I am not a Whisky expert - indeed, far from it, but I do enjoy heavy, peaty whiskeys (e.g. Lagavuilin, Laphroaig, Talisker).
Was thinking of spending £170 on a Lagavulin 25 yr old.
Would the more knowledgeable people on here endorse that choice, or perhaps suggest something different????

Just a few Thoughts .....
Caol Ila 25yo ( Cracking dram , have had the two releases so far both very good) .
Brora 30yo ( haven't actually had these but all the peet-heeds i know rave on about it ) .
LFW's Living Cask Anniversary Offering (ok it's a vatted Malt , but i tell you the 1981 Brora and 1976 Glenlivet are great !) .
I was thinking about one of these tasting packs (look to me like pretty good value for money and a great selection).
Islay Triple Selection 2
Lagavulin 16 YO has been restricted due to demand outstripping supply. Even harder to locate is the premium "Distillers Edition". The Lagavulin owners have a second Islay Distillery - Caol ila - and we have added their excellent 25 YO Cask Strength bottling to make this Islay Triple Selection a very special opportunity for any Lagavulin enthusiast.

Price: £129.36 ex-vat £152.00 inc-vat
Islay Collection 2005 / 5 x 20cl
1x 20cl from each of the following Malts,
Caol ila 12yrs, Caol ila 18yrs, Lagavulin 12yrs, Lagavulin 16yrs & Port Ellen 1979 / 25yo 5th Edition. An excellent way to try a selection of great malts, including the small batch Port Ellen. More Info…
Price: £72.34 ex-vat £85.00 inc-vat
Of course, I could tolerate this if it only cost around $150, but since it was over $450 at the time, I figured it wasn't worth it.
