Ask for airport-specific edition - at CPH airport you could get a cask strength Highland Park 14 for like 50 quid.

And ask for special discounts not on the website, they tend to have stuff stashed ...

Lately auction prices have been going down. You can buy a fair amount of stuff now at better prices - especially after Brexit and as some auction houses have split EU / UK bottlings. You can easily ge ...

Interesting to note the Lagavulin is *not* its usual prompt sell out - mix of price and age not appealing?

I think they're just not enough flippable to justify bulk-buy. The margin isn't gonna be t ...

I got some good deals from SWA last auction. Brexit seems to have done a good job at slowing down the auction nonsense.

One can only hope prices will keep decreasing over time, who knows what'll h ...

Same really like Benromach as well. Havent had it in a while, but remember it being really heavy on the peat also, even tho it is described as subtle on most reviews/ tasting notes.

Everything is s ...

For that matter, most whisky can be used as disinfectant - it doesn't have to smell like one, too :D

PostForum: Single Malt Whisky   Posted: Wed May 05, 2021 10:58 am   Subject: Laphroaig Launch 10 Year Old Sherry Oak Finish
I've tried a sample yesterday night. It does what is says on the tin really, enveloping your Laph around a syrupy, fruity and chocolatey layer.

In my very personal opinion it also mellows the in-y ...

Whiskybase market is also an option. They charge an 8% on bottle price, if I recall correctly.

I agree with webdunk that the right selling place might be different depending on the bottle(s) - and ...

For contrast, Wemyss have released a 28 year Bunna for £150

An unpeated one, of all things, which I've happily bought and I'm looking forward to taste.

As for Ardbeg, from a business perspecti ...

PostForum: Single Malt Whisky   Posted: Thu Feb 11, 2021 11:21 pm   Subject: Single malt for around £40 any recommendations for a novice
I'd throw in the mix the Compass Box Artist Blend (£25 or so I think) as well as the peated Great King Street (28 discounted, otherwise above 30).

I find these 2 blends to be miles ahead of the e ...

I think it depends, like someone else mentioned, on what's the % of non-UK auction purchases. And even more so EU vs US vs Asia.

Hopefully whisky prices will come down all across the board, not jus ...

I really love rye whisky and I was so looking forward to taste what a rye cask would do to Ardbeg juice, but there's only so much greed I can take from distilleries before I'm put off from buying thei ...

110 quid for 15 years old is hella steep, but I got a bottle of Tali 15. I’ll try and get a sample somewhere before committing, I can always return it after all.

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.
