I'm perfectly ok spending less money, just upper limit is $200. I like trying all type of Scotch.

I'm deciding what to buy for when I get my letter stating I passed my test smile

I've never had much of a taste for Scotch Whiskey. Most of them taste like potting soil and campfire smoke to me, neither of which give me great pleasure. There have been a few that I would drink again though. All about at your price point, maybe a bit more.

Bunnahabhain, 25 year old. Not sure if you can get this outside of the UK, but it is quite good. Damn good actually. I had it when in the UK a few years ago and would most definitely buy it again if I ever see it. I think it was about 120 pounds when I bought it.

Glenlivit 25 year old. Very smooth and I'd buy it again. The 21 year old is also good, but I think the 25 year old is well worth the extra costs. The 25 YO is about $250, the 18 YO is about $180.

A good blend (gasp, not a blend!!!) is Johnnie Walker Blue. It is typically right at, or slightly under $200. I have not tried the King George, but heard it's quite good. The KG is over $300.

On a side note, if I were going to celebrate something, I'd probably get a good Champagne, maybe Cristal, and have it with a couple friends. An expensive Scotch Whiskey isn't really what I would consider a good 'celebration' drink.

Michael, I can't help it, but I gotta point out Scotch Whisky is without the "e".

Augh, I feel like the grammarbot now. frown

Ha ha, sorry Michael! If it's any consolation, I only recently figured out the difference in spelling.

Thought about a nice wine or champaign too... My sister got some Cristal when she got into vet school. My parents said they would give her 5 bottles of Cristal when she finished vet school... She has 1 year left. I know where I'll be when she finishes smile

A bottle of Cab Franc, Vidal or Riesling Ontario Ice Wine. That's always a nice treat.

I guess it depends on your plan and desire. If you where to sit back and toast yourself quietly, reflecting on your hard work and sacrifices, then a fine whisky could be perfect.

When you open it and pour, make sure you enjoy with your eyes first, your nose second before you drink. Don't do it like a shot, let it roll on the tongue, savor it.
