I have never seen a pricing phenomenon in the scotch world like that of the Lagavulin 16yr. Here in Canada, I have seen it for as low as $58 to as high as $106, and it blows me away. There is one place where I live that has it at $58, then exactly a 95 second walk away is another store that has it for $98 (I've timed the walk cause I was so baffled).
I think some places try to cash in on its reputation so the mark up must be astronomical.
