    Evan Williams single barrel at $30 a bottle. Any of the Buffalo Trace store picks are usually good. Weller Special Reserve is great when you can find it and cheap. About to finish a bottle of Old Hammer Cask Strength and think it was under 30.

    True Bottom shelf would be Old Crow, I swear I seen some that still had corn cob floating the bottle. My preference is Jim Beam or Jack Daniels, and as far as blended bourbon goes I Like Forty Creek or Crown royal.

    This is exactly what I was thinking! No clue how most of the stuff mentioned is considered "bottom shelf." Not trying to say it's all top shelf, but it sure ain't bottom shelf. Maybe there's a difference between "bottom shelf" and "rail?"

    There should be a category here. Bottom shelf should be a 750 for less than $20.... there’s some fine spirits that slide under this point that I wouldn’t call “bottom” just reasonably priced!! Reading this is making me thirsty Wish it was Dan’s Friday so I knew who was serving....

    Yep, when you mention JD as bottom shelf I am thinking you need to try some Bellow's. That is true bottom shelf. JD at $55.00 for 1.75 bottle is far from bottom shelf.

    Bottom shelf bourbon isn't my deal, since I like it straight

    on the RARE occasion I stray from the brown and beer, I'll knock down some cheap vodka. Can't tell the difference when it's mixed with tomato juice, pickles, olives, a cheeseburger, a philly cheesesteak and 2 lobster claws.

    Get creative. Grab the biggest cheapest vodka you can, run it through a brita or similar filter a few times (ignore you will remove some alcohol content) and then use a high quality mixer... fresh fruits are your friend when using low grade spirits

    For whiskey... bullitt and JW double black.

    My favorite right now is Clontarf 1014, an Irish whiskey.

    When I can get it I like Heaven Hill green label. It is less than $15 a bottle but it appears to only be available in Kentucky.

    I have a bottle of Woodford Reserve that I have been nipping at, but I don't consider a $30+ bottle to be bottom shelf. If I could afford it I would be drinking Jefferson's Reserve all the time.

    Evan Bottled in bond is 13.99 here, and damn good for the money. EW 1783 is worth the coin, too.

    still incredible bourbon for the $$$


    another good inexpensive whisky that compares with another popular Tennessee whiskey that has a no 7. Is Ezra Brooks.
