Maybe I should add a warning here for other single malt lovers. I just went a liquor store to buy myself a new bottle of Lagavulin 16. I couldn’t find any on the shelf and didn’t think anything of it. That is until the clerk came by and told me that for the foreseeable future Lagavulin will not be exporting to the US. It seems that their supply can’t keep up with demand.
Is this true? Do I have to hord my last dram of 16? And why Lagavulin, it only seems to appeal to a rather small group, even among scotch aficionados. If it is true, what can I drink to forget about this tragic loss?
