More a Rant I guess.. but Whisky Related..The PRICES!! - TheEngineer - 12-21-2012 10:41 AM

I just called a company that I just go to when I was in MI as they had listed a Port Ellen 30, 9th release for a very good price. (Not complaining about the store as it is a good store with good people) It turns out that they are out of the 3 YO but have a full box of the current 2013 release. They asked me if I was interested. Now I've known for a very long time that this was going to cost $1000, potentially more.....but to hear them say it to me over the phone, $950 a bottle.....oh very ouch. VERY VERY OUCH... Might just skip it this year and be satisfied with my mini stock pile of Port Ellen.

Then again, I just picked up my Armand Rousseau order.......was that any less painful?

Have never tried the Port Ellen, but if it's a peaty monster, would probably not be interested.

Picked up two bottles of the Longmorn (SMWS #7.69) from the local retailer yesterday, intending to use as gifts, but may sock away instead. Didn't know if the society's shipment would come in before Christmas, so bought a couple of Bushmill's single malts as replacements.... along with a single bottle of J. Walker Double Black.
