I am interested in buying my first bottle of Scotch, while I'm on a budget, I would like this to be a memorable bottle. I have tried Glenlivet 12 and 18; I really liked the 18 but I'm hoping to get something a little bit cheaper and something I haven't had before. I live in central Indiana, near Terre Haute, searched for scotch tastings and didn't find any. There is a liquor store nearby that stocks about 15-20 types of single malt from $45-$250.
So... all that being said, I'm am looking for a recommendation on a common whisky that is less than $60. I would also like to know what kind of flavors/smells to look for if you know of any. We have a sort of nosing glass from a winery and I am really excited to decipher all the flavors and smells. I've looked through the single malt stickies on recommendations and how to taste/drink it, all very cool. Thanks for any help.
