All my bottles and boxes used to go in the recycling but now I keep the boxes and corks.

I think people get cautious over this kind of request because of the market for fake whisky.

yes, thats why I questioned about the box

I know people like the Dalmore bottle to use for things like lamps and decorations what with the stag on the bottle and all that but requesting the box too makes me wonder what for

having just checked for some reason I actually have 2 empty 15 bottles and 1 box
and 2 empty 12 bottles and 2 boxes

I'd like to make a lamp, I could do with with some help there, a ready made kit would be ideal Wink

I've put LEDs inside some bottles. Not quite a full lamp but I like them. One day I'd like to turn a Tamdhu bottle into a real lamp.

These are examples of the fake cork and LED string lights:

A lot of my old bottles have been thrown in recycling bin. All modern bottles I have open just now, they all have boxes and soon empty but guess you're not after them if I read your request right, as talking bottles from last 5 years.

The only old bottling nearing its end with me is a bottle from around 2000, just a standard 12 year old from The Speyside, which rebranded to SPEY in recent years. Collectable? Probably not
