Which 1.75L Bourbon?

I like to keep on hand a bourbon in a 1.75L bottle to use for mixed drinks and cocktails. I used to be able to buy Makers under $30 at Costco. Then my local Costco stopped carrying it and my local package store charges ~$45 so I switched to Beam Black. It crept up from $22 to $30 and now my local package store stopped carrying it because he said it's gotten to expensive for him to carry.

I tried a bottle of Ezra Brooks and enjoyed it. It cost ~$28 so I thought I had found a winner. But now it has disappeared from the shelves. I asked my local package store what happened to it? He said he just can't get any supply from his distributor.

For <$30 I have seen Evan Williams and Wild Turkey 80. Do you guys recommend those or anything else for a pretty good Bourbon for <$30 / 1.75L? I'd rather not go down to Beam white label or anything at that level.
