    Ethan, some of my moderately priced favorites are Beefeater and Bombay gins, Mt. Gay and Myers's rums, and Courvossier and Remy-Martin cognacs. I don't like any vodkas except, rarely, the flavored Stolicnaya's.

    I'll throw in Spanish brandy into the suggestion bin.

    I tried heated Spanish brandy once, it was very tasty.

    Another rum just came to mind -- St. James from Martinique. It's a brown rum that was Hemingway's favorite. It's not bad, and it's not very expensive, as I recall. A former girlfriend also invented a tasty cocktail with it -- St. James, pineapple juice, and Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) on ice. I named it the Mary Amberley. Kudos to anyone who gets the reference.

    Re: Expanding my spirits drinking.....

    I FINALLY got my bottle of Laird's Apple Brandy BIB and popped it open and I really enjoyed it. It was like a wheated bourbon with a hint of apple. I think this stuff would be perfect with a splash of Apple juice or really good in warm spiced apple cider. For $20, it's probably going to stay on my shelf. Now that I have an idea of what brandies are like, I may venture out and get some peach or blackberry brandies to see what they're like!
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
