I am just saying you are a lot more likely to get a decent response to your question, if you actually look like you put time into writing your question. But what I said still stands, try to come across as someone who is mature enough to actually be drinking.
What John said is important, you first have to decide if you are planning on drinking these bottles or if you are viewing these as an investment. While most of us on the forum buy to drink, rather than buy to invest, the price points you should consider for each are vastly different. I doubt there are many whisky's that are truly "investment quality" under 100 dollars (possibly even under 200). Then when buying investment whisky you should do research on the bottles, and stick to buying what you know.
If you are buying for taste, I highly encourage you to find out what your tastes are first. I personally love a good bit of Sherry influence from aging the whisky in Sherry casks, others are a lot less fond of sherry influence. Do you like the salty influences that can come from a distillery on an island or close to the ocean? How much do you like peat? How much do you like smoke? If you can not answer those questions right away, start by buying some of the younger Original Bottlings from distilleries across Scotland to see what you like. I would also try to put a little bit of effort into trying them from different areas. While the areas do not define the style of the whisky, they tend to offer a decent guideline of what you can expect from the tastes.
