Suppose you were celebrating a once in a lifetime event and had up to $200 to spend on a bottle of Scotch... What would you buy?

I like a real "smokey" scotch... the best scotch for the price ($200) really depends on your tastes....different regions...different flavours...

This will get close to the $200 mark, but would not be considered a smoky scotch.

Laphroiag Cardeas 30 year old. Tastes like it was aged in the Creator's own inner tube. Smokiest Scotch you'll have ever tasted. About 500 pounds sterling. A nice Laphroiag 18 year old will do and you'll get change from you $200.

Laphroaig is a good call. One of the peatiest out there.

Mmmmm. Gotta love something that tastes like you fell face first into a peat bog.

Is that better than 'like gnawing on an oak barrel'?

As you may have gathered, I'm not a big fan of scotch.

Lagavulin for me. From the same isle as Laphroaig, but not quite as "medicinal". Peaty, though, but smoother. Smoky and strong. For $200, you could get at least a couple of bottles, I suppose. (They go for 40-60 euros here in the Netherlands.) Or try and find a special edition.

I'm a fan of Lagavulin, but I've never had truly expensive scotch.
