That is one hell of a price. I have had that whisky it is very good and very different from the OB Glenlivets. Rather grassy and herbal.

I couldn't agree more. What a steal.

The airport shop had OP 21 for £56.95 so I got another. Also got a litre of Laphroaig PX finish.

Came back from a recent trip to Islay. Had a wonderful time at Laphroaig, Ardbeg, and Bruichladdich, and spending tons of money at the bars drinking some wonderful treasures.

Brought back Octomore Comus (had to get this because I was a big fan of the 02.2 Orpheus, and I love the concept of peaty whisky in Sauternes barrels).
Also filled the valinch cask at Bruichladdich- they had an almost 10 year old Port Charlotte in a Chateau Latour cask, and that tasted too good to not bottle one for myself to take home.

Ardbeg "Ardbeg Day".

Kind of a lame name to be honest. Is this even a committee release... doesn't seem to indicate so on the bottle. Just another release then. But from the small sample I had a few weeks back, it was very good.

After only being a member of the WM forums for a week, i was given some good ideas for next purchase, it ended up being a signatory bottling of Dallas dhu 30yo.
