Any One for a Scotch? - Page 250

post #3736 of 4254
So the county liquor stores just significantly upped the price of a'Bunadh, from ~$67 to $80. That's out of routine drinking range for me, as much as I like the stuff. Anybody have other sherry bombs that they're like to recommend that are more mid-priced? Cask strength would be great.


Glenlivet Nadurra just went up a lot too, like $20 a bottle. It was a sweet buy at $65, but $85?

Unfortunately prices are still skyrocketing because stocks of everything are dwindling.

Glendronach 12 is a good sherry bomb but prices vary so much I have no idea what the going rate is these days.

A' Bunadh is closer to $90 where I am, so it might still be a good price. Considering it's cask strength, it might still be worth your time. Especially if you add water to your dram, as it would last longer than any alternative.

Otherwise, my only other suggestion would be maybe Glenfarclas, which are still humbly priced IMO...

Glenfarclas 105
post #3740 of 4254
^ Havent had that one in years. I remember it having more punch (burn) and not as smooth as a'Bunadh.

Abunadh is like 40-45 gbp retail in the UK. Wait for your next trip or try to find a duty free that has it

I actually picked up Glendronach a couple weeks ago. It's not quite as good as A'Bunadh, but it's going at $62 around here now, which is a little more accessible. Might have to factor in the cask strength component for value though.

I'm still going to keep some in the bar, but I was going through the stuff at a reasonably clip before the price increase. Bit of an increase in the liquor budget there if it's a routine drinker.

That's almost as much as the A'Bunadh, $75. The 12 year is only $35, but I'm going to imagine you get what you pay for there.

You sure? Glenfarclas 105 is 30-35 € here. For one liter. (120 proof)
post #3744 of 4254
105 isnt (or at least wasnt) generally widely availible in the US. I think I started seeing it around here maybe 3-4 years ago. Before that I had it shipped from London. The price I am seeing is roughly what Gibonius has stated... And thats only a 750ml

what are some whiskeys/scotches that are similar to LAPHROAIG ?
post #3746 of 4254

The usual comparison for Laphroaig is its Islay stablemate, Ardbeg.  I find that most Ardbegs have more peat and less smoke/brine than Laphroaig.  Talisker is another widely available Islay that you might look at.
