I've only dabbled in the bourbons, but the basic Maker's is a bottle that I keep around for when I'm in the mood.  I'm also on the lookout for a bottle of the Maker's 46, which is the same only more aging, mellower.

A friend who is into bourbons has recommended that I look out for a bottle of the Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select.  Haven't tried it, but def on my radar.

+ 1 on the Woodford, it’s become my bourbon of choice. Not too sweet (Makers) or too “scotchy” (Buffalo Trace). Not expensive for a sipper. I have a bottle of Elija Craig that seems nice so far too. 

I like Makers for Kentucky Mules, in coffee and as something drinkable that any bar or restaurant has on hand  

The $100+/ bottle world is pretty fantastic but I’m making a point of not getting into that realm. I’ll just drink my friends fancy stuff thanks.
