Peaty... smoky... will definitely pick this up on my next visit.
Excellent

It's very good but for the extra £3 I'd rather have the Quarter Cask from Amazon. It's a different beast altogether - 8% stronger too!
Medical note: You shouldn't be drinking or eating anything that tastes of peat. Just a note for the alcoholics out there.(aka whisky drinkers).

It's more concentrated and strong. Despite no age statement, quarter cask is preferred for peaty whisky fans.

It's expensive for a NAS, just like Talisker storm/skye these are nearly always found somewhere on offer for £25 - £15 below list price, which is what they are probably worth
I got the Quarter Cask a few weeks back from Amazon (£25, back in stock now I think)...took a few weeks to arrive at the time. Sent on to my brother who loves Laphroaig!

Not just whisky drinkers though...go to the north-west of Scotland and a lot of the drinking water comes out of the taps a fetching shade of brown...I can guarantee you that's had more exposure to peat than whisky, where the barley is malted over a peat fire (no physical contact between the two).
Hats off to anyone who can drink this ..pure TCP in a glass.

But surely they add shed loads of aluminium to the drinking water to make it sparkling and not brown? .. Alzheimer's or brackish water?.. Mmm decisions decisions .

And they ship the water from Fiji?;)

Decent tipple and bargain compared to elsewhere. Drink with a nip of water.

This deal ends on Sunday (24/4) remember.
Costco also seem to always have Llagavulin for £40 including VAT, always seems a decent price for one you don't see on offer that much
is this inc vat do you know?

That is a good price. Lagavulin and ardbeg uiguidael are lovely stuff.

Yes, it includes vat.
If you are new to whisky I would advise trying this before splurging... It's an extremely acquired taste and to new drinkers can taste more like some kind of medicine or antiseptic! Personally I am a fan of peaty stuff but just using this as a chance to offer a bit of warning!
