It has a starting price of £300 which seems a rather lot of money. As a collector of Glen Moray it is of interest to me but I cannot find out anything about it. Any one out there know and what about prices. Any information would be appreciated.
I must admit I am not really much of a collector, but like you I would think this is a rather hefty price tag for what is really a 12 year old Glen Moray.
The thing that would put me off straight away is that the seller has no feed back at all on ebay. This always makes nervous.
There also seems to be a lack of information about the bottle - what's the abv, has it been signed, is it numbered?
The seller has also admitted there is some damage to the tube.
When you think you can pick up a Glen Moray 1962 at 43% abv from the Whisky Exchange for the same amount, this ebay offering does seem very expensive.
Like I said, I'm no expert, but I'd stay well clear
I say drink it all!
If I was in any doubt regarding the authenticity of this particular bottle I would contact Glen Moray directly at:
Personally, I think this is a big fake. If Glen Moray would like to make a special bottling for the opening of Buchanan Galleries I'm sure they would do it properly, i.e. putting on a real Glen Moray label and not use a standard 12y. old whisky for the purpose.
Second, this eBay seller has no track record whatsoever and that is a real cause for alarm these days.
More suspicious is that you can't find a single trace of any similar bottles in any collections when searching the web.
I would definitely keep my hands off this bottling.
This sort of thing goes on all the time (cf the curernt Highland Park one for the rugby club) but most don't end up on ebay at ridiculous prices.

I might be on my own but I enjoy collecting Glen Moray I realise it is not one of the highly collectable distillerys but we are all different and pleasure comes from within.
Do you have a favourite ?
I'm very low on money currently, but the 16yo is on my 'to buy' list. I tried to get the commemorative bottling after reading about it in JM's whisky bible, but could not get it at my price range.

the Glen Moray range used to be in the lower price range with German retailers. Than it vanished completely from the scene.
Now the 8 12 an 16 year old are back - and cost 5-7 € more!
So you better think twice, the Glen Moray hype is yet to come.
Did I mention that I am not too fond of French drinks giants who own whisky distilleries?
