Smooth Scotch - little peat - Under $100
These are all under a $100 (and none are have a strong peaty taste) Highland Park 12 year and Aberfeldy 12 year, Cragganmore 12 year, Glengoyne 10 year and Auchentoshan 10 year. Oh yes, I just had BenRiach 15 years Pedro Ximinez Sherry Finish a few days ago and it was wonderful.
Keep in mind this list in not all inclusive (there are so many great scotches w/ little peat and under a $100) - but hopefully this will give you ideas of where to start -and- they're a few of the ones I have really enjoyed! BTW, yes, I can see how Bulleit Bourbon is a favorite, it's definitely one of mine!
