Admiral, Would it be fair to assume that if you took 20 different, freshly filled identical casks each from a different distillery and stored them in the same location under the same conditions for the same length of time, that the end result would be much the same?

I have Number 204, the (retail) price has gone up since i bought mine, but not by much, but i guess as the 2000 bottles of the Scapa 25y get bought and/or used up, the price should rise further.

But nothing is for sure???

So much for the freedom of trade and movement. It seems all th e member countries want what is best for them and the spirit of ‘togetherness’ has disappeared.

I don’t want to get political here.

But it does make you wonder why we all bother [in Europe] if we can’t even have free trade.

There is nothing wrong with blends. I drink a fair few myself. An I wouldn't say that drinking only malts makes you a snob. But with so many malts to try, the blends are taking a bit of a back seat these days.

I think peergynt323's thoughts were about spot on.

Out of the three you suggested, I would re-open Glen Mhor. I had some of the G&M 8 year old today, very nice indeed.

Out of all the others it would be Millburn. Its a shame to see it sat there, no longer a distillery. The place looks sad and depressed.

Caol Ila is part of the Diageo group. And I believe that they do offer tours there.

Find out more at..

If you join up there, they will send you nice little book about all of the Classic Malts.
