Re: best whisky auction site in united kingdom

I have now bought from them all now. I think all are good. As a seller, you pay less commission with whisky auctioneer and just whisky...

I find whisky auctioneer very good to deal with. I have had a good experience with SWA too.

Re: Where to sell?

SWA, as mentioned, charge the buyer 10 pct, the seller 10 pct and a £3 listing fee. VAT is also charged on the 10 pcts, I think. So they take more than 20 pct of what the buyer pays for the bottle. Whiskyauction.com is about the same. A little cheaper because of the VAT. And whiskyauction give small...

Re: Wich distillery to visit in Ireland?

You can do tours of Kilbeggan, Bushmills, Bow Street (museum, no longer operating), Midleton... Not sure about Dingle. You have to arrange a tour in advance at the Cooley Distillery. It's more an industrial type plant.

Re: Midleton Very Rare 40%

The price you'll fetch for it has gone down a lot over recent years. You could get maybe 500 euro now? I've seen them go for less too.

Re: Midleton and Bushmills

You might be able to get them at www.celticwhiskeyshop.com. They got a full collection of Midleton recently and they're selling them individually. They get that Bushmills from time to time too.

Other than that, keep an eye on ebay and www.whiskyauction.com

Re: Redbreast 15 vs Bushmill 16 vs Greenspot

I'd go for Redbreast 15, if you can get the original version. Although the newest version, which may not be out yet, is supposed to be of a similar quality to the first.

Re: Glen Grant - its all greek to me

Spelt and spelled are both right. Centre is spelling this side of the pond, and probably in Canada? "Its all greek to me" should be "It's all Greek to me"... Glen Grant ages very well. I like it a lot. There's some very good independent versions too.

Re: Wm Grant aquires Tullamore Dew

I'm not sure, but I'm sure if they had to they could increase production. Actually, one of the reasons they have not put the old Daly Tullamore stills into operation in Kilbeggan is that the Cooley plant isn't anywhere near full capacity production.

Cooley have some nice ones, but they're a little expensive. If you can get an independent bottled Cooley at cask strength, generally they're very good.

Re: Bushmills Millenium Malt 25 years old

Yes, the World of Whiskies one is a special bottling and you'd be expecting more for that one. I saw one for sale a good few year ago, but can't remember what it went for. It also came in a box, while the others were packaged in a slieve. You're picture won't open for me. Maybe it's a problem my end.
