Haig's

A friend of mine came across an old bottle of Haig's. I know a 'wee' bit about whisky but this one is a bit of a challenge valueing it!! The bottle is a three sided dimple with wiring around it. With it being over 40 years old the labels are rather discoloured: Old Blended Scotch Whisky By Appointme...

Talisker 59.2% Limited edition

I stumbled across a distillery bottling of Talisker with 59.2% alc. The back label says specially bottled for the swiss market. There is no age statement....
Is there any one who can give me some more info on this Talisker?

A Dutch friend took 1 bottle with him, from germany, when he came over last week. We both agreed it has a lot of lagavullun karakter and at Cask strenght it's a powerfull one at that.
It's under the 'Jack Wieber' label bottled.

Yummy dram, need to get some more into New Zealand.

I came across a bottle of The Antiquary, from 1970. It's in a peculiar shaped bottle with an 8 point star. It is a blend but I haven't heard anything about this particular one.
Has anybody got some more info on this?

Morning Jeroen,

If you haven't had a good Dufftown yet, I would and can recommend the Dewar Rattray 29 yr old 56.1%.
If you want it contact Ronald Wuijster in Westervoort (Arnhem) (026-3707713). He is the agent for this company.

Groet
