Do we have a clue as to what Macallan is offering as the Royal Wedding bottling?

Word from the distillery is that it is going crazy and will probably sell out today.

If they're doing any mini's of it I'll probably add one to my collection, if not I'll not bother. Anybody know?

The website says its sold out already. This event was always going to be a ka ching moment for collectors/investors/whisky touts. Well done to those collectors/investors that got one. My guess is that if you bury it for a decade, it'll be worth over £1k when you exume it.
