Laphroaig 18 Year Old release date?

Postby qhodgson » Fri Apr 17, 2009 5:24 pm

John Campbell's email to the friends of Laphroiag earlier this month announced the phasing out of the 15 year old and the introduction of a new 18 year old. I haven't seen anything about when this release will happen or when it will be available in the US. Does anyone have information on this?

I have been wondering the same thing. I search the web about once a week to see if there has been any new updates, but still nothing. Maybe there will be an update in next month's letter from John Cambell. :?

ETA: If they're determined to drop an expression, I think they ought to lose one of the 10y. 8y is a huge difference in age and likely to translate to a huge difference in price - leaving a big hole in their lineup, I think.

Shouldnt be long now...been released over here for a few months.
