Obviously not our premium member, who everyone will naturally be a fan of :D

I am planning on buying a friend a gift for doing me quite a few solids of late and I'm after some advice/recommendations. I was looking at an 18 year old Macallan (about £250 to clarify budget). Does anyone have any strong recommendations of what would be comparable to this: https://www.whiskyshop.com/macallan-18- ... riple-cask

Cheers :)

Not a scotch but try some Eagle Rare bourbon if you can find it.

Cock jokes aside, it’s no surprise Gramps choice in Whiskey is as classless as they come...

I don't mind this personally, but I wouldn't call it a gifting bottle. You can pick up a bottle of that for £25 around these parts

I live in the US and use this website, which is simple but finds some great prices. The only downside in your case is that you have to know what you're looking for already.
http://www.wine-searcher.com/find/twent ... y/1/usa-ca


If you have 5 different things that might be up your alley, that site will help narrow down which is the best deal.

However if you have no clue what you're even potentially looking for, it might be like finding a needle in a haystack,


You can't go wrong with any Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, whatever 15,18,21 year whiskeys. I have bough a few of those bottles as gifts(I do not drink, ironically) and every time the person was like "wow" as far as the taste and uniqueness of the gift.

Good luck man, the drinking world is a giant rabbit hole of potential buys...

https://remedyliquor.com/spirits/glenfi ... h-750.html

I don't even know if this site works internationally, IIRC you are in Britain?

Probably a solid choice. I drink the 12 regularly. I’ve never had the 18 though. I’d rather have 3 bottles of 12 :) Love sherry cask.

Aberlour is another speyside that you might like.

So what was the outcome Don Carlos?

I like a drop of Dimple 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky occasionally and prompted to comment here as I finished the last drop last night.
