    Favorite value/mixer bourbon?

    If I need to pick up something cheap for mixers, or just want a good, don't have to think about it bourbon, what to do usually buy?

    For me, my go to budget bourbon is Ancient Age. It's cheap enough that I don't mind using it in mixers, or letting friends use it in mixers, but i think it is also good enough to drink neat. Sometimes I think to just sit back and have a drink without having to give it any thought.

    Another would be the Ancient Age 10 Star, or, my choice, Evan Williams Black Label.

    I would love to try that, but haven't been able to find it in Texas. I'll try to look for it when I go to Kentucky in May.

    Heaven Hill 8 year. $10 for a liter and pretty darn good.

    $10 a liter?? Man, you are killing me. Although I have not seen it at any price, being on the wrong side of the river, I am sure it's good stuff and I'd buy it by the case. Maybe when I come back to mpls someday to reminisce, you can point me to right place (after we sample a little tequila).

    Evan Williams Black for me. Cheap enough when someone makes themselves a double or triple bourbon/coke that I don't cringe, decent enough to drink on its own.

    I have to agree with this. HH 8/86 for $17 for a 1.75 is a great mixer/rocks sipper to have around. I have heard rumors it is being discontinued but I don't plan to do any hoarding until those rumors are confirmed.

    VOB BIB quite easily. We served VOB BIB and AAA 10 year at our wedding last May. Everyone, from the bourbon and coke folks to the neat folks, raved about each of them. By the time BT dropped AAA 10 year I no longer considered it a true "value" pour, but the VOB is.
