This is probably what still sits on the shelves in the US - haven't checked recently which one but they are kind of dusty. Generally see it at retail for $400-500.

Saw this for $200: http://www.bargainliquors.com/spirits/d ... s_id=31237

Might be a different one though...

??? That is quite a lot. For an IB, in Europe, I don't think it will go higher than $200-250

My mistake, mind is slippling away. However, IB Macallans, Springbank and Ardbeg that are in the 25 to 30 yo range still sell way up there. Generally you are looking at a starting point of $300 (roughly 200 GBP)for any of these distilleries. Yes, more than many IB PEs and Broras of the same age.
