Closely related would be "cocktail whiskey," except that for cocktails, the quality/price ratio becomes a very important consideration, as I've always felt that better ingredients make better cocktails, while at the same time I wouldn't use an ultrapremium whiskey for cocktails except for once in a great while. Rittenhouse BIB and OGD BIB are two of my favorites for cocktails - great on their own, great in cocktails, and easy on the wallet.

A Sazerac cocktail made with Saz 18 is sublime, but too expensive to make often; a Manhattan made with Stagg will knock you back after you knock it back (but oh, it's good, and you can still tell it's Stagg after mixing it).
