OK, so I think I know lots about wine, but I know diddley about scotch. I tend to like it on the rocks but (as with wine) there are tastes that I like and those I don't. I'm not really into the better stuff these days, so I'm looking for anything that comes close to the taste of Chivas for about 30% less or so. I've tried Cutty @ around $23 for 1.75L and find it too strong for my taste (I wish I knew more of the language to use). J&B was even more tough for me.
So, what does anyone think I'd like in that price range <$25 for 1.5L. I guess than translates to upper teens for 750ml. Pricing is for SoCal if that helps.
Also, any thoughts one vocabulary to describe this would be helpful.
