    oops, just bought some expensive whiskey....should i tell the wife how much it cost?

    Just bought some single cask Ardberg for 45 pound a bottle.. quite cheap for what it is. Trouble is I bought two just to have double the bargain. Now, Should i tell the wife that I've spent 90 quid on posh booze for myself, or just lie and say that it was 45 quid for the 2?

    My wife wouldn't justify £10 for 2 bottles let alone £90 just lie like I do.

    would she know if you said they were £15 a bottle?

    Were you already tipsy when you bought it:)

    How does expensive whiskey compare to cheap stuff? Fancy sending me a tipple? I would never imagine spending that on whiskey.

    sounds like a winner to me!

    Can't see a problem with just telling her - you've obviously got an excess of money so what's to worry about?

    only 16 years, but it's a single cask and if i can resist drinking it (some hope) will double in price in less than 3 years.

    Unfortunatley it's like having the creamiest, most moorish bar of dairy milk in the house and not eating , or even having " just a little taste" for THREE YEARS.....not likely when i put it like that? Most whisky investors are teetotal (for a reason)

    send it to me I'll look after it for you...lol

    That's cheap.

    I once bought some wisky that was £230. (serious)

    i can well beliive it ( not wishing to cast distertions about your previous reputation). The most expensive whisky i have tasted was a Port Ellen ( a distillery closed for over thirty years) which cost over 1200 pounds a bottle.

    Down a bottle quickly and then tell her. If she punches you, you won't feel a thing.

    P.S only had a measure .NOT the bottle.

    I would tell her as she will find out and when she does the £90 spend won't be the issue she will be furious about the lie.

    Hi Castortroy - Some really interesting reading about Whiskey.

    I'd tell her, I keep buying xBox 360 games (not quite the same price) and go to football a lot (season ticket), I always think the Mrs will be annoyed with me but for some mad reason she's normally pleased I got myself something which makes me happy. Obviously it helps that I say go get yourself something too...
