A Single Malt Scotch Whiskey For Around $19.99

from - smijer

Ok, so here I am... still on the wagon... nearly three months now... dutifully making a run by the package store for wine for my wonderful Significant Other, and I decided just to take a peak at the scotches before I checked out. What should I find? Ten year Speyburn, priced $19.99. "What the heck?" thought I. Here it is, on my desk, easily within arms reach.

What now? I'll let you know what I decide.

Update: Dang, that tastes good. My plan to keep one leg on the wagon is to limit myself to weekend only, and 1-2 glasses per weekend day only, and no more after this bottle is gone.

I LIVE IN OHIO,USA AND SAW IT FOR THE SAME PRICE AS YOU. IS A "PEATY" FLAVOR LIKE LAPHROAIG?

No, the Laphroaig is unique in that regard. The flavor of Speyburn is unremarkable. It is very smooth, though.
