Would it be because it is:
- the "last chance" to buy and taste it,
- one you just "have to" buy,
- a good investment,
- or something else.
This particular Talisker gets rave reviews from almost everyone who tried it. It's gonna be a "want to drink" it type of purchase, which is why I'm considering buying two bottles. That way I can keep one closed for the future.
I have two Laga 21s myself, for which I paid around the â‚¬ 200 mark a couple of months ago. TWE's prices are outrages for some of these almost out of stock bottles, but since this Tali 20 is becoming increasingly hard to find, and this is about the cheapest I've come across in the past 6 months, I figured I might want to get these.

Even with shipping and packing its cheaper to get it there.
I've never been to a whisky auction, as there aren't any really in Holland. I know â‚¬ 299 per bottle is by no means cheap, believe me, I know...
, especially since they originally sold for around GBP 100. But that was 7 years ago...
I'm gonna have another look around, but I doubt I'll find a cheaper option on short notice.

I know of which shop you're talking about. I've also seen this bottle on this site:http://www.oldwhisky.net/botella.php?cod=IS35&cat=
but then you pay 25 Euro shipping costs which would almost be the same. Another shop in the Netherlands has the same bottle at 319 Euro (shipping costs not included). So it seems like a bargain.
The Laga 25 at 280 Euro seems also OK but keep your eye on the following site:http://www.spirituosen-superbillig.com
They used to have the Laga 25 at 249.95 but it's sold out at the moment. When I ordered my Laphroaig 30 I paid 16.50 Euro shippingcosts to Belgium.
I'm familiar with both sites, but spiri-billig isn't likely to get their hands on another Laga 25. Especially not at that price.
