    I'm really envious of the wide variety of scotches available in the US, not to mention the prices. I finally pulled the trigger on a bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail after reading so much praise. It's great stuff. The damage? $146 CAD. I'll save it for special occasions.

    Given my situation, got any recommendations for good, more affordable scotches? I always have McClelland's (the Islay - I understand it's distilled at Bowmore) on hand as well as Te Bheag. I think they're fine everyday whiskies. Both are in the $35 range here.

    Not generally a scotch drinker... but Saturday had Talisker 18 paired with five-year aged Gouda.

    Oh yes:

    Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Balvenie, Highland Park, and Dalmore are the faves.

    I picked up a 25 year old Laphroaig at Heathrow the other day. Tried it last night. I have a bit of a cold at the moment so perhaps not ideal, but my initial impression is wow, it's awesome.

    The Cask Strength 25yr or the 40% 25yr? The 25yr CS is perhaps the most amazing Laphroaig I've ever had (far better than the 30yr and several old wonky IB's I've tried).

    It's the Cask Strength one. Wasn't cheap, but so far at least, very much worth it. It's not as peaty as I expected it to be. Very smooth and has an outstanding flavour.

    I agree with this. But, I do love the 30 and especially for the price that I found them at a couple years ago. I've only had the 25 maybe 5 times. A friend has a bottle that he takes out rather infrequently.

    I'll admit, I'm not that generous with my $400 bottles either.
