Dog phoned Serge to tell him that it would be hoovered up.

I think I might need to make a hoovering smiley.

Sorry...I don't know everyone in the World of Whisky. I presume Serge is from RMW?

No, see Malt Maniacs to see who Serge is.

Well it's certainly worth noting that Serge is nobody's fool. He's not about to be takn in by one person's view I would imagine. More likely to make his own mind up what will be cleected and collectable?


That was a wee joke.

The point is that this bottling was being hyped by more than just dog, and well before it came out.

After reading the bit from the RMW website. Do you think we've uncovered the identity of The Dog?

Like Superman is Clark Kent. Could The Dogranonthepitch be none other than Serge Valentin. Does he eat Cryprtonite for breakfast is the next big question?

Good point about Serge! So are all critics to be crucified? Many people have said Jim Murray alone is responsible for driving the prices of Ardbeg through the roof! Who says they're not profiteering from this? I am sure Serge needs to find away to pay for his site!

Even if they're not, by posting a favorable review they can easily create hysteria surrounding a whisky. I am sure these critics are more influential than a single poster here on this forum!

Dog posted a tip on a thread read by approx 1100 people and did all this damage - amazing! If Dog really can influence and manipulate so many people then his talents are wasted trying to make money on whisky!

Or perhaps maybe the whisky really is that good and it really does need buying up immediately!

Well...I have only tasted one Longrow (Tokaji 10yr 55.6), and I am re-tasting it now. I will not try to buy the 18 yo bottle, but not for any other reason than it is not in my area of interest.

I do, however, feel that the people that only pick up bottles for the purpose of reselling at an escalated price are scum. I have not researched enough to know who, on this site, is scum, but I will keep my findings of good bottles to the folks I know will actually enjoy them.

I have not met anyone on this site I don't like, but I'm sure I will offend someone with this post...for whatever reason...haha.

C57 - here is Serge's review of the L18:

http://www.whiskyfun.com/archivemarch08-1.html#090308

As others have said, this review was a good few weeks before the Dog posted here to encourage any 'hoovering'.

Personally I have not got my hoover out for this L18, but I got the Dyson out straight away for the Ardbeg Curlywurly :iwbrnt:

All this talk of Hoover and Dyson is surely borderline trademark infringement. Can we just say Vacuuming instead?

I didn't get one of the L18s either. Maybe I need to vacuum more in the future.

You are of course quite correct right FB - I apologise profusely. How could I have forgetten trademark laws after being thrown out by the Dyson Online Forum for daring to mention the words Ardbeg and Macallan :P

There's a dyson online forum? :shock:

Do you think they talk about vacuuming up multiples of the new limited edition, individually numbered, mauve-coloured DC04?

I have hoovered one, but if it is any good I may hoover up another one. Assuming they haven't already all been hoovered up of course.

Bad form Willie :wink:

Surely buying more than one to drink on a limited edition is just as bad as buying for profit!

That means there will be one less bottle for someone else to try and will also help the speculators by increasing the rarity of the Longrow!

Buying whisky for what ever reason seems like a risky propostion as you seem to offend all kinds of people whether your buying to drink, collect or profit!

I don't know what's worse or more insidious, a whisky shill at a whisky forum or, way under the radar at a whisky forum, Hoover and Dyson shills. Shame on the lot of you!

Aye, exactly. Hoover and Dyson indeed! Far too upmarket; whatever did humble Henry do wrong?

I notice that amongst all the Mud Slinging and Urine extraction (not by hoover....) that no one seems to think that £90 (give or take a few pence here or there) seems a bit excessive* for an 18yo ? After all £45 was a bit O.T.T. for a 16yo on other threads...... Pass me the Glenmo 18yo , a bargain at £72 !

BTW Chris you're still a good lad in my books ( as you know i don't agree with what you do on e-bay etc but i don't let that get in the way of our friendship) , anyone who's a mate of Howards is a mate of mine ! LOL!

It sounds like it will be available in the US about June, from what the importer and a few shops have responded.

[quote="Collector57"]Sounds excessive to me too Gordon - hence I didn't bother either...[/quote]

Yeah, but what about the cost of Springbank 21? $450 here at Parkave, I think.

I can understand you UK members feel it's a little excessive for an 18yo but here in Norway we pay for example over GBP 70,- for a bottle of Uigeadail or the Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist. So if the Longrow 18 is very limited and highly praised I'd still be interested.....I reckon?
