Here are my favorites so far… Four Roses Small Batch, Four Roses Single Barrel, Elijah Craig, Buffalo Trace, Stranahan’s, Jameson, Forty Creek, Jim Beam Black, Jim Beam Bonded, Larceny.

charlie.g.hague – This was hard. It’s so tough to only pick 10. I tried to pick very reasonably priced and easily obtainable whiskey, as well as including the main regional variations. Slainte. Bulleit Rye Elmer T. Lee Green Spot Monkey Shoulder Dalmore 12 Oban 14 Highland Park 12 or 15 Laphroaig 10 Nikka Coffey Grain Springbank 10

Dimitris Damilos – I can recommend the following 10: Strathisla 12, Aberlour 10, Macallan Green Label (Select Oak), Talisker 10, Woodford Reserve, Jura Origin, Ardbeg 10, Hibiki Harmony, Monkey Shoulder, Highland Park 12

Jorge Ripoli – Ok so after reading all the comments got a lot of repeated whiskys, so ill go with the ten most democratic jajaj: -Dalmore 12 -Highland Park 12 -Laphroaig 10 -Angel’s Envy -Balvenie Double Wood 12 -Glenmorangie (Nectar D’or) or just the 10 -Hibiki Harmony -Maker’s Mark -Jack daniels (any) -johnnie walker (black or double black)

flloooke – Talisker 10 2. Jura Origin 3. Laphroaig 10 4. Elijah Craig 5. Bulliet Rye 6. Johnnie Walker Double Black 7. Bowmore Darkest 15 8. Oban 14 9. Jameson Black Barrel 10. Macallan Amber Now if we are talking $100 Canadian I might have to swap out Oban and maybe Macallan or Bowmore (Saskatchewan has ridiculous liquor taxes/prices), but I think these are all well under $100 USD.

Jason Cooper – Buffalo Trace, Old Pulteney 12, Peat Monster, High West Double Rye, Four Roses Single Barrel, Cutty Sark, Makers Mark, Glenmorangie 10, OKI Bourbon, Wild Turkey 101

Peter Schumacher – So, I’m going to try to list off some that are very diverse, but also have deeper notes that help train your nose/palate. Buffalo Trace is a great bourbon, it’s very sweet and round. You can find notes of cherry and bubble gum in it if you think. Laphroaig 10 is a smoke bomb Islay scotch, but if you ponder long enough you can find sweetness in there. Tullamore DEW is very neutral and bready-tasting. Think of things like dry leaves, grass, hay, etc. Also, try Pendleton 1910 for a rye. It’s very smooth, tastes like maple syrup, and there’s a little baking spice in there too. Most of these are pretty affordable too. Laphroaig should probably be the only one over $35/bottle, actually.

reptilianskin – 10 whisky’s for variety: For mixing: 1. Red Label 2. Canadian Club Blended: 3. JWBL 4. JW Double Black 5. Chivas Regal 12 years old 6. Chivas Regal 18 years old Single Malts: 7. Glenlivet 12 years old 8. Glenfiddich 15 years old 9. Lagavulin 16 years old 10. Buffalo Trace bourbon If there were more choices I’d throw in a couple more bourbons, and an Irish whiskey. But I went with whisky that is readily available in my area, and provide options for mixed drinks as well as sipping whisky that provides flavour profiles from sweeter Speyside, to traditional Highland and Islay scotches. If you don’t want mixers, I’d substitute in Auchentoshen and perhaps Writer’s Tears

UnboundOdysseus – So for “most variety under $100”, I’m going to use prices my American friends pay, since Ontario is a cruel, cruel place to buy whisky. 1. Lagavulin 16 2. Talisker 10 3. Springbank 10 4. Aberlour 16 5. Four Roses Single Barrel 6. Wiser’s Dissertation 7. Glendronach 12 8. Benromach 10 9. Ardbeg 10 10. Glengoyne 15 11. Dalwhinnie 15

TheHunnyRunner – Writer’s Tears, Lagavulin 16, Aberlour Abunadh, Glenmorangie Nectar d’Or, Balvenie Doublewood, Smokehead, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, Whistle Pig, Glenlivet 15, Jim Beam signature craft
