    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!
