    Black Bottle, available in Florida, is a blend containing whisky from all of the Islay distilleries and is a highly regarded brand. With your stated price range you can afford two bottles.

    I've never seen that, but I think I know where I might find it. Sounds interesting.

    ABC stores carry Black Bottle but I don't know if all the stores stock the brand.

    I keep wanting to go back to Balvenie 15 SB. Also, the new release of Costco's Kirkland 18 year is a really nice price for a slightly watered down Macallan (80 proof instead of 86) 18 year. It's $33 for 750ML. Darn tasty as well.

    I've heard rumor of such a beast but never seen it. I go into Costco about twice a month and every time I ask I hear "it came in last Tuesday and was gone by Saturday." Apparently, the guys in Atlanta horde Costco Macallan worse than the SB.com guys hoard discontinued bourbons.

    It lasts up here for maybe 7-10 days in general. But heck, it's an 18 year old single malt from a good distillery for $33. It's worth a chance for even people who don't love whisky. The first time I bought it, the cashier asked me how it mixed with Coke and I said that I drink it neat. She looked at me like I was crazy. I guess that I'm "baller" enough to mix with my 18 year single malts.

    If you want an intro to Islay at its best go for Lagavulin 16. If you have a Costco near you they usually have it for $55-$65, but it can get expensive at other places. I would stretch the budget to get it, it's probably my fav regular bottling. I also second the Bruichladdich Laddie Ten, which is fantastic.

    Do not avoid Laphroaig! That's great whiskey too.

    I agree with this assessment. The Lagavulin 16 iodine was what made me really fall in love with good single malts. After all the normal releases, special releases, and limited releases from other distilleries, Lagavulin 16 still stands as one of my favorite drams. The only downside is that my money goes to Diageo.
