    This is a nice wide selection, get many more open than this and you'll have to start consciously trying to finish things. But you need something from Islay, besides the Legend :-)

    Hmmm, good point. I'm not much for peated whiskies by my wife absolutely loves them. In my rather slim bunker I do have a bottle of Bowmore 15 yr darkest and a Bruichladdich Rocks but otherwise nothing from Islay. I tend to collect the sweeter scotches as those are more to my liking.

    What I really need are some good bourbons in the $20-40 range to sip on. It's still possible to get a good bourbon for cheap (compared to scotch) but I've not done a very good job exploring that range very well. However, I do think I'll be grabbing some Weller 12 year based on what I've been reading here.

    The $20-40 range is the sweet spot for decent bourbon, for sure. Of course, the first thing I'll say you need is $45, but whatever....get that Blanton's Single Barrel, you'll thank me later. If you're trying for that $30 point, definitely go for some Weller Antique for wheaters or Four Roses SmB, you'll be happy. You can also search a thread I did that got a LOT of traction called "What's your favorite pour under X?", you'll find a TON of choices there for sure!

    I've had Blantons and I find it overpriced for the taste. I know, I'm strange. I do need to try Weller Antique and while I've had 4R small batch the only bottle I have is the 2012 edition, I don't have any of their "regular" stuff which would be nicer on the wallet and still tasty.

    I will check out those other threads you recommended. Then I can get a list together for an online order or when I happen to head back down to California. Prices here on anything but the main staples are just too high for me to purchase, especially when I know I can get it cheaper elsewhere.
