Best Scotch in the Expensive price range

Updated on February 3, 2015

What is an expensive price for Single Malt Scotch Whisky?

Let me establish the price range I decided was 'expensive' for a bottle of Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

The minimum price range is 50GBP, $80 US Dollars or $78 Australian Dollars.

The maximum price range is 100GBP, $162 US Dollars or $152 Australian Dollars.

Of course these prices will shift as the exchange rate does and are based on currency conversions in January 2015.

One of the best ongoing bottlings from this great distillery. This is more lightly peated, allowing its fresh, coastal maritime character to shine through. This is a real gem.
