i have finally found a scotch i really like, and it's $100+/bottle. this is just a small obstacle, though. i will have a bottle of glenrothes '85 in my house before the year is out. i will!

Mmm...scotch. sean is a big fan of the stuff and has turned me onto it as well. only the good stuff, which, here in canada is at least twice the price it is in the states. ugh. i got him a gorgeous bottle of straight from the cask Edradour and i can't wait to give it to him. i hope you get that bottle sooner rather than later! enjoy!

oooh what a wonderful gift!

i am only just now getting into scotch. when i was a kid, my mom always had laphroaig in the house, but i learned quickly that it didn't suit my teenage tastebuds. it's taken me a while to come back around.

If Laphroaig were my intro to Scotch I wouldn't have developed a taste for it either. I still find that stuff dreadful (it's one of Sean's favourites). I like my Scotch much less peaty. All that peat reminds me of Chloroseptic! haha

A bottle of good Scotch, enjoyed judiciously, can last a very long time. So, consider it a good long-term investment in pleasure.

Glenrothes are one of my favorite brands. I like every single one of the years I've tried to date, (all but three, I think?), some just more than others. Have you tried their Alba Reserve? It's even smoother than the 85...(maybe too smooth)...but only about half the cost.

the '85 is the first of theirs i've tried - and i'm hooked. i'll look around for the alba reserve, i may have to go to portland to get it, though. this is not a bad thing.

While I like scotches, I'm not overly knowledgeable. I tend to go for value. So, instead of wine, I know beers VERY well --and with beers, some of the best in the world can be had in the under $20 range --often, under $10. Instead of scotches, I tend to stick to bourbons. Not as subtle, but good ones can be appreciated on their own merit --and they're so much more affordable.
