Down at the Whiskyfestival in Zurich, Claudio Bernasconi (a.k.a. the owner of the world's greatest whisky collections and Guinness Book record holder) has agreed to part with one of his Black Bowmores and open it for sampling purposes.
A shot costs 100 Swiss Francs (about 40 quid).
A sample of the new Dalwhinnie 36years old costs 12 Francs, which is very good value, the bottle costs about 800 Francs.
SFR. 100.-- for a shot (2,5 cl?) is not too bad I think. My "Blacky" cost SFR. 1'800.-- almost 5 years ago. This summer was an aution at The Whisky Store in Germany and there went a Black Bowmore for about EUR 2'800.--.
On Saturday I shall attend Jim McEwan's Bruichladdich tasting(Whisky Ship). Last year I was so fascinated by this guy that I thought I would repeat this special experience!
