If you can find a Benrinnes sherried botle I would recommend that. They have been the best sherry bombs I have ever had. The 14 is very good and should be in your price range. This if you want to stretch your budget a bit.  https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/benrinnes-23-year-old-whisky/

^ Tried some last night. It's good. Enjoy and not to rain on your parade but for less than 1/2 the price I think the Platinum is the best value for quality. Haven't tried green yet though.

I think the old gold was the best value.

although when costco sold blue label for around $120 that was a pretty good deal

I also liked the gold label, but I think its nothing to compare to the blue label.

Catching up in here a little bit. I had several fingers of Nectar D'Or which were just the perfect scotch on a warm and summery wedding day.

My brother got a bottle of Lagavulin 16 which is just as smokey/peaty as I remember when I first had it a number of years ago. Not quite my preference, but enjoyable all the same with a tiny bit of quality chocolate.

Some very inexpensive Monkey Shoulder which was inoffensive but didn't really do much other than provide adequate tasting sipping alcohol.

Not a scotch, but my girlfriend's father is a big Armenian brandy fan (apparently so was Winston Churchill) so I gifted him a 20 year bottle which has a lot of depth and smoothness to it. While it's obviously not worth the value over the 10 year stuff, but I found it at an unbeatable price and had to jump on it.

There is one brandy i really like…Germain Robin. Really nice stuff and not as expensive as comparable cognacs, nice if you like sweet cognac. I like the older Tesseron lots as well, so likely if you are into any of those Germain Robin should work out for you and vice versa. Nothing quite beats cognac if you like a cigar.

I love Lagavulin….i used to be much more into the heavily sherried or otherwise sweetened whiskies (IIRC Nectar D'or is a sauternes finish?), now my favorite stuff is all sherried Islay's.
