Having been unable to decide between purchasing a Glenrothes 1984 (anyone tried this yet?) or a Scapa 14 next, I chose to buy both, starting with the Glenrothes 1984 (which is not opened yet: I still have a 1989 waiting its turn). Today, I was just about to go buy the Scapa 14, but stopped at the last minute, for no real reason, and I'm glad I did! Just found out that the friendly and very helpful control state (maybe the only good one of the 18 in the USA) north of here is now listing Scapa 14 at $34.99 USD, which is much better than the local price of $45.99 USD. Their web site (http://www.state.nh.us/liquor/
) shows no inventory yet, but it should arrive in the next month, if past history is any predictor. And their web site also shows Laphroaig Quarter Cask listed (no inventory yet either) for $44.99 USD. Sweet anticipation! I should note that they also have great straight bourbon prices (e.g., Elijah Craig 18 for $28.99 normal price and sale priced as low as $20.99, Evan Williams Single Barrel bourbon, 1995, for $19.99 normal, sale priced as low as $15.99) and frequent sales on single malts and straight bourbons.
