Substitute for Laird's Straight Apple Brandy (BIB 100 Proof)

rlh | Nov 27, 201312:59 PM     11

I am nearing the end of my last bottle for several favorite cocktails and need to replenish but cannot find this in the Boston area recently.

What would be the next-best substitutes (Applejack is not great in these recipes, and the 7.5 year Lairds Apple Brandy also seems to be in short supply here) - are there any specific brands of Calvados (under $30) for mixing rather than sipping (Morin and Daron come to mind as possibilities, but I haven't tried them yet)?
