Nothing happening in Scotland will affect the price of Scotch as much as the fucking dirty Chinese getting a taste for the stuff (and catapulting prices).

In theory you'll save a bit as Sterling takes a beating but that won't last long.

Dont sweat it. The Chinese along with the Thais prefer blended whisky. In bars it's common to order it by the bottle with a bucket of ice and a jug of mix.

They are also getting into the good stuff. Even if it's a minority, it's big enough to change the entire market.

They said the same thing about the Japanese. Champagne may be another story.

Thats a nice bottle. Not my palate, but the look in your hand as well as the feel and softness of it in your mouth is pleasant.

Would anyone happen to have a rec for a good scotch that won't cost me 2 million dollars? Not much of a scotch drinker myself but my buddy just got a new home and thought it'd be a nice house warming gift.

Was just gonna go with a standard like Glenlivet 12, but not sure if there's a better one out there around that price point.

Yes. Yes there are. Do you know what "family" of scotches he prefers?

If not, for the price of a Glenlivet 12 (which is a-ok if you don't find anything else).

I'm a fan of Bowmore in that price point. Or Scapa. Or Jura (superstition) at a lower price point.

Also Caol Ila I find really good and cheaper.

Well I know he enjoys Glenlivet, that's about it. Just seems like a good time to get something he wouldn't necessarily get on his own.

Appreciate the input.

I'm looking to pick up a good bottle of scotch for a friend that is available at the LCBO.

Any interesting "non-traditional" quality bottles out there for $80-125?

I'm not too sure about his particular likes.

I'm seeing Talisker in here.

He did buy me a Balvenie DoubleWood 12.

Talisker is pretty traditional. Without knowing his preferences, if you want something a little special you could look at a few things that aren't always available. The LCBO always has several things like that. Here's a couple, which I can't vouch for personally:

http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/caol-ila-distillers-edition/89789
http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/edradour-the-distillery-edition-10-years-old-highland-single-malt/904995

By non traditional, I suppose you mean not Glenlivet, Macallan or other huge distributers like Glenfiddich.

Laphroaig 10 is a chewy smoky ultra peaty harsh bottle (if thats what he likes)
Ardberg 10 is a very potent Islay at that price point
Bowmore (may be to mainstream to be called non traditional) 15 is my go to Islay
Aberlour 16 is a nice sweet well balanced

I hear good things about Glenfarclas but have never tried it.

Anyway, if I had $100 or thereabout and have to choose a bottle, thats what I would do.

Edit: I echo the Talkisker choice. Also great choice. Though pretty widely distributed. Also, I really liked Caol Ila and Jura supersition (slighlty cheaper choices). I dont like Dalwhynnie, it's pretty meh.

I also bought a bottle of Benriach. Good, but I've awoken with headaches the last 3 times I've delved into it. Doesn't usually happen with other bottles. I'm wondering if it's caused by their process.

Go to Islay and visit. Then hop on to Jura then to the Isle of Skye. Buy a bottle of each distillery you go to.

I just figured they would be cheaper there/have more variety, and was wondering what would be an interesting bottle(s) to get. I drink a glass of scotch like once every few weeks or somewhat. Not very knowledgeable, but do enjoy it on occassion.

When I was in Heathrow, they had a few bottles on for like 50-60% off. I got one of those. When you add up the 50% + no tax + savings in UK vs Canada + currency conversion, 50-60 pounds gets you one hell of a price tag in Canada.
