    I've never paid more than 13 for Mellow Mash. Somehow I don't think that's going to help you............

    Might I suggest looking for a liquor store with good ole' Wild Turkey on sale?
    Should be right at your target price for a 750 ml bottle.

    Re: NEED a cheao daily drink.. What are my choices??

    Might I suggest that you hit an internet liquor store website.....look at the prices.....research what the boys here have to say about them.....and then start purchasing them at your local store!

    I did the first step for you:
    AA Age $14
    Benchmark $12
    Evan Williams 1783 $11
    JB White $15
    Old Charter 10yr $15
    Old Charter 8 yr $13
    Rebel Yell $14
    Old Forester $14
    Old Weller Special Reserve $15

    Info courtesy of binnys.com.

    Personally, I think they're all rot gut.....maybe ok for mixing....but not straight.

    A little bit Jaded is what I'd call that!

    Glad to see someone else doesn't like Old Forester. I have tried both the 86 and 100. Didn't like either.

    Re: NEED a cheao daily drink.. What are my choices??

    OH.....and at sams:

    Early Times $10
    EW $10
    Ezra Brooks $10
    Fighting Cock $15
    JB 5yr $15
    Old Fitz 100p $12
    Old Fitz 8yr $9
    Ten High 8yr $11

    And they're still all rot gut! Jaded? Maybe I am, but I don't find enjoyment in sipping bourbon that has nothing but BURN! I haven't developed the ability to appreciate the source of enjoyment for these that some of you seem to have. (And, I don't plan to!)

    PS....I'm not referring to dusties....

    Re: NEED a cheao daily drink.. What are my choices??

    Fighting Cock, Elijah Craig and Virgin are all Heaven Hill products, all probably pretty similar. Since EC is a dollar over your target, you could try the Fighting Cock or Virgin and maybe one of those will float your boat. Evan Williams black label, also Heaven Hill, should be within your price range. Old Fitzgerald Prime, also made by Heaven Hill, would be a good choice in a wheated bourbon (the others are rye bourbons).

    Rittenhouse, Jim Beam Rye and Old Overholt (which is made by Jim Beam) are straight ryes that should be in your range.

    Other good choices would be Old Grand-Dad, Old Forester and Old Charter.

    In Georgia, you should be able to find some of the above, and others, "bottled in bond," which means they are 100 proof, which means more bang for your buck.

    Some to avoid: Early Times, Ancient Age, Jim Beam white, Rebel Yell, Old Crow.
