I've been enjoying very much the occasional peated single malts for some years now including a large variety of Laphroaigs, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Caol Ila, GlenDronach peated, Octomore, among various others, and I honestly bet that without tasting anything else... this is my favorite type whisky. It brings nostalgia, memories, and makes me think of a proud fireplace warming a cosy wooden shed by the cliffs of a stormy sea...
Anyway, I would still like to slowly explore other things. I've tried a few occasional whiskeys of other sorts but this was before I knew how to take the time to enjoy exploring it (I didn't do shots... but if I was drinking, then it was more just sipping while busy doing something else like playing cards and not really thinking of what I was tasting).
However... I would like to occasionally dare try and explore something new and/or have something to offer guests who frown to the peated varieties as I give them a cork for them to get an idea
So I know this is highly subjective... but if you would recommend 5 very distinct wallet friendly (under $50) whiskeys from anywhere in the world that would well represent their category and bring something different/distinct (the same way that for example Lagavulin 16 could well represent Islay peats), what would those be (without giving it much thought)?
Great suggestion however, these are way over the budget he stated haha..
$50 is slightly too low in my opinion to represent any distillery or category. Maybe below $100? For a $100 and below just off my head i'll recommend Macallan Double cask 12 year old, The Chita (by Suntory) , Auchentoshan 12 Years Old, Dalmore 12 Years Old and Kavalan Single Malt.
