Octomore 2/140

My local shop has Octomore 2/140 for only 95 euros is it worth adding it to my collection?

I've tried several of the Octomores. If you are looking at a purchase for later consumption, I would say it isn't worth getting. If you are looking to add it as part of a collection (especially if you collect Bruichladdich) then I would say it is worth getting.

For the same price I could get Bruichladdich Black Art or 20 years

Let me split your question

1) Is it (95 euros) a market price?
- Yes

2) Will the price go up twice in next year?
- Not sure, 'cause bottled 15000 and very few people collect Octomore line

3) Does it make sense to buy Octomore 2/140?
- This is up to you

Octomore 2/140 is now worth around 160 euro

95 is a good deal

So it would be worth getting a bottle as an investment then. They are a little behind on prices here!
