Normally priced at well over £40, if i got a bottle of this for Christmas I'd be well pleased, plus I'd think you'd spent the best part of £50 on me. ;)
This is a full on Islay malt whisky. Laphroaig was my favourite until a friend bought me a bottle of Ardbeg, flavours are just as powerful but more refined. If you have a glass in the evening, you can still taste it the next afternoon.
