A question about 40 year old 40 year old whisky

Postby steviegraham » Thu Jan 10, 2013 5:04 pm

I was purusing flea bay and saw this listing:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... AQ:GB:1123

it states "Bottled by Royal Milne of Edinburgh over 40 years ago"

Is the seller ignorant or just a con man? :headbang:

Sorry, I don't see your point. He doesn’t say that the contents are over 40 years old he just points out that it was bottled over 40 years ago, which it was being a 40yo whisky.

Did the statement get changed? It does not say that it was bottled 40 years ago. just that it is 40 years old.

The current statement is correct. Maybe, it has changed since its original posting.
