Have you been following along with the Bourbon Brain Trusts “If I had a Benjamin” Series?

It’s really the age old question for bourbon-lovers isn’t it?  On what particular whiskey should a whiskey lover spend their hard-earned dollars?  To best answer it, I decided to call in the cavalry.  I contacted a number of bourbon and whiskey bloggers, podcasters, writers, and retailers and asked them to submit their own strategic allocations of a hundred bucks.  Now it’s your turn.

Have any ideas for how YOU’D spend your Benjamin on bourbon and whiskey?  Share it with us!

Here’s what YOU had to say:

Can’t complain about Jeffrey David’s choices at all:

If I Had a Benjamin - Jeffrey David

I may need to plan a trip to Massachusetts soon… 
If I had a Benjamin - Rick Dubay

Quality over Quantity:

If YOU had a Benjamin - Kevin Glowacki


Unfortunately these days, you’re right!  But we couldn’t make it easy on everyone, could we?
