What's a good mid-range whiskey or brandy?

Hi

I've started to enjoy drinking whiskey simply on the rocks or with a small bit of water and I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a nice quality whiskey that won't break my budget. I can't really afford to spend a lot on nice scotch, etc., but is there anything that will be a good sipping whiskey in the $20-25-30 range? Likewise, what is a midrange brandy that can be enjoyed straight?

Thanks.

Bulleit Bourbon is a nice one, goes for about $20 for a fifth at my local TJ's. Also, the TJ's brand blended scotch is surprisingly good at about $10/fifth.

I like Crown Royal. It's a Canadian blended whiskey.

Evan Williams (styled to look like Jack Daniels) is pretty good.
