    Somehow I keep running into this during my travels and it keeps getting cheaper. Found two 2008s for 89 plus 9% tax today and picked them up. Now I've got bottles of 2006, 2007, and 2008.

    From the mid 90s:
    White Horse Lagavulin 16 OB
    Talisker 10 Map Label OB
    Glen Keith 1983 OB
    Longmorn 15 OB
    Glenkinchie 10 OB

    As well as:
    Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist (Bottled 2006)
    Glenlivet 12 (for $13)
    And here is the promised picture!

    That Longmorn 15 is a really nice find! Do some Googling and you'll find that most lament the loss of the 15y for the current 16y.

    Another kudos for the Longmorn. I haven't had the current 16 to compare it to, but I drank through a 15 a few months ago that was absolutely delightful!

    I am glad to hear it. The LAWS reviews had me a bit worried as they aren't great (although how could I worry for the price I picked it up for), but I just watched Ralfy's review of an independently bottled Longmorn where he says something to the effect that the 15 was as good an OB as you could find anywhere. I am looking forward to cracking it open and expanding my single malt knowledge.

    Once, in an early, under-educated dusty hunting frenzy I bought liter of tax stamped Old Smuggler for $14. That bottle is still haunting the back of my cabinet. I can't brign myself to even cook with it.

    good to know. I've purchased a few older blends I've found but not that one. Seems like every mom and pop shop I go to has a few still on the shelves.

    Any thoughts on Laphroaig 15? I may have a line on a few bottles and its been on my dusty hunting radar, but I've never seen it nor had it. Worth picking up? For what price?

    I haven't had it, but I've read it's preferred by some to the 18 that replaced it. I'd probably be inclined to buy one around $75 give or take.

    Far superior to the 18 IMHO and if you see it buy on sight,I put a few back which was not enough and kicking myself ever since.
