1, I live in Tasmania (Australia) so I don't neet a return ticket to OZ.
2, When I win the HP 40 year Old bottle I will sell it to anyone that offers 799 pounds - I will include a 1/2 bottle of Tasmanian Single Malt - I will then have enough to buy a return ticket to The UK - Scotland - Ireland
3, Once there I will go stupid and visit as many distillaries as I can
4, On my return to OZ I will buy duty free "Something" that I can enjoy without going "ouch" at every sip.
Gosh - 900 Quid would keep me imensly happy with "something" of a lesser barnd for a very long time
So help me out here is the corect answer 48.3% proof ?

Just don't say you can't afford to drink it as if you win it has cost you nothing

I may collect a few in the future but i have come to the conclusion that if i am not going to drink them then whats the point of having them. I suppose its a question many members have asked themselves over the years, mind the last time i drank a £150 bottle in 4 days i almost cried but when you get the calling its hard to resist
