For example, Big Peat is only £28.6 ex-vat, and it sells for $100 at my trusted local retailer.
I'm interested in trying some stuff from some good indie bottlers which we don't see at all here in the US, like The Whisky Agency, The Perfect Dram, BB&R. I'm hoping to keep the total order around £250 before shipping.
Stuff I'm already interested in (can't get them all if I want to keep under budget):
Nikka From The Barrel (can't get this in the US)
PC8 (cheaper in the UK)
Highland Park St Magnus (can't get this in the US)
Clynelish 1997/2010 from BB&R
Longmorn 1975/2010 Whisky Agency
Also considering some of the older Caol Ilas from the 1980s that seem to be priced well. Love Islay stuff, but pretty much enjoy anything else too.
Suggestions or recommendations for stuff you've had?

SMOS bottlings are difficult to beat. I generally stick to the cask strength stuff and i haven't had a bad one yet.

They have an excellent Caol Ila 8 Unpeated 64.2% with a decent discount ( check the special offers ), amongst others.
Want something different, buy a bottle of Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries while there is still some available.
If you want to go cheaper I would go for Yoichi 12 and if cheaper again The Nikka From The Barrel(best bang for ya buck you will buy) or Hakushu 12.

And get the HP too.
I certainly wouldn't pass over the Saint Magnus (he says, still anxiously awaiting its release locally).
And the Straight from the Barrel is borderline addictive!
Anyone with comments about the Port Ellen 1983/2010 from Single Malts of Scotland? Price seems REALLY good.
And then, 2 more new arrivals today caught my attention too: Caperdonich 1972/2010 from G&M CC, and Highland Park 1973/?? from G&M Rare Old.
Very difficult choices here. Might have to defer on some bottles for another purchase at the end of the year (if they're still around).
Caol Ila Cask Strength is a good one that isn't in the US
