Ideally something I can just order on Amazon...

I am looking to spend somewhere between £50 and £125 (I could go a little higher for something exceptional)

I've seen a nice looking and sounding whisky called "The Nikka" ... has anyone tried it?

Or do I play is safe and just get him a Blue Label?

He likes smooth, he doesn't like smokiness. I bought him an Amrut once and he really didn't like it.

Recommendations would be must appreciated. Thank you.

We always buy Jamesons which is well below your budget.

He likes his Jameson's. I've got him a bottle of that from the little one.

Sometimes they do premium or limited / special editions.
you want a Malt or jamesons, Blue label is a blend. Any of these would be good:

I'm not a whisky drinker, but Nikka Whisky From The Barrel was highly recommended in last week's Waitrose 12-page whisky supplement.
However, it does say it has a "subtle smoky taste"...!
£50.....doesn't like smoky (neither do I), smooth but not sweet......

I drink this...?....but you pose a difficult question.
they are mostly £40-90 but this one is over £100, but should be excellent:

It has to be The Macallan. A range shown here:

Can't argue with that LC.......I should have married you lol.

I think I'll go with Tora's English offering firstly - OH will appreciate that - but I may also select something from Brainiac's Macallan range.

He's still got his main present too.
That was a little higher for something exceptional.
Johnny Walker though ?
FWIW next time, Nikka is lovely. Makes a good gift for someone who enjoys their whisky.
