Details of Laphroaig 18’s arrival to the U.S.August 11th, 2009
As many of you already know, Laphroaig 15 year old is being replaced by Laphroaig 18 year old. (That’s why you have been having trouble finding the 15 year old, if you’ve been looking.)
Here’s what I know about the ETA, etc., on the new 18 for the U.S., as told to me by their PR company:
It will start trickling in this summer. You’ll start to see it on shelves within the month. The price will be 20% higher than the 15 year, approximately $84.99.
I’ll be getting a review sample soon and will offer my thoughts.
