    Picked up a liter of Craigellachie 13 at duty free recently. A decent price and spicy and sweet, a nice everyday drinker.

    Laphroaig 10 was on sale at my local place for $39 (typically around $50 here). All this commentary reminded me to pick up a bottle.

    I knew my palate was shit, I just didn't realize it was literal.

    Agreed. Make it nice and smoky -- like Laphroaig.

    Seriously, though, at least this all seems to be in good spirit.

    Hahaha yea make it nice and smoked.

    Idk it's probably the several pages of comparing smiley whiskey to cow shit that I found ridiculous

    Jeez... Laphroaig may be smokey and peaty but it surely doesn't taste that bad. Definitely a very strong flavor profile for a noob to learn to either adjust to or realize that it will never be their thing.

    I ordered the Ardbeg Committee release Kelpie (stay away idfnl) while Astor Wine was having an Islay sale. I also grabbed a Balvenie 12 Triple Cask while at the duty free for some summer sipping and for friends who like the sweet stuff. Great price at the Canadian border, I think it came out to $52 USD for a liter bottle.
