I googled 'Hogshead-help' and came across this forum.
All i can say is...can anybody help me with my Mum's Hogshead?!!
My Mum purchased a Hogshead as an investment just as Mart's Dad did. She has now handed it over to me to deal with.
I knew nothing about whiskey until I read Mart's forum chat but may I still ask a few questions and describe what it is I have?
Tobermory Single Highland 2nd class BCP
Filling date; 16.04.96
Burn Stewart Distillers, East Kilbride.
What does BCP mean?
Is this good whiskey?
Should I bottle it and try to sell it, continue to pay the rent until it is older, or sell it back to the distillers for the £575 they are offering to give me for it?
I think my Mum paid around £1,000 for it initially so the latter seems a real scam on the distiller's behalf.
Has she been scammed altogether maybe?
Please could someone help. I really know nothing apart from what I have read about Mart's Dad's Hogshead!
Thank you in anticipation of some serious whiskey knowledge!!!
