Ooops! Lagavulin 25 Yrs

Postby r0b » Wed Mar 05, 2003 10:19 pm

I just spotted it at TWE. I had no idea it was available.

I was whining about the 12 cask strength is £45, but this one is a whopping £149!

Hell, don't they want people to try it?!

£149! Ouch. I heard it was coming but £149. HP and MaCallan are only £115 now.

It makes 21 Finlaggan (Lagavulin the importers tell me) good value at nearer £50

Hi Guys ,
I think UDV have employed Dick Turpin as their pricing manager ! There's an 32 year old Oban due at £190 and i've heard there's going to be a 36yo Dalwhinnie for about £350!!!!
I'll stick with the 12yo Laga at £45 a bottle.

Laga Fans - Now would you rather have 4 bottles of Laga 16 AND 10 pounds change or three bottles of the cask strength AND 5 pounds change or a bottle of the 25 year old? Mmmm, I know what I think.
Anyone with funds to throw away can get the 25 at Loch Fyne for 139 pounds.
