ETA I don't know if you can find Johnnie Walker Blue for $100, but you can try the Black or Double Black (or other colours), why not?
I like the Blue, but I wouldn't pay Blue prices for it (typically around $180-$220). That said, the Green is rather tasty and usually found for around $70. It's popped out of existence a few years back, and now seems to be selling again. I haven't had the new version, but the classic green I felt was the best bang-for-buck in the line.
