Really this is an awesome bourbon that tastes like a much higher priced offering. We are going to discount it down to $7 tonight to entice you to give it a try.

Jim Beam Signature Craft 12 yr - If you are a fan of Jim Beam Bourbon then you are going to love this 12yr more matured version of the regular Jim Beam white label. With maturity you find an oakier version of the original that finishes a little hotter on the end. A tastier, more bold Jim Beam that you are going to enjoy. Only $8 a shot tonight to be sure to give it a try.

Jim Beam Distiller's Cut - A limited release from Jim Beam that we enjoyed so much we decided we better get extra supply before it disappeared. Holy cow this is a very flavorful Jim Beam bourbon with a long finish with a little spicy notes on the back end. We were surprised by this very cost friendly non-filtered bourbon and we think you will be too. Try it out for only $5 a shot tonight, if you are a Jim Beam fan you may have a new go-to favorite waiting to be discovered.

Russell's Reserve 10 yr - What many claim to be Jimmy Russell's "go-to" bourbon, it's a complex bourbon with lot's of nutty sweetness on the front-end with a long spicy finish. It's another solid bourbon at an excellent price and for only $6 a shot you can sip on it all night long.

Four Roses Single Barrel - An awesome full-bodied bourbon with lots of oaky flavor and a robust spicy finish. Lots going on with this bourbon and has quite a following here at BBT. Come give it a try tonight at a sweet and spicy price of only $7.

1792 Small Batch - The flag-ship bourbon of Barton Distillery is getting a rather large following here at BBT. This bourbon is an easy one for us to recommend because it's just so darn tasty, has an excellent mouthy feel and taste, it's obviously a little higher proof than most entry-level bourbons but not overly harsh. It's $6 tonight so if you are a fan of the 1792 product line come enjoy some with us, if you haven't tried it yet then do yourself a favor and try some tonight!

Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit - 101 proof single barrel offering from Wild Turkey. It's a sweet tasting bourbon that's easy to sip. Vanilla and Oak dominate the front end and it rounds out nicely with a smokey dry finish. Normally $12 we will discount to only $8 tonight.

James E Pepper 1776 Rye - A high-end Rye for a low-end price. We are often surprised by how few people are familiar with the James E Pepper Rye product, especially at it's low price point. It's an awesome tasting Rye with lots of flavor that's going to knock your socks off for only $5 a shot tonight.

George Remus Repel Reserve - A super great bourbon out of MGP that is bold, spicy and balanced with a robust finish. This is a slightly higher priced offering and you can certainly taste it. Normally $16 a shot we are discounting a full $5 down to only $11 tonight. It's an excellent bourbon and even the most picky bourbon drinkers are going to enjoy this one.

OKI 12 yr - The latest entry from New Riff Distillery, it's a blended whiskey using sourced bourbon but it's a very smooth and very tasty bourbon whiskey that we feel most bourbon drinkers are going to want to try before it's gone. New Riff will be dropping the OKI brand soon as they start releasing their own self distilled New Riff bourbon. If this is the last of the OKI brand then it's a heck of a finish. Normally $15 a shot we will discount to $11 tonight so give it a try.

We will also have two specialy flights tonight:

The first consisting of Eagle Rare 10yr, EH Taylor Small Batch and Buffalo Trace for a low cost of only $15

The second flight will feature Jim Beam Distiller's Cut, Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit and Four Roses Single Barrel for the low price of only $15 tonight.
