Re: Help deciding Scotch to buy.
The older the better, IMO that theory is debateable once you get passed 10 years old. And although it may be an anomaly, I had one 3mth old newmake this year that craped all over a number of aged whisky's I've had.
But I digress, there are so many that are recommendable for that money, so to keep it simple, go with the Glenlivet. Oh and as a gift, an aged statement does seem more special.
