Lagavulin 16-year-old

Bought – Wine Rack, 30th July 2013

This is the malt that rekindled my interest in whiskies. At the start of July 2013 my brother and I found ourselves enjoying the company of a cluster of 1st cousins as we sat outside a hotel on a warm summer’s evening (in Aberdeen, which is a miracle in itself!). The first beer had slipped down nicely and my cousin Gordon went to the bar for the next round. He came back with more pints and a Lagavulin chaser (for everyone, not just for him). I’d forgotten how gorgeous this whisky is, if I’d ever tasted it in the first place.

After the dust had settled, delight turned to shock when I discovered how much a 70cl bottle of Lagavulin is these days. Didn’t it used to be £20?! Perhaps whisky has risen in line with petrol prices. Thankfully Lagavulin do a quarter bottle which didn’t break the bank. Gawd bless ’em!
