Balvenie carribean cask should be nice!Posted 4 years agolaserstoatMember
Was in the same position recently and bought myself a bottle of Lagavulin 16 yr old. It’s a bargain at £50ish just because of the quality, depends if you like Islay whisky I guess, it’s smoky/peaty but so smooth and delicious.
My advice is to forget about “bargains” and buy what you want, you’re worth it. Have a good one!Posted 4 years agobob_summersMember
Long shot, but if anyone reading this is living in/passing through France, you can pick up some pretty cheap malts in Carrefour atm. Lagavulin 16 @ €44, Caol Ila @ €33 (in store only) as a couple of examples. Don’t know if that’s a bargain in UK terms but Lagavulin usually goes for close to €60 here.Posted 4 years ago
Popped in for some nappies last weekend and came out with my winter stash of malt 😳crashtestmonkeyMember

And the 15 year olf Glenfarclas is far better than the 12… Although I treated myself to a bottle of the cask strength Glenfarclas 105 a couple of weeks ago for my birthday, very pleasant…
The Balvenie Caribbean Cask is nice too, just coming to the end of a bottle. Got a subtle rum sweetness to it.
Also got a Bruichladdich 16 year old unpeated which is good – I’m not overly keen on the west coast malts because of the peatiness but this has a much more subtle taste to it while retaining the depth. There’s also a bottle of 19 year old Glentauchers in the collection, that’s regularly replaced – a very nice tipple for drinking and a bargain at £23 from the (surprisingly well stocked – malts up to a grand) petrol station across the road.
My local off licence is Gordon & MacPhail (look it up if you don’t know!)…Posted 4 years ago
