The Laphroaig 30yo really is a bargain here right now compared to all the other rising prices. I bought one last year for $200US, opened it and went back to get two more immediately, thinking they would all be gone, but there's still some around @$220-$240. Still wish we had gotten the wooden box or at least a special tube. Anyone got a box they want to part with for my display?
I agree the Laph30 is a special whisky, as mentioned a little weak on the finish, but what's there is intricately unique. I only spend that much on a single bottle when it's: really exceptional quality, rare(nearing extinction) and still rather reasonably priced and this meets all those criteria. About to talk myself into one more bottle.
