Sadly, good whisky for cheap is a thing of the past.  Gotta pay to play these days.

What do you consider to be the bottom end of the good U.S. bourbon/whiskey?

There is a lot of great bourbon out there in the $30-$60 range. There is a lot of good bourbon under $20.

Can you share a few brands?  Just getting into the hobby. Thanks.

These should all be relativly easy to find:
Blanton's is my #1 reasonably priced bourbon. I drink it (and most others) neat.
Bulleit or Bulleit 10 - the 10 is one of my favorites too.
On the slightly sweeter side, Four Roses Single Barrel is very good.
Jefferson's Reserve
Noah's Mill
Knob Creek
1792
If you want to try a really hot bourbon (as in high alcohol) Stagg Jr. is great. Try it with an ice cube.

Less expensive:
Elijah Craig 12
Johnny Drum Private Stock
Weller Antique or Weller 12
Four Roses Yellow
Fighting Cock
Evan Williams 1783
Old Grand Dad 114

A small sip of Ron Botucal. One of the finest of its kind. But after that one it'll be water....

Good list.
You can find the Wellers  and Old Grand Dad easy there?

Weller's is typically pretty easy to find. I haven't looked for OGD lately.

I'm not able to find the 12 year Weller very easily.  The special reserve is always on the shelf though.

Personally, I really only collect the wheated bourbons.  If you look at my attachment, thats basically the tree to the far left. 

The bottom end, I personally feel, is maybe around the Weller 12 year for me.  A bit challenging for me to find personally, but can be found often enough at a very fair price.  You might also try Makers 46.  Little better than Makers Mark, IMO.

Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea Bourbon Voyage 3. Not bad, but not worth the money IMO. First time I've ever said that about a Jefferson's bourbon.
