I didn't realise this is still out there, where are you buying from? Is it still £500? I wouldn't have thought this would be a great investment being the price it is already, although I think Laphroaig is pretty collectable so a great limited edition like this could be sought after in a few years time, who knows.

This whisky sounds like the kind that I would love, but at c£500 a bottle is prohibitively expensive and hard to justify. But buying as an investment I would apply different price criteria and so if I could afford to buy a couple of bottles and sell one in X years to pay for both then that would work for me.
I seem to recall that there was an on-line tasting of the Laphroaigs back in November/December 2007. Panel was not overly impressed with that particular bottling of 27 yo (if it is indeed the same one).
With the bottling starting at such a premium already, combined with todays economy, I think you'd need a fair bit of time to recoup your investment even with the Malt Maniacs behind the quality of the product.
