Happy to sell mine after I've drunk it and reprocessed it . . . . Some folk will buy anything! have bought and drunk hundreds, maybe even over a thousand bottles of assorted nectar over my rather longer than expected life, much to the chagrin of my liver, but have never sold ANY. But some prices are getting very very silly - Ardbeg at £2,100 . . . . and my liver would be delighted to see less inventory to look forward to.

It's not mentioned on TWE site, but they have a Provenance for 600 GBP!
:shock:
(Blimmin 'eck, I'd even sell my own private one for that!)

I just saw the OOgling last night on their site, says "Contact Us!" I'll let you all know if I hear back.

guys I had an offer to trade Talisker 30 yo and the laphroaig 18 yo vintage (only 360 bottles) for an Oogling .
there were 1400 bottles of the oogling looking at it like this the laphroaig on its own will be more worth.
I think the oogling is way overrated!
As you know I am not particularly fond of Ardbeg but my husband is and I wanted this oogling for him I told him about the offer and he phoned Charlie and they talked about this and he said that it wasn`t worth it as he knows that my husband would drink it ,he actually said that the talisker was a "better" whisky in his opinion.
So we didn`t trade it.

I'm still looking a mine. I can't believe the price they are starting to go for.

Ann-Helen,
do you mean someone wanted to give you an Oogling for a Talisker 30 and the Laphroaig, or were you offered the Talisker and Laphroaig for 'your' Oogling?
Personally, I think the Talisker and Laphroaig are the better deal here for the drinker.
Even though I am also content with my 3 Ooglings on a shelf, I can't believe the crazy prices already being asked for them.

Do I remember the original price being around 30 GBP.
I know I bought two at original prices and one on the open market afterwards and I have noted my original buying price as €200 (135 GBP) for all three.
If people are currently asking lets say 200 GBP (not even the 250 GBP) per bottle, that's € 300 per bottle or € 900 for my three.
So, € 200 to € 900 is a 4.5x increase in value, or in other words a 350% increase in the first year of ownership!
:shock:

Then I believe as drinkers, you were correct not to accept the offer.

Yup, smart move! 2 great whiskies in exhange for one great one, that has now become overpriced, or not to some maybe. But anyway, for drinking yes. And those other 2 are tip top I'm sure!!!
