This article will bring you to the list of the best cheap bourbons under $30. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice. If you want to have a pleasant drink at the end of a tiring and exhausting week, but you are on tight on budget, or just simple don’t want to spend too much money on your bourbon – follow this great compilation now, as we will show you what is worth buying in this case.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of best cheap bourbons under $30 from their list.
The first one is Bulleit Bourbon. Diageo plc (ADR) (NYSE:DEO) owns this brand, the number 10 on our list of best cheap bourbons under $30 that is manufactured at the Kirin Brewing Company’s Four Roses Distillery. Bulleit is characterized by its high content of rye (around 28% of the mash bill) and is aged for at least six years. It is bottled at 90 proof for the U.S. market and at 80 for other regions, like Australia. The second bourbon on our list should be Old Grand Dad 114. Bottled at 114 proof (57% alcohol by volume), Old Grand Dad 114 that ranked 9th on our list of best cheap bourbons under $30 is likely to raise your hair due to the fact that it’s stronger than many other bourbons. The high alcohol content can get in the way of the flavor, but nevertheless, the rye, which represents 26% of the mash bill, is well distinguished alongside hints of cinnamon and a fruity palate. At last, but not least we are mentioning Elijah Craig 12-Year-Old Bourbon. Aged for 12 years, Elijah Craig 12-year-old bourbon is the oldest in this list. It is owned and manufactured by the family-operated Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc., which is one of the largest alcohol suppliers in the U.S. Being bottled at 134 proof also suggests that it’s stronger than its counterparts, but a longer aging period means that the flavor is as good as it can get. However, it should be noted that it is a small-batch bourbon, so it may be pretty rare to find. If you do though, it’ll be a great addition to your bar, or even a decent present for an acquaintance that you don’t like significantly enough to fork out for a more expensive bottle of booze.
