Fitzgerald Whiskey

What's the best "cheap" (under $20) American Whiskey?

Some people seem to think Old Fitzgerald 100 proof

By "under $20", what quantity are you referring to? There are very few American whiskies that can't be had for under $20 for a fifth. Evan Williams, which I can say is a good-tasting bourbon, especially for the price, can often be had for under $20 for a half-gallon.

Myself, I drink George Dickel, which most stores near me sell for around $17 a fifth (or $30 for a half-gallon), and it's a very smooth-drinking whisky, intended primarily for sipping, but is very good to drink either way.
