Scotch help for Christmas gift

kwjd | Dec 7, 2010 12:22 PM

I posted this within a thread in the Ontario forum, but thought input from people here may get better results.

I'm looking to buy my dad a bottle of scotch for an xmas gift. He isn't into peaty/smokey scotches as much (I'd like more toned down than Highland Park 12). His favourite is Scapa 12. He also likes The Glenlivet 12, Glenfiddich 12 and Johnny Walker Black. I want to go a step up from these, but still in the general flavour profile.

Here is my short list that I'm considering... what would you recommend from this list? (We have a government liquor control board monopoly as our only store, so selection isn't the best. If you suggest something not on the list, I may be interested in hearing about it, but I likely won't be able to buy it for this Christmas).
