Such a long time since I have bought a bottle of malt - I hadn’t realised the cost of a bottle of Lagavulin now! :shock:

But - It’s certainly a fantastic, big and powerful malt - well suited to cold winter’s evenings.

Enjoy!

Al :D

Now you’ve got me tempted - still love my Single Malt - although rarely stray away from the Ardbeg offerings.

Ardbeg has fantastic bottlings - probably equal or better than Lagavulin..............

Never go wrong with a bottle of Lagavulin in the cabinet, though.

I used to enjoy it but always fall back in Arbeg Uigeadail - Simply love it...and need a new bottle for Xmas treat.

I had a wee cycling whisky pilgrimage to Islay a couple of years ago. Stayed near Bruichladdich home of the amazing Octomore.

One day I had a tour round Laproaig (& collected my rent), a tour round Lagavulin and a very nice lunch at Ardbeg!

My last 3 whisky purchases have been from that wee corner...

All Lovely stuff

Got a friend who lives on Islay. She got me a bottle of Bruichladdich Octomore for my sisters 50th that was 2 years ago and she still hasn't opened so I've never tried it yet!!

Octomore

It’s lovely stuff but at up to £40 a nip - not cheap.
The locals were drinking Black Bottle when I was in the pub! :D
