What's your favorite? Single malt only.

Looking for some good recommendations (under $250).

PS: do not reply with any Glens, Lagavulin, Mcallan

    If you want a really good malt, try some Japanese stuff - for example Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt.

    The japs do it best. Try for yourself and you'll understand.

      Nikka FTB and Yamazaki 18 hit with the best of them.

      Agreed! I have sampled a few Japanese malts and they were darn good!

    What's the point of asking this question then saying no replies like Legavulin?

    Lagavulin 16 is a better single malt than pretty much anything you'll find under $250 if you like scotch with complex flavors.

    Anyways, balvenie is a good distillery if you like smokey flavors.

      This.

      If you like Lagavulin I can also recommend Ardbeg. Ledaig is pretty solid too. Aberlour if on a budget.

      I've already had those many times.

      I'm looking for good recommendations, other that those mentioned above.

    This Single Malt snobbery is ridiculous.

    Imagine if someone insisted on single spice cooking, or single instrument music.

      There is nothing wrong with blended whiskey in general. It adds consistency of flavor YoY. However, the uniqueness of single-malt whiskey is intriguing as well -- particularly when you start talking about cask-strength single barrels. In the bourbon world, I can taste the difference between two bottles of 4-roses single barrel. They are sublte but pleasantly different. No snobbery on my part, but I do generally enjoy single malts more than blended.

      That's a good one.

      But I've had that several times.

      Any more recommendations?
