    Hard to beat that.
    not that hard; I'll take the Rittenhouse Rye BIB for $11.99

    It aged another 2 years (4 vs. 6) than the 80 proof version.

    I did see your other post and know they were out of the BIB.

    I recently picked up a bottle of Old Forrester 100 and opened it tonight. I really like it and it's a great pour for under $13. Another choice is Saz, Jr. I got my bottle for under $14.

    ALL HANDS! - Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. I have no idea who makes it, how old it is (I am assuming the four year minimum), or why it is so cheap. I just payed $5.87 for a liter. Oh yeah, you can only get it on base at the Navy Exchange, since it is on base, there is also no sales tax. Tastes pretty good to me. WAY better than, say, JB White. I *think* that it is a HH product from the taste, seems familiar, just can't place it. If anybody is interested in a bottle let me know.

    I guess for me my cheap bottle that I enjoy would be the Rittnehouse Rye 100 Proof. If I had to pick a Bourbon it would be EC 12. Here it is about $18. I find it flavorful enough to enjoy. I have tried AA and found it pretty bland. I guess I would prefer a better beer than a cheap Bourbon, I need flavor.

    1.75 liter?

    Old Fitzgerald Prime (way cheap at only $19.99 for a 1.75 bottle)

    Well you see, that's something you folks out there in true bourbon country have to be truly grateful for! Over here in the Empire State I don't believe I've ever seen a 1.75 lt bottle of bourbon. It's either 750ml or liter, so we don't get those great bargains! Tom V

    I can second that. Most of the bourbons mentioned in this thread are either not available to me, at least not off the shelf, or are priced in the mid to upper twenties. Buffalo Trace, for instance is 2800 to 2900 yen. More expensive than ETL.

    That's just insane. But, you are lucky.

    I know, Tim, I know. It could always be better, but it could be worse, too.

    Some of my favorite blue collars would be, in order of preference with FC 103 being my favorite:

    Henry McKenna 1.75L/$16.99
    Old Forrester 86 1.75L/$21.39
    Elijah Craig 12 y.o. .75L/about $14
    Rebel Yell 1.75L/$20.50
    Fighting Cock 103 1.75L/$26.99

    These may not be "blue collar" enough but they are ones I like. Others I've had (EW1783, AA 10 star, JB White, J.T.S. Brown, and others) though good don't really have enough panache to make me want to buy them again.

    Of course I've never met a bourbon I didn't like.

    I think my favorites in this range are:

    ER SB at $16.99 (I know its more than $15, but just barely)
    WL Weller at $14.99
    EW 1783 at $10.50
    Pikesville Rye at $8.99

    I haven't had the nerve to try some of the others. I'm contemplating HH BIB, AA, and Ten High, but just can't seem to pull the trigger on them yet.
