dfk41 Most expensive bottle I have bought is a Springbank 21 year old from 2020…cost was £199. Sounds like a lot but a year later you are paying 2-3 times that for the same bottle. A few years ago these bottles would sit on the shelf for a while…now it is virtually impossible to find any at RRP.
Best bottle I have bought is a very tough one to answer - However I will go with the Lagavulin 16, the very first bottle of Scotch I bought way back in 1998. Never had anything like it…took a while to grow on me, but was my “gateway” scotch to peated malts. Newer bottles of Lagavulin 16 imo are nowhere near as good as they were back in the 90’s, however it could also be that I prefer cask strength releases to the general releases - the annual release of the Laphraoig cask strength never fails to disappoint.
