Great price for Laphroaig.

If anyone can find it cheaper then I want to know about it as going to pick up a bottle tomorrow! :-) Wish I had when I saw it on Sunday.

Mix this with a cigar aged or chairman's reserve rum and grapefruit bitters, shake with ice and pour neat. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!

1st Of July 2007 - Only ever seen it at Mint Leaf in London. I'm drink Speysides normally but the smoky taste of Laphroaig really works for that cocktail.

nice whisky - the quarter cask version is particularly fine.

Nearest asda about 6 miles unfortunately.
#5
Definitely an acquired taste this stuff oO

pay a bit more (or sometimes same price in supermarkets) get the quarter cask as worthinger says its 48% and comes with your own unique plot of land, nice touch,
definitely an acquired taste, a very fine whiskey

@£20 it is the best deal of the big supermarkets (chkd on mysupermarket.co)

pay 7p more for quarter cask laph @ sainsburys £20.07 !

Laphroaig isn't particularly smokey or peaty, it does however taste a bit like TCP. I'm not knocking it though - some people are into that. :)

The "professional" way to drink whisky is with a small amount of water to bring the flavours out.
#10
I would say:

add up to a fifth of water (NOT tap water) - try spring water

don't use ice cubes as this reduces the temperature and dulls the taste

never use mixers with "proper whiskey" as you're just covering up the true taste and it's a waste of a decent dram oO

If its good enough for Prince Charles.........;)

How much is it normally?
#13
love it or hate it taste for whisky drinkers. I can't abide this brand. Good price though, heat.

Sacrilege! Mixing a whisky as nice as this with anything other than water totally defeats the purpose of buying such a fine dram in the first place.

I personally wasn't impressed with the quarter cask: it was really lacking so much of the flavour that makes Laphroaig so distinctive. I would recommend that you try this ahead of the quarter cask... I also think that every bottle of Laphroaig comes with the free square foot of land on Islay, not just the quarter cask.

Eh? Laphroaig is generally acknowledged as the second most peaty/smoky single malt (a close second to Ardbeg, which seems to have disappeared from every shop round here that used to stock it).
#15
The Quarter cask is around £22 at the moment too, got the last bottle in Gosforth ASDA on Monday.

It's quite regularly at the £22 price point at Sainsburies. I find Morrison's also have decent Whisky deals on.

The supermarkets own brand taste the difference stuff is pretty good too. It's great value given the £15 price point.
#16
I love Laphroaig, also may i add i got a bottle of Bowmore (which tastes very similar but a bit less peaty) from Morrisons last week for £16.77. Bargain! :D
#17
Thanks, I will be off to buy a bottle. Never understood the thing about adding water. Doesn't do anything for me. Different if it's a stronger cask strength version, then it definitely needs a touch of water. I like Laphroaig but it's not as nice as the king of Islay Malts, Ardbeg 10 year old.
#18
If you like laphroaig you really should try CAOL ILA especially the 18yr I think its far superior to Laphroaig but has the same Peaty taste without that medicinal overtone.

Having said that if you can get a hold of, try or afford the 30 and 40 Year Laphroaigs they are truely out of this world!!

Couldn't agree more; nothing beats Ardbeg. However, it seems to have disappeared from all of the supermarkets near me over the past six months or so. I can't seem to find it in-store anywhere. Have you found the same?
#20
I have tried adding water to my Whisky many times over the years but I really dont like the smell or the taste. Straight up sipped slowly whilst taking deep lungfuls of the Smokiness does it for me.
#21
Laphroaig is cheaper in Morrison's at the moment I bought two bottles yesterday for £18.99 which is very cheap!

Two 70cl bottles for £18.99, or £18.99 each? Can't believe it could be the former, but if it is, I know where I'm going on my lunch break.

Really getting in to my whiskey's. Hoping to get a bottle of the 30yr old Laphroaig for my 30th Birthday next year. Bought a bottle of the quarter cask and its gorgeous, even better than the 10 yr old. Think I prefer it with Ice rather than Evian. Will keep an eye out for the Caol ila, heard good things about that one. Laphraoig in any form is deffo a marmite whiskey!

Talikser is another of my favourites.

I have a couple bottles of Ardbeg and a bottle of Bowmore at the moment I'm slowly making my way through so I haven't been shopping for any lately. I tend to buy it and put it away when it's on offer. I usually get it from my local ASDA or Sainsbury. I shall have a look later when I'm out.

Obviously not, grow up!

Personally I found this too medicinal, I'm a Speyside man, good deal though.
#28
Great stuff, first bottle of whisky I bought.

I do prefer Lagavulin (standard 16 yr old) and I would also recommend the Caol Ila. This is a great little set for Caol Ila.

Caol ila Collection / 3 x 20cl - £38.95

For those who drink Ardbeg, is it the standard 10yr old that you would recommend? i would like to try it but currently working my way through the above set, a Lagavulin Distillers edition and a bottle of quarter cask so not sure i could justify it!
#29
Wow, that's great.

works out at £45.50 for a full bottle equivalent, not bad to try 3 different single malts. try finding a pub serving single malt at £1.63 a shot!

I've tried a few of the Ardbegs and have not been dissapointed with any of them. Some of the rare bottlings are now quite expensive. Even the 17 year old I had a few years back that I paid £50.00 for is getting scarce and you can now expect to pay £200.00 for a bottle. But I keep coming back to the 10 year old and for me it's the perfect whisky. It is I would say the peatiest of all Islays and It does have that slight medicinal flavour, so it's not to everyone's taste.

Can't beat the 10 year old. The original and still the best.

I find the talisker a little watery if that makes sense. The 30 yr laphroiag is what I would imagine warm engine oil to be like to drink (not the taste of course) its scarily easy to drink a friend and I did a whole bottle one new years eve it really is beautiful..should be I suppose for £300 odd a bottle!

For those who like the smoother speyside types I would highly recommend the Balvenie signature another too easy to drink whiskey.

Personally can't stand lagavulin I find it tastes like dishwater very dissapointed in a 16yr I bought recently just doesn't have the Punch that Laphroaig and Caoll ila have.

I do have a bottle of Laphroaig 1989 Vintage Feis Ile 2007, Islay Festival. That I keep looking at on the shelf but can't bring myself to open it as it was £48 and thats fetching £162+ now. Might wait and trade it in for a 30 or 40yr depending on the appreciation, although I may be 60yrs myself by the time I can trade it in for a 40yr!

cheers. i do like the medicinal and peaty notes, lagavulin is similar. Have you tried the Blasda or Uigeadail? they are both a little more expensive without being ridiculous.

i think ill get the miniature taster pack with the 10yr old and the blasda, give them a whirl.
banned#37
Best Whisky in the world, as are most of the Islay malts. I also love Bowmore and Caol Ila. Seen this in Bowness on Windermere last week in Bargain Booze for 19.99, I know its not much cheaper but every penny counts.

Unfortunately I was on holiday and am now home in Scotland so I'm off down to Asda.

Cheers

Bruichladdich's PC07 was awesome! I do have a bottle of the 18yr First edition, its very nice but I do find it a little sweet has overtones of Peach and Chocolate very odd but nice.

Meh Whisky is scottish english and whiskey is irish english really makes little difference.

And as the origins of Laphroaig hail from Ireland (well there are slight arguements about this insert long winded clan history) I think that in context of the thread Whiskey would be quite acceptable to use.
