I've heard some discomforting rumours regarding Lagavulin 16yr SM in particular. One of them is they've been unavailible from wholesale stores for the wee shops to sell here in NY anyway for a few monthes. The reason, I'm told, is b/c it's two fold: 1) Lagavulin isrunning low, and 2) the distillary is changing the bottle's size either from 750ml to liter (which is fine w/ me ) or from 750ml to smaller (bad, very bad ). I've the sizing part go both ways here. I'm looking for anybody who has something to add to that or at least correct and nullify these rumours. THANKS!
