Tossing in my two cents here for what it's worth. I recently conducted an experiment with a friend and two rye whiskies. I know the thread title is "bourbon" but this may be helpful or useful to someone out there.

Bulleit Rye vs Jim Beam Rye in a Sazerac. We love Sazeracs and found that the "cheap" Jim Beam Rye outperformed the Bulleit Rye by a mile. We were quite surprised. He was bummed that he bought the Bulleit - it was that dramatic. Others on the web have also given Jim Beam Rye pretty good marks, something I never expected to see.

High West Rye is also pretty surprising - a darned good whiskey.

For mixing and even straight I like Evan Williams Black. Also 4 roses is great for the $$

I'll second the nomination for Evan Williams Black as a very good budget bourbon, for both mixing and sipping. Been using it for a long time as my regular (non special occasion) bourbon. I recently have tried a number of other bourbons in the same price range, and am only more convinced that EV Black is an exceptional value.

I'd like to reiterate - try the Evan Williams Single Barrel 2014 - It's a fantastic 10 year bourbon for under $25.

I find the Evan Williams Single Barrel to be a step up over the Jim Beam. The aroma and overall flavor seems more refined and enjoyable. Cheaper too!

If you can find "Larceny" it is outstanding at a reasonable price.

Distribution can be a bit spottier but some you might want to consider include the Evan Williams BIB, Old Grandad BIB, Heaven Hill six year BIB, and Ancient Age 10 Star(which is not quite as good as the discontinued ten year, but still good). These are all cheap enough that you could buy the lot to mess around with and not be out more than $70 or so.

actually what does this mean,ive had wild turkey's 101 but ive never drank the 81 proof

"Unlike other whiskies, which lose flavor when mixed with other ingredients, Eddie Russell’s Wild Turkey 81 gives drinkers “an everyday whiskey that can stand up to any mixer or in any cocktail with the bold, in-your-face taste that is distinctively Wild Turkey.”

i always figured when mixing it with stuff like coca cola or other pop's.it all tasted the same,wild turkey's 101 is good though
