For me the Aberlour 10 is 46$, aberlour 12 is 65$ and balvenie DW 66$.
My price range would be around those.
There is many choices as:
- Bushmills 10
- Aberlour 10/12
- speyburn 10
- bowmore 12
- Auchentoshan 12
- Glendronach 12
- AnCnoc 12
- Macallan 10 fine oak
- Laphroaig Quarter cask
- Glenffidich 15 solera
- Old pulteney 12
Cheaper: Bushmills 10/aberlour 10
What im thinking of buying: Aberlour (10/12), Auchentoshan 12, Bowmore 12
In fact as long as i havent finished my studies ( 3 years...!), im looking for the best dram for my bucks.
The most recommended here seems to be Laphroaig QC, but i don't want to go peat monster yet, thats why i put the bowmore 12 in the list, as i can read its a quality introduction to peat, without being rude.
I would pass on the Auchentonshan 12. I found it just ok. The Auchentoshan Vallinch is 10x better. Its the Cask strength version of the 12 and really out shine the Reg 12.
Glenffidich 15 is a Great whisky for the money. one of the Best bang for your buck out there, IMO.
Now I love the Balvenie Carberain Cask. Bought a bottle today but its simpler whiskey for sure and SO easy to drink. Just a around good time whisky.
