Talking of budgeting for bottles, what are the surprising, maybe overlooked better value bottles? For me the ones that spring to one are: Dewars Smooth series. Low cost and a great way to try different finishes. Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select. For me it’s a touch low on the proof, but a lovely expression of Jack Daniels character. Great when it’s on offer too, and the barrel strength on offer can be a great buy too. Coachbuilt. A nice, everyday drinker with a little depth and spice. £40 in the U.K., not sure what availability is like elsewhere. What else should be on the budget heroes list?
