10 Year Old Bourbon

I'd like to give a bottle of 10 year old bourbon as a gift. Can you tell me which brand is considered very special or is 10 years not a significant amount for bourbon?

    Why ten years in particular? There actually aren't that many ten year old bourbons (there are older and younger, but for some reason, not that many ten), but there are a few. The last two editions of Parker's Heritage Collection (an annual release that is different every year) are both ten years old (the 2010 is a wheated bourbon and the 2011 is finished in Cognac casks). These would both make excellent gifts and will likely run you $70-$80.

    If you want something cheaper, Eagle Rare Single Barrel is a very good 10 year old that is more in the $25 range and is pretty easy to find.

      It is to celebrate a 10 year anniversary. I appreciate your suggestions and hopefully they will be available at our state store. Thank you!

        SKU, thanks....I got the Eagle Rare Single Barrel. The state store did not have the Parker's in stock or on their inventory list.
