    Recommendatons

    I have a friend that I am help building a scotch collection. I'm currently looking to recommend a Highland and slay in the $40.00 range. My personal favorites would be a Glenmorangie 10 year and a Lagavulin 10 year. What are your thoughts?

    He can have just about 2 bottles of the Tomatin 12 with that budget.

    One of my favorite Scotches in the $40 range is Ardmore Traditional Cask. It is a real gem at that price.

    Pretty good recommendation with the Ardmore and actually I find it under $30 all the time,tough to beat at those prices.

    I'd buy multiple bottles at those prices. I've never seen it for under $40 in my area.

    Man, you're gonna want to cry when I tell you that there's one place around here that has been selling ATC for $20!! I bought so much of the stuff that I'm burning out on it just from consuming a case or more in the last six months. But it really is a fine whiskey.

    Start him with the McClelland line, where he can get both a Highland and a Speyside for about that price.

    I don't know if that's a good suggestion. I feel like it's telling someone new to bourbon to try Ancient Age and Old Crow to see if they like high or low rye bourbon.

    Glen Garioch is definitely a different product than the McClelland line you pointed out, which I take to mean these: https://www.google.com/search?q=McCl...w=1680&bih=885
