But for a more reasonable dram the Benriach 1968 34yo for US$230 (Dunacn Taylor) is a very good dram. Or maybe a Glen Elgin 1968 37yo (Gordon & MacPhail) for US$180.
When it comes to close to 40yo whisky, there will never be very much to choose from.
not too expensive and quite good...
Another option might be a Glenfarclas always good

The Bunnahabhain 34yo (doesn't say it's a 1968 but it is , Managed to just get one of these for £150 ) and if you can find it (it is still available but at a price!) The Bunnahabhain Auld Acquaintance . DTC's Bunnies from 1968 are supposed to be very good .

Tasting Notes by George S. Grant (Glenfarclas Brand Ambassador)
A dark amber-bronze colour. Full-bodied Glenfarclas, very deep and mature, complex fruits, sultanas and marmalade. A strong powerful Glenfarclas, I believe it is the strongest we have ever released at this age.
The aromas are intense with rich tones of honey, vanilla, liquorice, cinnamon, raisins and a hint of peat smoke.
This whisky has many layers to delve through. It is like a layered cake with fruit on top, honey, caramel and toffee in the middle, with dry oaky spiciness and a slightly smoky finish.

68' vintages at TWE
I found this one within the past year so, with some searching, there's hope you might procure one, though it may take a premium price.
Glenury Royal 1968 / 36 Year old
Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky
A venerable, brilliantly-balanced mouth-coating floral beauty. This is very special whisky from a tragically lost distillery.

Bowmore from the '60 are indeed great! But don't expect to buy a peated whisky here! I tried several of these and none of these was peated (or maybe slightly)! Profile: tropical fruits, flowery perfumes, grapefruit... really awesome!!
Hard to find though!
Anyway, a lot of other very nice options have already been mentioned!
Good luck anyway! Let us know what you've chosen.
