An "semi-official" 1974 bottling has just been released on the Danish market.
Its a single cask bottling, bottled by Glenmo for the danish retailer & importer; Juuls Vinhandel in their new "flying" series.
I guees this could be instead of an official bottling....
Info here: http://www.juuls-vinhandel.dk/get/19569.html
(Tasting notes in english - priced at DKK 2850 ~ GB 260)
Thank you for the info.
Just a question. Last year I was in Copenhagen and stopped at Juuls, where is was stunned by the price of the Ardbeg 1972 (£650). Do you have any other cheaper whisky retailer in Denmark or?
Yeah, I'm kinda stunned too. (But glad I purchased my bottle before the price hikes
The story is this: The ' 72 Ardbeg was released as part of an aniversary series. It's priced at appr. £680, because they only have a couple of bottles left and do not really want to part with them. (Or at least that's what I hear.) It was originally released at £168, then rose to £259, then to £440 and lastly to the level it is today.
You should still be able to find it at £259, at least I have seen it at that price not too long ago. PM me if you are interested and I can see if I can find out.
As for general Price levels, Whiskyhouse (http://www.whiskyhouse.dk
) is often cheaper in the premium price levels and Juuls is cheapest on younger OBs (Presumably because they are the official importer for many of these.)
But generally Whisky is just not cheap in Denmark, you will usually save quite a lot in the UK or in Germany.
If you get to Copenhagen again, please drop me a line and perhaps we could meet or somthing
