The simple subject for the poll is - which of the three do you prefer?

It does and I don't mind the new ones, but still prefer the old ones. Intermediate solution was pretty lame, though, and I'm glad they made some changes. Apparently that design agency in London was out of touch with Orkneys and their cultural heritage. Interesting revelation after seven years of production.

Whereas the new agency in Glasgow is so much more in touch with Orcadian skies.
They did a nice job on the new design. TG they updated it; I really disliked the version it replaced...
I put the bottles next to each other at home before submitting my vote and yes I like the latest design a lot more.

Les, I loved this input! Glug glug can be as important as a fancy label.
Plus, I like the wider neck and the oversized cork.

What they gain in simplicity they sacrifice in character. And simplicity was never a quality I particularly admired in whisky.

Gerry Tosh (HP brand ambassador) said that they changed from the recent style because people said they preferred the old, wide necked bottles. Apparently they liked the feel of the pour - and a bit of a glug. But I think the new bottles would appeal to a different market entirely, and would have been a disappointment to the people who hankered after the traditional bottles.
If only the polls allowed some way of ranking. I voted for the old style, but would have had the recent style second a long way ahead of the current style. The pictures added a lot. Nobody prefers the recent style (yet) but they might have been everyone's second choice.

Nick perhaps the answer is to do the dusting yourself.
I already cook every night and iroon the shirts weekly as well as sending the rest of the ironing out so Mrs C57 doesn't have to do it!
What more do you want Les?
I'll have to get a maid
Nick you need to get the hoovering and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen done as well.
Don't get me wrong, the topic is about packaging so I go into "packaging mode" but honnestly, I wouldn't give a rat's hiney if it was delivered in a screw top bottle and a brown bag, I love HP too much
