Husband's 40th birthday - which whisky to get??

Postby RedElaine » Thu Sep 19, 2013 10:01 pm

Hi
First time visitor to this site, and I confess, I don't like whisky - I don't even drink! However, my husband loves the stuff and is about to turn 40 so I thought I'd put my teetotal buying habits to one side and purchase him a bottle.

His week to week whisky of choice is Jamesons, but he does have a bottle of Talisker 18 which takes pride of place in the cupboard and is looked at lovingly on many occasions. However, I am buying the whisky as part of a box of 40 things for his 40th birthday so it's can't be as expensive as Talisker 18 which I understand is about £70. I'm looking for something around £35-£40, which is similar to Talisker (whatever year....). I was thinking Lagavulin or Laphroaig. I prefer Lagavulin (because of the design of the bottle if you can believe that) but it's more expensive than Laphroaig and I read on this website that some people don't rate it as much.

Advice needed please........
