I need a good scotch for my Dad.

My Dad likes a good scotch now and again and I want to treat him to a bottle. I don't drink scotch so I really have no idea what to get him brand wise. Im not looking to spend too much, around 100. I know he doesn't like the stuff that tastes like you are drinking a pile of peat.

Any suggestions?

My suggestion would be a bottle of Aberlour A'Bunadh. Not at all peaty, just a well balanced scotch with a beautiful caramel aroma and a nice, long finish.

Go to the LCBO or your nearest liquor store.

Focus on brands like Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Macallan, Balvenie, Talisker - you cannot go wrong with any of those. For your budget, you will most likely pick up either a 12 year old or a 15 year old bottle of scotch, depending on the brand.

Kavalan. Macallan. Glenmorangie. Hibiki.

Try Chateau Louis on Kingsway. They have a great selection. Superstore Liquor also has a great selection.

That's such a personal preference. Why not just ask him what he likes - tell him you want it for yourself. Once you get his preferred brand, choose the grade to suit your budget.

Try Ballantine's Branded Scotch Whisky. There is small bottle and large bottle.
