Hello Whiskey Forum,
As you might guess from my name I do not drink alcohol and know very little about the world of Whiskey. I have several friends that drink but non of them favor Scotch but one, and it's because of him that I am here seeking suggestions.
My friend was always just a beer drinker when I met and got to know him. Then about 20yrs ago he moved to N. California and was introduced to Scotch by some of his co-workers, and has been a convert ever since. He has been fighting cancer for the last 18 months and after having good results at first, has been re-diagnosed with it again. I would like to buy him a very good bottle of Scotch to send him to help keep his spirits up and to wish him well, but do not have a clue which one to buy him. I would really appreciate suggestions. I would like something that would really make his eyes open wide and say "holy sh$t" if you know what I mean. I know that there is a huge price range so my upper limit on the bottle I get him would be 150 to 200 dollar range.
Any suggestions would be very welcome,
