    Whisky & More had the Lagavulin 16 from its grey-market sources for $89 last week

    Agreed. It's really overwrought and suffers from a hook paucity where it counts. The kicky little bits of the verses promise so much more than the chorus eventually delivers.

    Oi

    Quite. But by the same token, I need to temper my anti-Laphroaig jihad sometimes. Just looks rude. Sorry folks.

    Interesting that of all the different regions and styles available for possible recommendation the three with more than one mention so far (the two above L’s, and Oban) are all from the isle of Islay

    Ok then, to add something different: I really enjoy The Balvenie, The Macallan, and Highland Park.

  • B Jones,

    I picked the laphroiag after all. Sorry :-) I'm at my dad's for Christmas and while I'm not really partaking at the moment, my dad got his other whiskies out, mostly blends, and we had a comparative tasting, finishing with my bottle. It came off as whisky, slightly nicer whisky, even nicer whisky, what the hell's that? It's like the tears at the back of your throat after your house burns down. I like it.

    Bravo

    I might have said - where's the photo of said prize opened and all?
    but have to agree, that's an impressive word-picture of a taste experience!
