I like Elmer T. Lee - the whiskey and the man. He's a pretty nice guy, from all accounts - still kicking - and responsible for some good whiskey being released as 'special' bottles. We have him to thank for the 'limited release' or 'single barrel' whusk, instead of just dumping it all and taking your chances on a good, cheap bottle. I still have half an old bottle of Elmer T. Lee, made before they started selling it in the current 'nice' bottle.
If you're looking for a pretty good buy, I'd recommend Old Ezra 101 - it was originally marketed to match the proof of Wild Turkey, it's 7 year old 101 bourbon - note that they no longer sell Wild Turkey @ 7 years old/101 here in the US (they may in other markets). I like it a lot, at it's price point. You can spend a lot of money on good bourbon these days. But you don't have to.
