I went into a liquor store in Tennessee where the owners were knowledgeable and talkative! I commented that Jack Daniels and Jim Beam were pretty much what we got here and could they recommend some decent US bourbon. They sent me away with Woodford Reseerve and Knob Creek - both decent and I'd highly recommend them!
This is for a gift so while I haven't tasted the products itself, the look of it is great and it's at a much better price than I could find anywhere else. It also arrived super fast. Three days before the estimated delivery date. Really pleased.
