Whoever winds up with the Lagavulin will have gotten the better end of the deal (slightly). Whether it be for drinking or collecting, the Lagavulin will be your better bet (while I didn't love the Laphroaig 30yr, I thought it was one of the most interesting and difficult to pick apart while drinking).

I say get the Lagavulin 21 and don't think twice about it. I am a big fan of the Laphroaig 30, but I'd take the Laga 21 anytime over it and virtually any other scotch on the market.

[quote=I<3Bacon;3222008]There was a stockpile of the 2005 Talisker bottling of the 25yr old found in Brooklyn recently. Seems like a couple gentlemen secured all the cases and then proceeded to unload them on ebay for ~$150ish (at one point, one of them was selling them for $139 shipped/bottle).

If I were to purchase a bottle from the ebay link, how would I know if these bottles were legit? Legit labels and bottles etc.?

Sounds like an excellent deal and wouldn't mind picking up a bottle or two to enjoy and one to collect.

The deal isn't as good now... best I see at the moment is $149 shipped, which still beats the $185 I can get the 2008 bottling for.

If they are NOT legit, they faithfully reproduced the contents of the bottle () as well as the individually numbered bottle labels and boxes. The ones I received also had the box sleeves.

Most counterfeiters tend to go for ancient bottlings that are harder to vouch for (like old 1970's Ardbegs or vintage 50's/60's Taliskers and the like), are worth a hell of a lot more than $150 if they were real, and have far simpler labels. Also, for whatever reason, the majority of the counterfeits seem to be coming out of Italy.
