Macallan 18 is the standard "gift" whisky IMO. A good dram, great brand recognition, more expensive than most people would buy on their own, no flavors too extreme, etc. Personally there are many others I would prefer at that price range but that's the standard gift whisky. No one would be unhappy receiving that.

Well either that or one of cs09's Port Ellens (which probably cost as much as C&J handgrades).

Just Googled that Port Ellen 32. Master of Malt sold it for $1,600 (guess I was low when I compared it to C&J handgrade) and it sold out in 5 minutes. I can't see what you have hiding there cs09, but did you really manage to kop 2 bottles?! Amazing ...

It's the Weymouth, got it at the Barney's sale.

I've been starting a whisky bunker as a hobby and also as an investment. I'm pretty sure master of malt is inflated, but PE does hold its value over time. Got lucky and found a place that gets some of the rarer releases and gives me first dibs, have a 12th release coming in this week, so excited. Yep thats (2) of the 11th release and (3) of the 9th release satisfied.gif

Amazing! That George T Stagg you picked up is one of my faves too. I brought a bottle of it to a poker game a few years ago and shared it with a buddy of mine. About a half hour later he said "what was in that bourbon you gave me? I can't feel my feet!" I guess I should have mentioned it was bottled at 72% (or whatever that batch was).
