Great presentation but a bit steep for me!

I'd read that it'll consist of 15 chapters.. pressure on getting the next one, then the one after etc. Good luck collecting. Was the first one about £700? Wonder what they plan going forward for releases, and what the last chspter will cost.

They are here already. Meet uhm.. Bessie €450 for a 25 year old. Fancy packaging but is deffinitely on the steep side.

That one is for travel retail and is different to the 30 year old as that's 700. Wouldn't mind that 25 year old mind. I'm going to try and get one each year but god knows what the second release will cost.

Some inside info,
The next release will be a 40 year so a substantial price increase and will be released sometime around Jan 2020.

Laphroaig is my favourite whisky but there's no way I can afford £699 on a 30 year old in a (very nice) presentation box. Far far too steep, but I'd expect it to sell well as anything Islay does these days.

Must admit I've fallen for it in a big way stunning presentation box and the bottle itself getting good reviews just hope they don't go silly with the prices on the second one.

This is a flipper dream isn't it? It'll take a while to collect them all, but that's an easy 3-digits profit in 5-10 years time.

Distilleries know it and yet they keep releasing this stuff.

Yes it would be easy to flip this one straight away as now tricky to get hold of but I've decided I'm in it for the long run as long as prices don't get to silly. I have four collections on the go now and that's enough for me I'd love to finish this one day but at one release per year it's a long term investment.

I predict there'll be a load of the 30 at the next auctions which fail to make £600...

You bet. It is so frustrating that people want to flip it right away - what's the point of that? With dozens of these bottles listed, they'll hardly be making any money. Just penalises genuine buyers with all the extra charges etc.

Greed , pure and simple that is the only motivating factor, anything for a quick buck.
