    Re: Lagavulin 16 - WOW!

    I picked up a bottle of Lag 16 in South Africa recently to keep on hand as my "special occasion" pour. It was on sale and cost me about $75. Normally that bottle is around $100 around here. The nice thing though is that there is often hardly any mark up at the bars (compared to the US at least). You can often get a pour for $8-10 bucks.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    I compared Ardbeg 10 to Lagavulin 16 last night and I definitely enjoyed Lagavulin more. Better balance, more sweetness, whereas Ardbeg was a mouthful of ashes.

    And FYI, about purchasing liquor at Costco in California for those that don't have membership, you don't need to be a member to make alcohol purchases.
    I'd take that Lagavulin off your hands.
