Good to see another Lexingtonian in here.
As others have said, there are a lot of good low/middle shelf pours out there and we are fortunate in that they are almost all available here. I would also add Elmer T Lee, Evan Williams Single Barrel, Elijah Craig 12 yr, and Four Roses Yellow Label to the list of good value pours.
Can't say too much on ryes. I like Rittenhouse, but have found it to be a little variable. Sazerac and Willett are good for the price too.
