$50 Lagavulin

Run, don't walk to Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa which has announced a weekly special of Lagavulin 16 year old for a mere $49.99.

This is one of the world's great whiskies, an Islay giant with a peat punch and an underlying flavor complexity so vast that it's hard not to take another sip to keep the experience going. (see my review here)

Of late, a shortage of the 16 year old has driven up prices so that it usually goes for $70 or more. So, at $50, it is a steal and probably the best non-sports related thing to happen in Orange County since, well, ever...
