I want to give a gift of a single malt scotch to a friend. He has tasted Laphroaig 10 year old scotch which he says tastes like medicine and Glenfiddich 12 which he says is OK but not "single malty enough". He normally drinks bourbon but his wife says he would like to "branch out" to single malts as an after dinner drink.
I want to spend less than $80. Any recommendations?
