Old Pulteney RNLI Limited Edition

The blurb about this edition is: Old Pulteney Sets Sail to Support the RNLI Last month representatives of Old Pulteney Single Malt Whisky were welcomed on board RNLI lifeboat, Roy Barker II, to mark its donation to the charity - one of UK’s most vital and long-established institutions- which will pr...

I agree with the other UK posts, Talisker was on special offer in Tesco recently and I recently regarded it as a fairly cheap malt. I don't know about the Speyburn. Even when not on special offer, I'd still regard Talisker as an average price malt here. Is US demand different from UK demand? I don't...

That’s interesting, thanks, Di Blasi!! I’m assuming you mean the Ardbeg Young Uigeadail that was available to committee members? I don’t know if it still is, but I’ve just joined the committee anyway for news of any new special editions that come out. As a new collector, my latest strategy (or stab ...

Ah ha!!

You could well be right Mr T, however I will leave the bottle unopened for my descendents to check.... Digressing a tad...can anyone think of any other food or drink that can be consumed (safely) after 100 years? When you drink very old whisky you actually taste the past...as opposed to reading abou...

"Best Before" of "Use By" date on an Abe

In the tube that holds my Aberlour 10YO bottle, there is a date of Nov 2405. (Yes 2405) I wonder if this the sell by date or best before date.

If so, how do they work it out? :?: :?: :) :)

If its right we shouldn't be too worried about the long term storage of whiskies....

Thanks Wave, I intend to provide a bigger list next week-end and will add these. And you are right The Fachan, 60000 bottles or 134 casks doesn't seem very limited to me either. Hopefully this list will help if we see a whisky that says "Limited Edition" on the bottle or box, but doesn't m...

Limited Editions under £100

I’ve started this topic to try and collect a source of information on currently available limited editions. Hopefully other whisky collectors will find it useful. This is not an easy task as there will be a huge number of single casks and the info will go out of date. I’m sure there will be many oth...

New Packaging and New Bottles

Yes I like the new packaging and bottles too! Although I haven't looked at it closely, the packaging seems stronger. I try and buy all HP limited editions. The first one I bought was a Capella a couple of years ago. Shortly after I bought it for £39.95, two were sold in McTears for £100-150 each (se...

The blurb

:) Sounds like an interesting idea!! The Lunar bottling blurb says "If you are fond of the 18 year old, you will be bowled over by the limited edition Lunar Bottling. It is like Highland Park 18 Years Old only more so; aged for 18.6 years, it is even more voluptuous; matured using a greater pro...

Well there were some familiar and some unfamiliar beers there. (I’ll probably research some of the unfamiliar ones!!) :wink: . And I’m a fan of Hobgoblin but, like Theakston’s Old Peculiar or Orkney Skullsplitter, I think these are beers better enjoyed on their own! It’s made me wonder why the whisk...

A wee half and half

It's traditional in Scotland (or maybe used to be) to drink a whisky with a half pint of dark beer (known as a wee half and half, or a wee hawff and hawff if you have a SW Scotland accent). :wink: (It's probably traditional in most places to do this!!) I like this as I find dark beer is a rather ple...

Yes indeed, Mr TattieHeid, I was speaking figuratively. Elchies is one of Macallan's "seasonal selections", but I haven't been able to spot any reviews on it. As a collector, I'm trying to make use of my "home town advantage" and making a point of buying "available at the di...

Angus's long-suffering wife was fed up with her husband's unfortunate fondness of a not-so-wee dram. Most evenings he would roll home from the pub considerably the worse for wear.

Was at Highland Park distillery recently and purchased a Highland Park 18 year old and a Highland Park Ambassador’s cask 2. Have tasted both and while the 18 year old is very nice, I really liked the Ambassador’s cask 2. It’s Highland Park’s youngest (10year old) and strongest (58.8%) whisky. Highla...
