I have a cunning plan! I know what I want, I just have to find it and drink it.

No plans, I’ll just buy and drink on the spur of the moment.

I don't know if this will be helpful, but I asked a similar question regarding Hazelburn awhile ago in the question thread titled: 1st Editions VS 2nd Editions? It can be found on the second page, mid way.
Cheers,
Wendy


Thanks Wendy! Good info there, Malt-Teaser, (thank you again by the way!!) as vitara7 says, "nope, i dont think it will be worth collecting. i mean, there going to be doing an output of 6000 bottles a year of the stuff and from what i was told, its all going to look like the second release.
the first edition was diffrent, the fact that it was the first edition and the fuss over them doing three diffrent labels emtnyou has to get the set, only adding to the collectablity of the stuff.
i do think the price of the second edition will go up on the likes of the whiskyexchange and that is if the packaging chages in anyway, and as it wouldnt be able to be replaced, as they sold out he'd shove up the price, supply and demand and all that crap."
A few posts later in the thread Ibacha says, "I talked to the people at springbank earlier this year and their comment to me was to wait for the 2nd edition if I just wanted to drink it because it is the same as the 1st just one label."
So maybe since it's the same whisky, assuming it's good like the 1st ed, it will be collectable to then? Some of their other special bottlings, single casks seem to fetching quite high prices. And being from the Springbank family perhaps Hazelburn is worth the risk??

Hi again DB,
If this will be released with the same presentation each year, with no annual identification, then I would not expect it to have any great collectibility (value-wise). It would only really increase in value (maybe) when the presentation is changed, but again that depends upon how many have been issued by that time.

I want to use a Hazelburn in one of my tastings, so I now hold out some hope of doing this not too expensively.

As I have started seriously with whisky for two years, there's a lot to discover for me. At the same time, Ardbeg 10, Lagavulin 16, Laphroaig 15 & QC will always be around in the house :)

Lexvo:
The Knockando $40-140.00 depending on what is available
Rare Malts $738-838.00
Spec. Release $1340.00
Total $2,318.00 Can
Since I acquired all four of the RM bottlings for 2004, the 2005 series is tentatively the most attainable this year. I've never seen or owned more than one Special Release so any of them would be a treasure to be sure.
