I've heard really good things about Monkey Shoulder, I haven't run across a bottle yet, but if I happen on to one, I'll make sure to pick it up!

Lots of good answers, and while I agree with the Ardbegs, Taliskers, etc. I find it stunning that there's yet to be a mention of Highland Park 12.

Uncorked the gifted Christmas bottle of 12 yr Glenfiddich this evening. Accompanied with a Camacho Coyolar Rothchilds puro cigar.
Excellent, stout cigar and very smooth, easy neat Scotch. This scotch was a pleasant surprise-very smooth with moderate, warm finish. The scotch did not overpower the cigar, but was a welcome complement. I recommend this scotch highly.

If you like that one give Macallan 12 a go. I bet you will like it a lot

Goody's down the road typically has either Glenmorangie or Glenfiddich regularly on sale for $30 with two glasses, so that usually fits the bill, but I'll sample anything they have in that area that's marked down.....pops got me a bottle of the 12 year Chivas for Christmas, it's decent, so that's what I have for now....any good 12 year at or below $30 hits the mark for me...been lucky enough to sample some amazing 18 year courtesy of my buddies from time to time and they are impeccable.

Well, for me anyway, it would be sometimes. Laphroaig Cask Strength is an example of where their standard 10 yr is better than their CS.

Preferred would definitely be the Balvenie 12 Double Wood.
In a pinch Glenmorangie 10.

But for a step up I go to Lagavulin 16 or Ardbeg Uigeadail. Both yummy.

For a slight change of pace, I reach for Highland Park 12 or 15. Considered an "Islands" scotch and fantastic.

For a bigger change and moving to a Speyside, I go with Aberlour 12 or 16 or Balvenie 12 or 17 Double wood.
+1 with the only exception being I replace Laphroaig with Taliskers.

I am a big fan of the Tomatin 12. Nice flavors and probably one of the lowest price single malts available.

18 year highland at Costco in Ft Wayne for $38.00

Worth $38 - I wouldn't pay more. Maybe I'll change my mind after the first bottle from the case I bought.
