I walky feel Laphroaig have dropped the ball on this one....
I am a FOL (which I know means nothing in the grand scheme if things) as in sure mist if us are.... The main reason I like this is I get emails from them about the current year's cairdeas release.
Usually there is no dramas..... I get the email I log on the site and I buy my 1 or 2 bottles and life is full if love for another 12 months!! But not this year..... I feel no love
I received the email announcing this year's release and as soon as I got on the site not 30 seconds after getting the email, they are sold out? What the hell is this?
This is obviously great news for Laphroaig but its a kick in the teeth to the thousand of FOL that get an email saying you can get up to 3 bottles only to find you can't have any?
Did Laphroaig even look at there online store before sending the email? You would think they would use there friends of Laphroaig membership numbers to gauge how many bottles to release and judging by the huge number of negitive comments left in the 2013 cairdeas review select I'd say this wasn't the case...
Usually I would be sniffing around the website for a month or so waiting for the release but this year my work has kept me in remote areas of Australia with limited time and limited net and I trusted Laphroaig to be professional enough to to send out the email announcement after the stock is already gone??
Very disappointed and **RANT OVER** haha
