Monkey Shoulder FTW.

What is that? I once shared 8 40s of a beer called Crazy Horse with 3 friends, now that was some good beer.

I think Glenlivet 15/French Oak is a good value for a great drink at about $40 or so.
good drink but a bit more expensive then $40 in NY

Is triple-malt a fancy way to say "blended whiskey"?

They mean the same thing AFAIK. Anything more than a single malt is blended, e.g. double malt, triple malt.

Scoth is different than Irish whiskey, Canadian whiskey, bourbon, tennessee whiskey, etc. Different types of drinks

(1)(i) “Bourbon whisky”, “rye whisky”, “wheat whisky”, “malt whisky”, or “rye malt whisky” is whisky produced at not exceeding 160° proof from a fermented mash of not less than 51 percent corn, rye, wheat, malted barley, or malted rye grain, respectively, and stored at not more than 125° proof in charred new oak containers; and also includes mixtures of such whiskies of the same type.

you should def add bourbon to the poll!
it is much different than scotch like asking if orange juice and apple juice is the same
best bang for your buck in scotch is glenrothes special reserve (or maybe its calles select reserve) its always on sale for like 3 bottles for 100
and a good bourbon can be had for less than 50

I personally like Scotch.  I think he best value is the Tomintoul 16yr which I know has been mentioned.  Also love all the Livets and Dalwhinnie is also very good.
I don't like Vodka but everyone is raving about a new bottle called Crystalhead.  The bottle is shaped like a skull and people really like it.
