No, about £56. But the 'fiddich 18 cost me £20.

I have a stash of cheap drinkers to work through.

Those were the days! :D

What do you think of it and what batch is it? I currently have batch 3001 open and I'm loving it. The cork has been out twice and there's only 1/3 left. Had I not been drinking others at the same time ... :dead:

Should have bought cases when it was still available under £30, but who could predict that a year or two later it would be £65? :o

Tbh Willie i bought a couple small collections of cheap drinkers about 18 months ago from two private individuals.

One of them literally from a car boot in a car park. :smoke:


£65 :o . I see a couple places selling at an older price of £50+ change, and a few at £70. It's tricky keeping up these days.

A huge pot of Ethiopian Limu coffee. Cheap as chips and rather nice for the money.

You've been looking after those two for a while. I think the eldest A'Bunadh I still have is batch 11. How was the Brora?

yeah I have a lot of bottles in the archive...

The Brora is thin.. It has the peat note - but there is not much else going on other than the spices related to the peat. It is interesting enough as it is.. but the only Brora I could afford at the time (cannot afford any of them now) :smoke:

You're not alone there. Who can afford Brora these days? :cry:

I still have a couple of bottles tucked away, but no plans to open them soon. I drank one last year and it was yummy. :D
