Right, I'm a bourbon drinker. 8 year old Wild Turkey is right where I want to be, although I do stray to Unforgiven, or even rye at times. But there are times when I just want some scotch. And I don't want this to head into the Debate Room on the topic of "scotch vs. everything else", because you aren't going to convince me. But if you like scotch, and have a strong preference for a particular brand or finish, I'm interested in your opinion. Since I drink scotch so rarely, I'm willing to spend a bit of money* on a good bottle, but I'm not going to go nuts. Japan has been in a scotch boom for ages, so there's as much shelf space devoted to scotch as there is to all varieties of liqueurs combined. If you know about it, the odds are decent that I can lay hands on it. Thanks in advance. -Iain *a bottle of basic Glenmorangie costs about (exchange rate adjusted) $40USD/30 pounds/37 euros here. I could go up to +25% ($50USD) and stay within my budget.
