Ha yes, my friend sent it to me earlier today.BTW, unwisefool : Is this the article you read about TJ's Finlaggan?
See: Trader oe's Scotch Whiskies
If so, it does sound interesting but I hate buying "mystery" bottles even if they are cheap; same applies to Costco's offerings.
The author thinks Finlaggan's is a bottling of Bowmore but I've got already a great bottle of Bowmore 15 on the shelf (as well as Caol Ila 12, which the author thinks it might be as well). Earlier versions may been from Lagavulin and, if that's still the case, I'd know for sure it if I smell/taste it because there's nothing subtle about Lagavulin.
I wouldn't normally bother trolling thru bottles of unknown origin just because they're cheap and supposedly good BUT (for you) I might take a flyer and buy a bottle of Finlaggan (if it really costs only $20) just to see what I think it is.
Will let you know if I do but frankly I'm more interested in the "secret
19 yr old Highland single malt for $49. LOL!
