In the end I have bought the following bottles to keep for his 21st birthday, that we can either drink, he can sell on, or a bit of both.
Springbank 21 year old
Hazelburn x 3 (still, floor, cask)
Glendronach 15 year old sherry x 2
Lord of the Isles
Macallan 12 year old sheery woodlands reserve (one with tree)
When he was born some members suggested trying the Ardbegs as a celebration drink but to be honest it was not my thing, however I bought the Balvenie 17 year old new wood, it was fantastic, very smooth and easy to drink, as a reslult I have also bought the port wood 21 year old, to keep for the world cup final to watch and share with some friends.
Also, are other forum members familiar with the fantastic sale odd-bins are having, yesterday I bought a Balvenie 30 year old, Brora 30 year old and a Glenfarclas 30 year old, it cost £410. I belive that it is a saving of nearly £160ish. Speaking to the manager he said that the are getting rid of all of their more expensive whisky to make way for new stock? If you phone the Aberdeen shops, they still have on their shelves Glenfarclas 25 year old (£50) Glenfarclas 30 (£65) Balvenie 30(£185) and many more bargins, though I would share this info with forum members who want a bargain.
Well thanks again for all the kind words
If you would like to make a note of this, I will stick my neck out here and say that your son should see the value reach at least 3500-4500 GBP by the time he is 21. Maybe, (I do say "Maybe") he could see a zero added to your original combined price plus a bit extra too. But I would expect the key to this increase to be the Hazelburn and the Ardbeg.
