Looking for a Laphroaig

Postby MrPitiful » Sat Nov 13, 2010 5:40 pm

Not a particularly collectable bottle, just one that I tasted and enjoyed. Can't find it anywhere:

Laphroaig, Murray McDavid Bottling, 1988 bourbon cask 2108, bottled 2001 at 46%.

Does anyone have one or know where I might find one?

Not likely to find many of these on the shelves anymore. The only young MMcD Laphroaig I still know about on the shelf is a "Leapfrog" that has been priced for collectors. Clearly, the price on that one is for the bottle and not the contents.

If you are serious about finding one of these, contact royal Mile whiskies and if they find one they'll let you know. Here's the link:

Problem is, it's discontinued and may be quite pricey to acquire if they even find one!

Not exactly what you are after, but there is a bottle of 40 year old Laphroaig in a presentation pack (exactly like the one gifted to Sir Sean Connery), on the shelves of Federal Wine and Spirits in Boston, MA (www.federalwine.com). Price $3 500 I believe.
(I vainly thought it would be a couple of hundred, so won't get to try it!).
