20 Of The Most Expensive Bourbons In The Good, Old US of A - The Whiskey Wash

20 Of The Most Expensive Bourbons In The Good, Old US of A

This list is updated as of September 1, 2016.

Alongside our post detailing 50 of the most expensive whiskies in the world, one thing stood out from this list: there were only a few bourbons listed. Regardless of how high a bottle value you think a Pappy Van Winkle might hold, it is but a drop in the bucket compared to most Scotches. This got us wondering though about what some of the most expensive bourbons might be on sale right now, and for this we turned once again to our friends at wine-searcher.com for details.

Below you’ll find from them a list of 20 of the most expensive bourbons currently sitting at retail. This list, it should be noted, is based upon the average price of a standard bottle excluding taxes, with information for it being drawn from a database of prices from tens of thousands of wine and spirits stores all around the world.

Nino Marchetti

As the founder of The Whiskey Wash, I'm crazy about whiskey, I can tell you, and I aim to share this passion with you through this site. As for my professional background, I’m a writer and journalist by trade and an Internet dot-com veteran prior to that. My most recent venture prior to this was as the founder and editor-in-chief of EarthTechling, a leading consumer focused green technology news website. I also have an extensive collection of whiskies from both start up distilleries and centuries old operations in Scotland alike, sprinkled with some other odds and ends from around the world, that have provided me with a unique picture of what’s going on with this wonderful spirit.
