Scotch Whiskey gift for the Scotch drinker who has everything?
Hello! I'm looking for a Scotch gift for a friend who probably has all the classics. So I'm looking for something somewhat obscure, but great that they may not have heard of. I'd like to spend under $50 but would consider more if it's fantastic :)
I was hoping some of you might have an under-appreciated favorite. I'll need to be able to order it over the internet.
Thanks so much!
I hate to be discouraging, but this is tough. First, you haven't said what he (or she) has already. A Scotch "Collector" probably has a couple dozen bottles at least, and most of them will be over $50. If he loves a "bargain" < $50 scotch, he probably already owns it.
Forging ahead anyhow...
If you think he loves smokey, peaty Islay scotches, Michel Couvreur is excellent and little-known, and on sale for $50 (plus shipping unless you can buy more an qualify for free shipping to NY and nearby states):

I ran this past the husband, he suggested The Macallan Cask Strength. A bit less well-known but your friend may well have had it. Prob $55-65 plus shipping.
I would suggest to consider whisky tasting glasses; your friend may already have these -- have you been over for some Scotch and seen if he has these? A set of four plus shipping would be in your price range.
