I am a value/budget whiskey drinker. Today, I purchased a bottle of Old Pulteney, Glenfiddich 12, Old Weller Antique 107, & Evan Williams No.10. I have just sampled them all!

Well, the truth is that I am searching for a daily pour and haven't quite settled on an affordable drink that I enjoy. I love Laphroaig 10, but I can't afford it too often. Old Pulteney is nice, though at 30-35US it is also a bit steep for me. The Weller is fantastic, but not widely available. And so...the search continues. :?

If you don't mind a blend for a daily pour, get a 1.75L bottle of Teacher's Highland Cream. It's $31 in my area.

I don't mind a blend at all. But, you are in Chicago while I am in the sticks. I have never even seen a bottle of Teachers!

Ask around, it is well worth it! Maybe a store will order it for you. They do around here.

I currently have whiskies from 11 different countries but of the collection it's about:

SMSW 45%
Other Scotch (Vatted malts, Grain, Blends) 5%
Irish 35%
US (Bourbon, Rye, etc.) 10%
Other (Canada, India, Spain, Aus, NZ, Wales , Japan, Sweden) 5%

That said I'd say what I buy probably breaks down more like this:

Irish 55%
SMSW 40%
Other 5%

The difference is a result of the fact I drink more Irish than anything else, followed by SMSW, and only occasionally delve into the others.
