He claimed that his bottle
Talisker - Natural Cask Strength - 1978 30 year old Whisky
was bottled over 20 years ago
He made the same claim for his bottle
Port Ellen (silent) - 1st Release - 1979 22 year old Whisky
How can we rid the whisky world of such liars and con men?
the vatting of casks include one from 1961 and the majority of the whisky is twelve years old that is why there is no age statement on the bottle
i can understand some people getting this wrong but as i have told ebay many times it makes you wonder what they are doing
its the old adage buyer beware
you can still get around ebays 20 year old rule until they teel you so it will take a while till every one knows
No reason to lie to prospective buyers.
REPUTABLE sellers wouldn't do this.
No one can argue with that. Many eBay sellers just don't know any better though. We all know that a Talisker 10 bottled 10 years ago isn't a 20 year old, but i see this sort of thing all the time. Often if you check their history there is no whisky sold so many are just ignorant.
Ultimately it's you the buyer that must know what you're doing. Caveat emptor.
