RedBreast is what my husband is a fan of but its an Irish. For bourbon Buffalo Trace E.H. Taylor Four Grain Bottled in Bond is o e we have gifted a few of his friends and they all enjoy it.

I like the double-oaked Woodford Reserve and am also a big fan of High West American Prairie. Trying Eden & Oak because it made some lists, and it is a good option too.

Debating between:
Sales:
- “low producers” make $80K/year and high make a few million
- constant stress
- work 7:30am-6pm
- old boys club - degraded and disrespected
- constantly told no etc (can’t get draining some days)
- tied to market

Tech
- ability to grow income over time or get equity options can pay highly
- more work life balance
