Scotch advice

OK, first wanted to thank pkt, zelezo, and I think dshans for input on my previous quandary...

Now to the point... kinda took one of your suggestions and started a little weekly tradition. Had a bottle of JW Platinum, gave it to a buddy that lives close, and started having a couple glasses weekly (when I was in town) with him after work on Fridays. It turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. Forgot how fantastic a good scotch could be.

What I'm asking now is for recommendations. We have almost finished the bottle (just enough for a little taste before we open the next cork). We've decided to do 2-3 glasses a week when we can, and would like to concentrate on bottles that are either top shelf (obvious must try), or delicious and not mainstream.

Your recommendations are appreciated.


PS.... the JW Plat was delicious and hands down liked it more than any JW I've had. Highly recommend. I've had all of the JW mainstreams, and several of the top shelf +++s.

Why not mainstream? Some delicious scotches out there you can easily purchase. Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Ardbeg....or even a cheap peated whiskey like Connemara

Ok, I will gladly give advice, but I do have some questions.

What other whiskies have you enjoyed?
What flavors/aromas stood out positively?

What whiskies have you tried that you didn't enjoy?
What about them did you not enjoy?

Is there a price range that you would like to stay within?
What are the parameters, do you want scotch blends, or maybe some single malts or maybe even less mainstream (but can be very good) Japanese whisky (which is a close relative to Scotch, much more so than Irish or American)?

I am off to take my kids to swim lessons but I will check back later.
