Provided that they always bottle tha same 2 whiskies under the 2 "fanatsy names" I can assure You that

Personally I place a cut-off on what I want to spend. I mean I do not care so much if the whisky is distilled in 70's or 90's provided is an Ardbeg SC OB... The thing that matters to me is the price. I'm ready to spend 'till 250-290 pounds for a SC. Above that sum I'm not buying whichever cask/year ...
