Pre-ordered 2. No reason not to, given you can cancel / return at any point. Now hopefully we'll read some reviews by the 10th Smile

Really interesting that we're starting to see Amazon Exclusives now but I don't see how it would be possible to get a taste first unles they start selling samples?

£89 feels like quite a price if you compare it to Lagavulin 16.

And yet it's good value compared to the now sold out Laphroaig 15yr 200th Anniversary which was a lovely dram.

We didn't see the previous Bowmore 19yr on offer? Although we did see it become non-exclusive...

It is pricey compared to other malts, yes. However, given the recent prices of the 18, in terms of aged Laphroaig it seems 'fair'.

Plus this is at 48% as opposed to 43 like Laga 16.

I posted an announcement here http://www.scotchmaltwhisky.co.uk/laphroaig16yearold.htm about the new expression. It will be a limited release of 11,500 bottles available from Amazon here in the UK and Europe and some selected retailers in the US

Was it released elsewhere also?

Given the regular reductions to the Highland Park exclusive and whisky in general on Amazon I wonder how this will be handled.

Same. Not in a hurry to get it anyway, as long as I eventually get it and drink it!
