I am relatively new to drinking Scotch. I've sampled various brands over the years at bars and from friends without too much interest, but last week I purchased a bottle of Bowmore 12 and was floored. It could be that I have never tasted an Islay before, but now I want to dive in head first. I am looking to purchase a single malt from every region to try and learn the differences. I was hoping I could get some suggestions. Preferably not too expensive, but I live in Oklahoma where booze is cheap so I can probably go a little higher than entry-level (probably around $50-$70 a bottle.) Cheers!
