Best Straight Bourbon Whiskey Under $60

Contrary to popular belief bourbon doesn’t need to be made in Bourbon County, Kentucky. In fact, my favorite bourbon of the moment is produced just outside Austin, Texas. Any whiskey can be called a “bourbon” if it meets the following criteria:

  • Produced in the United States
  • Made from a mixture of grains that is at least 51% corn
  • Aged in new production charred oak barrels

For a “straight bourbon” the whiskey must be aged for a minimum of two years in those charred new oak barrels.

This list catalogs all of the straight bourbon whiskey that we have reviewed so far, ordered by rating and price.
