I love Glen Elgin! Easily the best unknown distillery in Speyside Age? ABV?
Either way I'd still buy it (or 2) for a paltry 30 quid. :D

:edit:
Is this the one?

Hi,

For members of The Sunday times wine club,

Quote code Q7292116 when ordering and it can be obtained for £30..

They are also offering First Cask Islay Bruichladdich 1989 for £35..

Quote code Q7301306

Anyone tried the Bruichladdich?

And quite correct too, Laithwaites are the suppliers to the Sundaytimes wine club.

Just spoke to the Sundaytimes wine club and the codes are valid.

For members of the club call 0845 217 9122 to order.

Since the Quote code won't work for me as Laithwaites doesn't ship abroad and I've never seen First Cask bottlings on any of my UK on-line shops let us know what you think of the Glen Elgin if you so chose to get one.
