Also tried: Bulleitt (sp?) pretty good. A little harsher than Blanton's
Angels envy: I liked it a lot, but I kinda get why a whiskey purist wouldn't.

I like Angel's Envy. I like Woodford Double Oaked, too. I just don't want to spend that much on routine basis.
Got a bottle of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof today for sub-$60. The clerk gave us a little shit about it, as if he wanted to save some for friends or regulars or something. If you want it to sit on the shelf, mark it up. Otherwise, be ready for people to network to figure out where stuff is available.
The thing about ECBP is, because it's $60+, it sometimes doesn't sell in some places. Stagg Jr also tends to sit on the shelf due to being $50+.

I am very happy to see these developments. The bubble pops as soon as mid-tier bourbon starts getting as expensive as good scotch.

Pappy 12 year lot b (mentioned earlier in this thread)
incredible. lived up to the hype. Smoothest Bourbon I have ever tasted. Once the ice cubes melted just slightly, it was like drinking a cocktail. No burn, incredible flavour.
Jack Daniel's Sinatra Select
It tastes like a very smooth Jack Daniels, but it still tastes like Jack Daniels. It was good, but too expensive to mix, and not as good on the rocks as much cheaper bourbons.
Johnny Walker Blue Label
Not really a scotch guy but this was very smooth. Most of the more expensive scotches I have tried have an overpowering smoke/peat flavour. Here it was much more subtle. I enjoyed it and would drink again, though I wouldn't pay for it.
Blanton's Straight from the barrel
Just tried a small sip of this with no ice. It's a bit much, and undrinkable (to me) neat. The 56.5% ABV hits you right in the face. I'm sure it's good watered down a bit.
Blanton's Single Barrel
A much more user-friendly experience. I know this is kind of the "Entry level" Blanton's, but it is delicious and very smooth. Not as complex as Blanton's gold, but I'd recommend this to anyone getting into Bourbon. the 40% ABV is a little more palatable neat or with ice.
Elmer T. Lee
Enjoyed this one too. Fairly sweet and very smooth.
Another good one. It's pretty expensive in Canada, seems like it's much cheaper in the USA. Haven't tried a bad one from Buffalo Trace yet.

Midwinter night's dram (rye)
regrettably (or not), I was pretty drunk when I tasted this one so my memory is a bit fuzzy. I remember finding it a bit harsh with ice after tasting some of the bourbons mentioned above. Admittedly, my drink of choice when I'm on my own coin is normally Canadian Rye Whisky and Coke, and this Rye tasted nothing like the cheap (but delicious) ryes that I am accustomed to. I'd try it again in a different mindset.

What is the proof? He actually had an unopened bottle of pappy 15 there but we didn't open it. I really enjoy Blanton's gold with a few ice cubes in it and that is 52% I think.
