Damn thats hot.

Typo in title? yers? instead of years?

That has to be the Distillery Edition surely, rather than the standard 15 year old? .... Total Bargain!!

15 year old is a bit old for me.

Ahh a local deal for once! (For me) 10 minute drive

If you are clever enough, to then have a job that pays the funds to buy a Porsche...unless it's a dream of yours.
Then while it doesn't state instore, by stating it is from Seaham. It seems obvious to be an Instore deal.

If you'd posted more deals, you'd know the site always adds some kind or link regardless of INSTORE or online deals.

Many years ago on holiday in Scotland I 'did' the Glenfiddich distilery tour. The guide confided that they have found that their whisky does not 'improve' at all after 12 years max (which is the stuff they sell normally). In other words it is not worth paying a premium for anything older than the stuff they normally sell. However it is nice to buy as a gift for somebody I guess.

Well spotted Sherlock Holmes, you're doing god work here!

Good deal, my calculations buy 4 bottles for £100 put in loft for 35 years then sell for £66,000, nice deposit for house for grandchildren

50% proof?

nice!

alison - i'm not a connoisseur but people who are say it's best to add a little water to malt whisky which brings out the complex flavours.

How do your calculations get to £66,000 ?

Whiskey does not age like wine, once Whiskey is removed from the barrel that is the age it stays at.

Don't forget the longer you leave Whiskey the more the angels take their share (meaning it evaporates as time goes by)

Bluffer

15 year old is a bit old for me.



Aaahhh, you're bluffing ...

In 30 years time this will still be a 15 year old bottle of whisky. See swampyajc's post:

. On previous deal a bottle of 50 year old glenfiddich is on offer for £16,500 so this is 15 year old, so I said put in loft for 35 years 15+35 years = 50 years, this is £25 a bottle times 4 = £100, put in loft and wallaaaa £16,500 each times 4 = £66,000

But whisky only ages in the cask. Once it is removed from the cask and bottled, the age it is at that point is the age it remains forever.

You are on the right lines, the age is how long it was in the wooden cask, not the glass bottle, but a few things to note, this is whisky, not whiskey, which would be Irish, and the 'angels take their share' refers to the maturation in wooden casks, which can breath, there can be no evaporation in a sealed glass bottle.

Looks like they've all gone now... was in Tuesday and saw the empty space with the sticker on the shelf marked for it but just been and no mention of it in the normal aisle now

I popped in after work today - there was one left. Did a price check and still £50.
