for daily updates of inventory and store locations. Also available are the new William Larue Weller wheated bourbon, the Sazerac 18 YO straight rye and Eagle Rare 17 bourbon. All are $46.99 per bottle. The 1975 DL Ardbeg is presumably long gone, sad to say. Hope this helps a little. Slainte, Ed V.
we have discussed here the advantages and disadvantages of having whiskies rated and points given to them by "whisky authorities". It seems to me you just found another shortcoming of the system of whisky bibles and whisky companions.
It is irritating, that a high score for a malt that is made public sends prices rocketing as it is your own taste which is the deciding factor. It is a pitty that a good Murray or Jackson score makes it more unlikly that you buy a bottle of a high rated whisky because that rating just drove the price out of your range, i.e. exceeded what you would be willing to pay.
On the other hand, there are always samples you can try to find without paying many times over.
I'm not sure that a good write-up Jim Murray (or any other whisky 'pundit') creates sufficient demand to 'strip the shelves bare'.
Cetainly, if a supermarket wine gets a rave review in a Sunday newspaper it often sells out for a couple of days. But usually, it's back on the shelves at the same price within a week.
