I'm getting together with a friend tomorrow who I've recently found out likes Scotch, Dewar's basic stuff. He drinks his over ice but I go neat with water on the side. Can anyone recommend a good blend that might satisfy the both of us? I'd like to try something new that ranks alongside JWB and Black Bottle(no age statement). Since he's on the rocks I was thinking sweeter and I've heard that Famous Grouse Gold Reserve(12 year), Teacher's, and Chivas 12 are some good options. I'm trying to keep it around $20 and the above 3 are pretty close on target. Any ideas?
Of the three options you have suggested I would choose Teachers. The Famous Grouse is too sweet and between Chivas 12 and Teachers, I opt for the latter, mainly based on price and the fact that your friend likes the basic stuff. I think he will find the Teacher's intriguing. Works well with ice or neat.
