Any One for a Scotch? - Page 170

You should make that trade if he is willing to accept your $250 valuation on the Bowmore. It appears to be replaceable for 50 euro + shipping.

Having a discussion with my buddy. In your opinion, how little in your opinion could you spend and get a better scotch than Johnny Blue?

Really? Curious to know what you think is comparable. I think that Blue Label is overrated and overpriced but I'm not sure I'd associate it with any $30 scotch I can think of.

At $30 Monkey Shoulder is pretty damn good. Is it as good as JWB? Dunno.

Balvine Doublewood and Laphroig 10 are usually available for around $30 here. Both are more interesting than JWB IMO.

I will need to try JWB to have an opinion on the matter. But is it a fair question, considering we are comparing blends to single malts?

Wow, they're both around $50 in Chicago. I can see the argument here with the former choice but Laphroaig is so unique that I'm not sure it's a fair comparison. I think you'd have to pick something with a similar flavor profile. I think a taste test comparison is a good plan.

Yeah it is. I've got the Caribbean 2003, the 1995 Demerara, and the 2001 Fiji.

Thoughts on them? I'm a fan of the Caribbean. Haven't had the Demerara or that particular vintage of Fiji.

I really enjoy the Caribbean and the Demerara, haven't opened the Fiji just yet.

Yeah, outstanding. The cheapest on Wine Searcher shows ~$38 for Laphroiag and $34 for the Doublewood (w/o tax). I get Laphroiag for $40 and thought it was a great price.
