Seems like I used to pay about 18 US dollars for the stuff(1986), things have changed!
Surely you must mean Lagavulin 16 y. As far as I know Laphroaig never did an official 16yo except for a vintage 1970 exclusive for the Italian market.
G&M also made some 16y for Sestante, Italy.
And 12 year old Talisker? How old are you???
The only 12 year old I can remember is one that I saw at auction, exclusively made for the US market. If I'm not wrong this bottle fetched £1500.00 at McTears in 2001 or 2002! I know there was also a cheaper one by J Walker & Sons, but I have never ever seen this one at auctions or in real life.
