That is one of my favourite whiskies of all time.  Up there with the Ardbeg Ugadail (sp?), and the Yamazaki 18.

Bought a bottle of Laphroaig quarter cask and a bottle of Abelour 10 in Luxemburg. 60 euro. Pretty good.

I just had a glass of Cardhu 12. It was the second bottle of whisky I bought, not long after buying my Glenmorangie Original. I had it remembered as being kinda boring, but apparently that was just to my untrained nose. Noticed a lot more fruit flavours than I thought. It's very mild compared to the other Whiskys I like, and a lot better than I had remembered. It definitely pays off to revisit Whiskys.

Hardly. It's diluting it with water to a large extent that's the abomination.

Ugh.  Yeah, watered-down whisky is even worse, though the two often go together (bah, ice).  And I will admit that there have been days this summer when I wish I had whisky stones just because holy fuck was it hot.  But for both whiskies and ales, I'm a big fan of them just being a few degrees shy of room temperature.

No no no ... both can be wrong! Cold whisky is as much a horror as diluted whiskey!

Went out to dinner for my birthday, ordered Lagavulin 16. I was worried my expectations were too high.

They were not nearly high enough. NECTAR OF THE GODS would not be high enough praise. It's pricey, but now I know as soon as I get a better job, I'm buying a bottle.

Dare I ask how much, and the name of the place so I can avoid it?  I've been getting it at <$10 US a glass, and usually with a strong pour.

A steakhouse in New Jersey, but I never plan on buying it a shot at a time again, I'll just get a bottle, now that I've tried it.

(But holy shit, it was twenty-eight dollars, and it wasn't a huge pour either. It was plenty for a pre-dinner drink, and enough to let me know I wanted a bottle when I had an occasion to buy it, but god damn, I'm glad I wasn't paying.)

But if there was a restaurant that had <$10 pours of Lagavulin, I would have dinner there every week.

I'm glad you at least enjoyed it, but yeah, much cheaper by the bottle.

The Thai restaurant/bar I often go to has it in the 9-10 range, Laphroaig for 8, Ardbeg for 9, and plenty of others.  The bar manager knows he's making all the money off the well shit he's selling to students in fruity mixed drinks, so us serious drinkers are paying very little if any markup on the top-shelf, especially the whiskies.

California.  Rather high cost of living where I am, as well.  But there are enough places where one can drink on a budget if they know where to go.  Hell, in SF, I could drink for less than I do where I am now, but then again, I knew the owners of a few bars and pubs, and at my local, there were a lot of old-timers who wouldn't let me pay for my own drinks, nor let me buy them a round.

Yeah, if you could afford to fly to the other side of the US just for a night of drinking, the cost of the drink would be irrelevant at that point.  What's really sad is that one place that closed down (think of the dive that Jimbo is usually found in) *was* the worst, possibly only true dive in town, but they had an amazing whisky selection, including having Yamazaki 18 year for $15 a glass.  The new upscale incarnation of the place added at *least* $5 to all of their top-shelf stuff, so I found another bar.  I don't think they're moving much of that inventory.

There's a place here in Livermore that does em for $16. Never eaten there but I have definitely ordered drinks there a few times.

I was pleased to close the week with the observation that the local monopoly retailer had added 18yr aged Laphroaig to their selection. Savoring it slowly.

I hope to taste Balvenie one of these days. Your descriptions are enough to warrant a test.

I love me some Laphroaig, and Islays in general, but I can't afford them very often, and usually have to content myself with cheap but acceptable Irish like Tully.  As far as I'm concerned, nothing made from Maize can legitimately be called whisky or whiskey.  Calling it bourbon is acceptable, though.

I've had their 12, 14 (Caribbean Cask) , and 17 (Peated Cask). I'm assuming you meant me, I don't recall anyone else mentioning Balvenie. If you can spring for the 17, go for it. It's enough of a quality bump to be worth the price bump.

So in whiskey news, I acquired a bottle of Lagavulin 16 today! Not sure when I'm going to open it. I may wait until I have cause to celebrate.

Lookie what my Godchild gave me for Xmas.
That is one serious flavor. Charred oak cask et cetera. Not sure it will become a favorite, but it is a fine whisky, and it is nice to be loved.

Ok, the kid's only 5 months old. His Mum bought it from a duty-free shop on a ferry trip.

As always, Sláinte.

My dad is a serious whisky drinker and I've always wanted to indulge in the hobby myself but I just hadn't had a taste for it yet.

Last week I drank a shot of his Lagavulin 12 and it was gooooooood. I usually drink Gin, but after that I don't think Gin will cut it anymore. So now I bought a bottle and will have to buy two or three whisky glasses for the prospective visitors that will no doubt visit soon.

Oh, nice. I've only had the 16 but I've heard 12 is better in some ways, so I'm jealous.

I've heard 12 is better

I know, you've heard it here.

had Lagavulin 16, it was also stellar

12 was better though.

Also @Method of Madness, Lagavulin 12 is better than the 16 (to me) because its cask strength and holds a fair bit more flavor than the 16.  I'm quite partial to cask strength stuff (Aberlour A'bunadh, Laga 12, Amrut Cask Strength)

I got my bottle for 45 €.

Well as I'm not going to carry an opened bottle of whisky on a transatlantic flight, it's all down to you mate.
