Postby vintagemaltwhisky1973 » Wed Sep 27, 2006 1:07 pm

Hello,

I am a new member of whisky Forum,i am a keen whisky drinker/collector so i have been changing my small whisky collection round,i am looking to buy two old bottles of Bowmore whisky,the first is a Bicentenary Rectangle bottle 10 year old Matured in Sherry Cask and the second bottle is a Sherriff's 7 year old with it's original box,i would like them in good condition if possible.
If anyone is selling them or knows someone who is selling them i would be very greatfull.
Thanks,

dear mr 1973

I hope you have deep pockets! You will looking to spend at least £2000 for these.

Have you tried loch fyne whiskies in inverary, parkers whisky in banff or royal mile in edinburgh. they should be able to source them for you.

kind regards

Just to maybe help with the prices, I saw a Sherriffs sold in Dec. 2004 for €700 and would expect the current price to be similar if not a little more.

They have both of the Bowmores you're looking for at The Whisky Exchange in London ( http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/atoz.htm ). The Sherriff's is going for £398.99 with VAT though it doesn't say if it's with the original box or not and there is no price on the Bicentenary meaning you must call to inquire current cost which tells me it's definitely not cheap!

Hello,
Thanks for your help,i do understand these bottles will be quite expensive,i have tryed these shops but the only bottle of Sherriff's 7 year old Sukhinder in the whisky exchange has for sale has slightly evapourated.
The Rectangle Bicentenary is not the one in the photo,the one i am looking for was only for the Italian market with "10 year old Matured in Sherry Cask" writen on the label.
I will keep looking and hope someone will have them.
Thanks again for your help :) .
Kind Regards,

You may want to try Giuseppe Begnoni (Whisky Paradise). He probably has what you want but he is expensive.

Hello MacLover,

Thanks for your help,i have tryed Giuseppe Begnoni in Whisky Paradise,he does not have the two bottles i am looking for either.

They seem quite hard to find but i am sure (and hope) some day i will come across them.

I am changing my small whisky collection round so i have a few bottles to sell and some i am looking to buy. I have a full set of MacAllan ESC's and a Pillage Malt 2005 for sale if anyone is interested in buying them,they are all in very good condition.

Thanks again for your help.

Best Regards,
