My husband says a safe bet for a scotch drinker is a McCallan 18 or 20.

How much would you want to spend roughly per bottle?

When I drink whiskey I jump back and forth between Crown Royal and Wild Turkey with honey. With the crown being my favorite and so far the only whisky I found that I can drink straight up. Although a lot of whiskey drinkers I know love Jack Daniels.

Well, do you want Scotch, Whisky, or Bourbon? They’re all different. I think bourbon is a bit more universal – I love Eagle Rare and Knob Creek (the new smoked maple is awesome!) and Maker’s. Bulleit and Booker’s are good , too.

I also like Jameson’s.

Woodford Reserve is another great and reasonably priced bourbon. In the <$50 category I think you’ll get more bang for your buck with a bourbon, by the way.

@CarolinaCola:  I just got an amazing bottle of Basil Hayden’s for under $50. Its nice and smooth, you can get other brands too but this one was pleasing even the whiskey hating crowd. Also Woodford Reserve is another nice selection.

Glenlivet has a great 12 yr single malt. Or Johnny Walker is good. Don’t go with the red label though.
