I'm a bourbon guy, and I spent my younger years drinking Pappy Van Winkle's, Buffalo Trace, JD Monogram, etc. But those days of exquisitely priced spirits have come to an end. I'm a 40 year old now with a kid in daycare, a wife, a house, cars, a boat, etc. etc. My days of being able to eat Manwich for every meal and spend the rest of my $$ on bourbon is done. So I'm looking for a good, cheap whiskey. I don't care if it's in a plastic bottle, and I'm okay if it's a straight or a sour mash. Either one works fine for me. It needs to be cheaper than Jim Beam but with decent taste. I've heard that Evan Williams is good. I like Old Crow okay, and I recently purchased a bottle of Ezra Brooks. The Brooks is actually quite good for mixing sours, old fashioneds, etc. but it's kind of gnarly on its own. Can anyone recommend a good American whiskey that works for an aging penny pincher like me? Much appreciated.
