    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.

    I guess one man's value brand is another's mid-shelf. I was thinking more of the under $15 bottles.

    During the holidays I saw Evan W. black on sale for $9.99, now that's value no matter where you are.
