As long a we're recommending... Laphroaig 18 year cask strength. This stuff is excellent. Clynelish is a good single malt, particularly if you like a more mellow, slightly sweet scotch. You can get a good 12 year I think. The 20 year is nice but will run you over $100 If you have the money, try a Dalwhinnie 29 year. Costs about $250 or $300 a bottle. Cragganmore is good. McCallan makes a 12 year for about $40 that isn't bad. As for the Irish Whiskey - try Connemara. It is a peaty Irish Whiskey; much better than most.
