Probably a single malt and something less common. He'll be checking this thread, so be nice [;)]

I didn't know there was such a thing as "good scotch". I've tried it a couple o' times and didn't much like it.

They have 18 year old The Macallan at costco for 60 bucks right now. Its pretty sweet.

Nothing says I love you like the gift of alcohol. [:D]

Never met a scotch I didn't like [:D][:D] Having said that - pretty much any single malt is better. The longer aged the better. Anything with Glen in the name helps.

Glenfidditch Believe it or not...Famous Grouse is pretty darn good, and quite cheap for the taste (about $30). For REALLY CHEAP scotch for the taste, William Grants is great. I'll take it over most scotches up to $30, yet it only costs about $15.

[^] If "pops" has any taste in single malt scotch, [b]The Macallan[/b] is ALWAYS an excellent choice! You can NEVER go wrong with it - it's universally known as the premier single malt scotch - in fact it's widely regarded as the "Rolls Royce of Single Malt Scotches".

What's widely sold as "The Glenlivet" is not a blend, it's a single malt scotch. BTW, There are many "Glen" scotches, not all are good, some are rather mediocre (e.g. Glen Mhor, Glenesk, Glen Keith). A few other names if you don't choose The Macallan - Auchentoshan, Laphroig, Balvenie, Lagavulin, Dalmore, Cragganmore, Talisker, oh just forget it there's too many good ones - buy The Macallan [:D]

I'd rather have a nice bourbon myself, but maybe I am a bit biased, heheheh.. Glenlivet is good though..

How about a nice Cognac. Hennesy is my favorite. The single malts are definetly the better Whisky. Try this out. [url]http://www.scotchwhisky.net[/url]

JW Black is great for under $50.Green's not bad either if you can find it.

Glen Moranje (25 yr old) Glen Fiddich Glen Livet Chivas Regal Royal Salute, but you'll have to do some serious shopping to find it under $65.00. Karl.
