I'm a totally whisky-noob, trying to get into this right now.
I would like to give a friend of mine (28 ) a tasty whisky for his birthday, but I have no clue what kind might match to him.
He is from Mississippi and totally loves Johnny Walker, either pure without any ice, or in bars mixed with coke (strange...^^). He's a little bit of a gourmet I think!
Well he doesn't like Jack Daniels or Jim Beam at all. I couldn't even tell ANY difference, cos I don't know anythink about whisky!
So, I'd say I give him something like Johnny, just maybe something new. I think he tried the green, black, blue and red labels already.
It shouldn't cost more than 35$, hopefully some of you have an idea what would be the right thing for him
uhm..I'm from germany, so hopefully I can get get it all from here..you never know o_O

as you have posted the same question in a German forum I will only answer here to save time.
One of the lead malts in the younger JWs is Cardhu. The 12 year old is around 30.-€ or a bit above.
In older JWs there is Talisker in noticeable quantities so this suggestion is to be considered.
I f you do want to buy a single malt that does not stray too far from a blend but is a very fine single malt in its own right try to get a Benromach Traditional. Smooth and mellow, lots of very fine flavours. A malt that wants to be discovered and then rewards you with an abundance of tastes. It is around 30.-€ as well.
