dont know a number, but ive seen shops jammed packed with them, so id say 1`500 is a bit short of the mark

Probably 1500 cases more like..... but you never know. If it is 1500 bottles buy buy buy now quickly as it will quickly sell out.

Is that a case of 6 or 12?

On the french forum whisky-distilleries.info/Forum, someone mentioned 25.000 bottles worldwide. I think this is probably closer to the truth than 1500.

Yes, lots of shops had them, even in their window displays, last week in Scotland. They're really pushing this one it seems. Makking sure that the new 10 not only retains its spot, but gains new fans as well I'm sure.

Did they do a Committee bottling? If so, that might be the 1500.
