Expect lots more on E-bay , some people were buying loads , one guy in front of me bought 20 Valinches ! Not that i'm saying he was buying them for e-bay ..... he was Italian i believe , not that i'm saying Italians buy to sell on e-bay ......
The PC5.5 is very nice , not as nice as my PC of course , got a couple to drink . Got the Bunnahabhain one as well (haven't tried it yet ) , also got one of them special miniatures from Ardbeg ......
Highlights so far ....
Jim -Sans masterclass , great ( had a try of their 6 yo Laddie WOW! wish i'd bought a cask of 2001 Laddie !)
Johns Warehouse Tour , brilliant as last year , we want more old Bunny at decent prices !
Ardbeg Managers Tour , nice way to meet the new man .
I',m off to the Rhinns now to soak up them lovely Rays , pass the sun tan oil !
My apologies, my intention was merely to say where the bottle was from, there is no postage cost with the item and i was hoping shipping would be cheaper to Cumbria rather than Yorkshire.
Spirit of Islay my cask is 2001, you'll have to gte in touch a few years from now, there is going to be some surplus, well it will all be drunk, but a few will be leaving their brothers.

Nick, I think Rob was just saying where the guy came from. It could of been London or Birmingham. It identifies the item without naming names.
Les - I know, but I was trying to make a point. If whisky is on sale for £x, how or why should a distillery decide whether or not the customer is "allowed" to buy it. Why should a person be "allowed" to buy it for their own consumption but not if they want to sell it on? And what about the collector who wants to buy the bottle but never intends to drink it. If you have the money and can afford the price, you should be allowed to buy.
And as for the chap with his 20 Valinches, fair enough too. I'm sure Bruichladdich is canny enough to just pop the next cask on the rack when the current one is empty. Who knows, they might be able to offload 20 of that to the same chap.
At the end of the day, the distilleries are doing well selling festival bottles at considerably more than they'd get for the same whisky with a regular label. They're getting a good deal. Perhaps with higher prices, they'd get even more; perhaps, though, that would push people over the tipping point and they'd stop buying, leaving the distillery with unsold bottles.
And even if you miss out on, say, the Laphroaig Feis Ile bottle, you can find plenty of good single cask 17yo Laphroaigs from independents for reasonable sums of money.

Sounds good Rob - I would be very interested in buying a couple. Or even swap for Port Charlotte 2003 although that maybe won't be bottled at the same time, but a bit later.
I was actually behind him in the filling queue
At least they've sold 12 of the Bowmores then.....
Everyones favourite Retailer was telling me today everyone he seen pick up a bottle put it straight back when they saw the price !
Tried the Bunny bottling yesterday , absolutely fantastic !
Hope you enjoyed the festival as much as we did , Already reserved our cottage for next year !
the port charlotte hotel were charging 16.50 a dram for the festival bunna, got one but didnt open it.
i didnt manage to get over to jura, but ive got the 8yo on the way, didnt fancy the 19yo they were doing at 100quid a bottle, i got one of everything else except the ardbeg, was waiting at the doors of laga on the shop opening to get one of those

Should have went down to An Tigh Seinnse , it was only £11 a dram there.....
I was surprised how cheap the other drams were in there , the Blacker still was £9 and most of the normal drams were £2-3 each .
Can also recommend the Homemade Portnahaven Crab soup .
Any one any idea to it's original pricing?
