Auchentoshan is the only remaining example of the traditional, triple-distilled lowland style, a style that is similar to triple-distilled Irish single malt (Bushmills or Cooley). A good introduction to Auchentoshan would be the 12 year old, but, if you don't like the triple-distilled style, you could go for a Glenkinchie 12 year old (although it is double-distilled). Both of these should be in your 30-40 Euro target price.
Other than those two distilleries, your options are limited. You might be able to find an old Bladnoch bottling hiding on the shelf somewhere. Ailsa Bay released an interesting, heavily peated malt last year, but it is not a typical Lowland malt.
@DaFinive had the Auchentashen American oak, 12 yr, and three wood... American oak is just ok, a bit generic. The 12 yr and three wood, however, are amazing! I got the 12 yr for $42 and the Three wood for $57... both will always be in my bar!
@DaFin I would reckon the reason for the price difference is simply a matter of demand. The lowland distilleries have a tendency to produce lesser quantities. When you produce less, cost pr "liter" so to say, would typically increase.
