I forgot to say what I generally pay for the whiskys on my list.
Prices in Australian dollars remembering that 1 Aussie dollar equals around 92-93 US cents at the moment about 60 pence and 70 euro.
Tali 10 $75
Aberlour 10 $50
Nikka From the Barrel $20
Nikka Pure Malt White $16 but can on occasion be bought cheaper
The Japanese I buy in Japan but I know the ones on my list are readily available from specialist whisky retailers in the UK and Europe these days.
OP12 was in with a shot at $55 but I wanted some sherry in my diet.
As a comparo to what some of you all can bargian buy, here you will pay for the following
Laph QC $100
Laga 16 $100
Caol Ila 12 $100
Laga 12 $120 and I've seen it up to $175
