Hi o2o, I got a bottle and put it into a tasting - there was general underwhelm-ment - had I kept the bottle I could have made more money selling it.

Why not buy another so that you can do both? Or is it they are no longer available?

Yeah, unfortunately it was quite difficult to get hold of in the UK - I think I tried almost 10 places as it was recommended as a potential investment. Once I got hold of one I couldn't decide what to do.

I am watching a few at online auctions, they are going for almost 75% more than I paid so i may take your advice and simply recoup the costs or add to the collection (forgetting about drinking it).

Then again, with the wrong people visiting over xmas it may not stay in the collection long.
