Right, just bought a bottle. Let's just pretend it costs thirty-seven pounds fifty... and not...

I have tried the 18 year batch of that brand, and judging by the scaling in price from the 10 year to the 18 year, I would have to say that you really ought to savour those drops well if you got a 40 year old vintage. :P

Why? It is a bit like this, we work pretty intense and hard, for now it wielded results. We do not squander our gains, but we live a good life. Sure, there are those who are less fortunate, and there are those who have a hard time.

 

I decided I could afford it, and I decided to buy it. Does that make me a bad person?

 

One thing though. You keep writing Whiskey were it would be whisky. There is a distinct difference, Whisky is a Scottish product. Whiskey an Irish one.

I am all the jealous of that. I love the 10 but I don't quite have the cash to afford something 4 times that age :cute:

 

EDIT: Oh dear Lord, that is expensive. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

Cheapest bottle I could find in Holland is €28,95 that is an online shop. They charge about €6,95 for transporting it to you, even if you order six bottles transport is the same (only in NL and BEL). http://www.drankgiga...ig-10-year.html

If you don't know http://www.drankvinder.nl, it is absolutely excellent. And I meant that the Laphroaig 40 is expensive, I got a bottle of the 10 for 25 Euro on http://www.drankdozijn.nl :P

Merch! Great to see you, just yesterday I saw you had been absent from the forums for a while. As for the Laphroaig, yeah, savouring it indeed, a dram at the time, maybe slightly less :P

You should take it as an IV drip to prolong the delight to match the value. :P

Oi, self mutilation is not my forte. Maybe K. could do the honours, but that is something I see not happening.
