Welcome to the forums.
Favorites are the Balvenie 21yr Portwood, Highland Park 18yr, and The Macallan 1851 Inspiration. Johnnie Walker Blue King George V is one of my favorite blended, but not worth the tariff for me. Compass Box Oak Cross is also pretty nice, in a much more affordable range. On the lower end, the RedBreast 12yr is also tasty, though I haven't had the chance to try the 15yr vatted.
Yeah, I'm happy to drink JWB King George V when someone else is buying.
I have never got the Blue Label. Sure, it is a solid drink, but no where close to the price...LCBO charges ~$250, I grabbed a bottle for $90 in the Caribbean and I still think that is too much. I would compare it the Opus One of wines. Good drink, grossly over priced, and wows those who don't really know what they are drinking with label shock. Just my thoughts.
