I was in a NYC liquor store yesterday and it was on sale for $210. Is this a good deal or is it an average bottling with an expensive price tag?
I cannot speak to it directly, and I did not see that particular bottle in the malt maniacs moniter. Most of the older Spirt of Scotland bottelings seem to be rated fairly highly.
I found this on the binnys website, so the price that you are looking at is VERY good, as binnys is at least usually competative. You can call Brett up at binnys (their scotch guy) and ask him about the bottle, he is pretty much a straight shooter. If you do buy that, I am sure a trading partner or two might have interest .
