Thank you got one..

I'll have one too

Been checking this daily for months for it to come back down in price
Ordered thanks
Now waiting for the Quarter Cask to come down too!

Does anybody know which batch number is currently being dispatched?

I wonder what can be inferred from the batch number? Are some bad?

It's batch 57 and not the 56 as shown.

Some are better than others but general consensus is you need to have a good palate to notice the difference and even a lesser bottle is still a pretty good buy at 39 pound.

Thanks for that.
I have a 57, so I'll refrain for now.

Personally, I just try to pick up different batch numbers to compare them.
There are very minor changes to the alcohol level between batches, which no doubt alter the end experience and no doubt each different cask imparts its own character, but I'm no expert and simply like to explore this gem.
This is quite a potent dram, so isn't for the beginner, but should certainly be sampled by all.

For anyone who missed it, or wants to stock up, this Lightning Deal is coming up again today at 5pm for Prime users, 5:30pm for non-Prime.

Amazon seem to be repeating Lightning Deals quite often. This will be at least the fourth time round in the last month for the A'Bunadh and I've also seen the Highland Park 12 w/ Two Glasses deal come up several times as well.

First time I've seen it on offer since January and I've been checking every day with it being my favourite whisky.
Wonder if it'll be the same price in tomorrows deal?

You might want to change up your checking routine if you're really keen to catch them as I can absolutely guarantee it's been on offer several times in the last few weeks alone. I bought it on 31st March 2017 on a Lightning Deal, then the same deal ran again on 10th April 2017, then again two days ago as evidenced by this thread. It's also running right now as I mentioned, not tomorrow, so get in there quickly! All of these have been at the same price, £39.

Seems you're right.
Checking prices once a day isn't enough if the recent deals only last a few hours.
Busy enjoying a small glass now.
Seems sweeter and not "quite" as strong as the last bottle I had in January at only 60.7%

Back at 39pounds. Just got one.

Still got half a bottle in the cupboard, so might hold off until around Father's Day when Amazon have loads of single malt deals on (I got the A'Bunadh for £34.50 before)
