    I have reviewed Lagavulin 25yr and Yamazaki 25yr and both are without doubt excellent whiskies - but way beyond $1000/bottle.

    yeah, I saw the Laga 25 and it seems like some special, but WAY outside my price range

    greetings, the big question is what is your budget, then from there, Bourbon or Sherry cask, and there are not a lot of official bottlings at 25 year worth the big bucks, before you drop the coin, you should at least give a consideration to the wonderful independent bottlings from Gordon & Macphail and Signatory and Cadenhead and a few others, the bottles are also usually very nice and you can get some amazing whiskies this way

    I don't want to go over $500 for my bottle

    I've had a couple of Signatory bottlings and you're right; they produce some mighty fine liquid.    
    But like I said earlier, if I'm paying this kind of money, I want the whole experience, to include a
    nice presentation case.  The independent bottlers typically have lackluster presentation cases.

    I've also noticed that the glendronach grandeur seems to be less than $500 at a couple of places, so I'd definitely be interested in that as well.

    Bowmore doesn't sound too bad...

    I guess for me it's down to:  Bunnahabhain 25, Glenmorangie 25 (if I can get it under $500), Glendronach Grandeur and Bowmore 25.

    Thanks all!  It'll be a while before I buy one, but I'll keep you posted.
