Why?

Because they beat the Dandy Dons 4-3 in the 2008 Scottish Cup - justice at last :wink:

How about this. The Rebus is better known whisky both in and out of the whisky world. Therefore, you will have collector's that don't normally by whisky interested in this particular bottling.

I had a further thought but there is no edit button. :x

It is comparable to coin collecting (my other hobby). I collect US dimes. I have one coin where a mere 13,400 were minted and another in which 264,000 were minted. However, because the one series of dimes is far more collected than the other the second one is work roughly 4X as much (and they are in the same rated condition).
