Re: Lost Distilleries – the moment when it’s all gone!

Inverleven can still be found at quite reasonable prices,especially G&M bottlings.Could be worth stashing a few.Rosebanks are starting to get pricey as are St Magdelenes.Cant afford PE's anymore.If only i'd known 20 yrs ago what i know now.

Re: Brogans Legacy (2006)

Used to buy this in my local Co-Op for about £24.99 but haven't seen it for about 2 years now .Not that keen on Bushmills but liked this one as it seemed to use more sherry casks.If i saw it for £20 I'd definately buy it.
