Laphroaig 30YO ?'s

In what year did Laphroaig stop bottling the 30 year old? As well if any one knows the year it was first offered that would be great. As a matter of fact if you know anything of interest concerning this bottling I would like to know...ranging from production numbers to what your personal opinions of...

Re: Kilchoman 2010 Summer

What do you guys think of the Kilchoman? It sounds interesting to me but I see it is very very young. How is the peat and smoke as compared to other Islay malts?

Re: The Glenlivets and Nadurra taste alikes

I recommend the Ardmore quarter cask. It is not as high of an ABV but it is a good value I think and it does much to tickle the pallet. I think it is also a good introduction to peated whisky as it is not as strong in peat as the Islay Malts but the peat is there.

Re: £50,000 for this lot! This guy needs to be Comedy stage

This reminds me of a recent ebay auction in the US where the seller wanted to sell a collection of 12 Laphroaig 40 yo for $30,000 USD. I thought it would make much more sense to sell them off individually. What I found odd about the US listing is that it encouraged direct email with the seller (outs...
