in uk they come in a tube like the others in the balvenie range.
The Portwood 21 used to come in a tube, but about a year ago Balvenie put it in a box and added 30 bucks to the price.
(Oh Thesh, nice collection)
But this is a "Collection" and not a "drinking inventory".
ive uploaded the pictures i do have of part of my collection, its only about 40% of the collection, but there all the pictures i have, i do have a 4mb picture of each bottle in the collection, but at 480 odd bottles, prob to big to upload all of them, so here goes.

OMG. I wish you were my neighbour, but you wouldn't be allowed to emigrate here, as you own a National Treasure. Every blessed bottle is sealed and some that I've only read of in the forums and in the press.
Thank you for sharing your collection with us in photos.

Thesh nice selection of bourbon's thanks for showing them.
V7 I love your collection of springbanks.
MT you have put in a lot of work photographing and cataloging all that. It must be very satisfying. Makes me realise I must sometime get round to doing mine. In your private collection do you ever open and drink any of them. If you don't at what point will you. Because if the inevitable happens some one else will enjoy the fruits of your labours?
I am sure that one day some other connoisseurs (and maybe other collectors) will be very lucky when they get to buy out my collection. But as far as I'm concerned, it's an investment policy.
The website was originally created for my collection of whisky and also my photography, although this has now been moved more to the background.
I am not a website programmer, but someone showed me how to use FrontPage and once I got the hang of it, everything else was pretty easy. Just quite long-winded in time required to photograph each bottle individually.
If I remember correctly, I needed something like 2 full days just to bring the bottles out, photograph them and put them back into my storage again.
But once that initial hurdle is overcome, the maintenance and inclusion of new additions is pretty straightforward.
If you ever want to do something similar yourself and need any pointers or even help, just let me know.
I'm sure we can come to some arrangement.
