Importing booze to the U.S. drives the costs up pretty quickly as well.

I have no idea off the top of my head. Patrick might. Depends on the ATF and local taxes though.

Yeah, I called a bunch of other stores and they ranged from $90 to $100. The $90 one is right down the street from my house and I can get it on the way from my train (where it'll cost what I made tomorrow and today, but I'll try not to think of how shitty my job is), which is worth the extra $5.

At my two local stores, Lagavulin 16 sells for $79.99 at one, and $74.99 at the other (US dollars).

For comparison, Jura 16 sells for $72.99, Laphroaig Triplewood sells for $69.99, and Jura Prophecy sells for $76.99.

So I still haven't had Lagavulin, is it considerably better than Laphroaig? Because like I said earlier, I tried Laphroaig 10 recently and liked it, and I'm tempted to pick up a bottle of their 18 year old before I get the Lagavulin 16.

The Bowmore had a quite subtle flavor, but just smoky enough for my taste. Pretty sweet but in a pleasant way. Dad couldn't come though, so I drank it by my lonesome and listened to Hank Williams and people trying to sound like Hank Williams which was decent I suppose.

Still so excited about trying Balvenie 17, considering the jump in quality from 12 to 14 (I could've got 15 but figured I'd splurge this time).

Got myself a bottle of un-chill filtered, 22yo Ben Nevis. Matured in Sherry cask. Only tried it in the store. Can't wait for an opportunity to open it.

Also I'm slightly scared by the idea of drinking something that is older than me.

I've only had Laphroaig 10 and I liked it. I saw a Laphroaig 30 (!) at a liquor store near me for $300, and if I get a decent enough job before the end of the summer I might get it as a birthday gift for myself because IT'S OLDER THAN I AM.

Well, it was a really fine wine and whisky store, so, yes, they do. The bottom rack was filled with opened bottles. Also the friend who took me to the store bought a 21 year old, but even more expensive sherry cask finished Bowmore, so it was definitely worth the small amount of Whisky for the store.

It isn't too uncommon for wine stores here to let you sample their wines, so if you fand a wine store that also specialises in Whisky you'll have good chances at being able to sample Whisky as well.

Huh. I've known that these stores exist, but I never visited one before. And my friends intention to buy a Whisky for up to 100€ might have helped. Had I asked for a whisky for up to 50€ they probably wouldn't have let us sample the Ben Nevis (which was more expensive than I had wanted when I entered the store).


I also like the idea of this Whisky being from a Single Cask, so there are only 816 other bottles in the world to taste like this one.

I know of two stores that do sampling in store. One is here, in Alkmaar, bless their hearts, the other ... Berlin. I bought two ludicrously rare and expensive Bowmores there five years ago. The first of which I finished of yesterday, as it happens.

Opened it tonight when I got home from work, my dad was satisfied about the present and...wow. Such a jump in quality over the 14, which is itself a jump over the 12. What I love about the Balvenie is that their different ages are all aged differently. This one is so good, I'm still sipping my glass slowly, enjoying every bit.

My liquor store (Bev-Mo, for Patrick's benefit) left a bottle of Jura Prophecy unguarded on the shelf.  I had to fight off three other old heavily-peated-single-malt-scotch-drinking codgers, but I was successful, and managed to acquire the bottle.

It is very good, and well worth the tussle :).

So I opened the 22 year old Ben Nevis. I don't exactly have a reason, I just felt like having a dram.

It is delicious. Not as heavy as my typical Laphroaig, not as sweet as some Sherry matured Scotch tends to be. A bit fiery at 47%, but still smooth. Wonderful. I have bottle 675 of 817 bottles taken from this cask, cask number 2908.

And I'm drinking something that is several years older than myself.

Well, just got my Dad some of this for Father's Day:



Have yet to try it but its the only distillery in the country to make English Whisky (in Norfolk). Is it safe to say nobody else here has had this?

Another interesting fact: this whiskey outsold its Scottish rival two to one at Christmas 2013 (at the one supermarket that supplies it), likely due to the Independence vote in September!

Not safe to say! (yes, I've shared a bottle with a friend.)

I've also had Welsh "Chwisgi", but not the one you can buy now.  This Wikipedia article (in fact, the Internet as a whole) appears not to know about the abortive start of a distillery on the Lleyn Peninsular in North Wales in the 1970s; I note that the first reference in that article is to a book by a late family friend, the person brought my first wife and me together.

Anybody here frequents reddit /r/scotch?  I got a bottle of the /r/scotch 7year old cask strength ledaig.  Some amazing stuff right there.

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)

Lagavulin 12 will be my next bottle then, you've convinced me...assuming I can find it. And it won't be until I move into my new place whenever that is.

Off the top of my head, if you prefer the smoky ones....

Laga 12, Talisker DE (this is a big maybe), Laphroaig Portwood Edition, aphroaig Quarter Cask (skip the PX unless you want sweet and smokey), Kilchoman Machir Bay is a pretty good choice.

Now if you were willing to try non-Scottish whiskys... Kavalan or Amrut peated casks might be worth a try.

I am willing. Bah, I need a better job so I can afford any of this.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."
