Bruichladdich First Cut- on ebay

Postby r900p » Wed May 30, 2007 9:56 pm

Bruichladdich First Cut on ebay uk, 1 of 950. Guy from Edinburgh is selling it, should these people be allowed to buy them. Plus £85, i would be interested but at that price i'm not sure, and postage is on top, which ism't mentioned.

Is your suggestion that people from Edinburgh shouldn't be allowed to buy whisky? Is their money less good than yours?

Nick, I think Rob was just saying where the guy came from. It could of been London or Birmingham. It identifies the item without naming names.

Greetings from Sunny Port Ellen !
Expect lots more on E-bay , some people were buying loads , one guy in front of me bought 20 Valinches ! Not that i'm saying he was buying them for e-bay ..... he was Italian i believe , not that i'm saying Italians buy to sell on e-bay ......
The PC5.5 is very nice , not as nice as my PC of course , got a couple to drink . Got the Bunnahabhain one as well (haven't tried it yet ) , also got one of them special miniatures from Ardbeg ......

Highlights so far ....
Jim -Sans masterclass , great ( had a try of their 6 yo Laddie WOW! wish i'd bought a cask of 2001 Laddie !)
Johns Warehouse Tour , brilliant as last year , we want more old Bunny at decent prices !
Ardbeg Managers Tour , nice way to meet the new man .

I',m off to the Rhinns now to soak up them lovely Rays , pass the sun tan oil !

Nick,

My apologies, my intention was merely to say where the bottle was from, there is no postage cost with the item and i was hoping shipping would be cheaper to Cumbria rather than Yorkshire.

Spirit of Islay my cask is 2001, you'll have to gte in touch a few years from now, there is going to be some surplus, well it will all be drunk, but a few will be leaving their brothers.

Les - I know, but I was trying to make a point. If whisky is on sale for £x, how or why should a distillery decide whether or not the customer is "allowed" to buy it. Why should a person be "allowed" to buy it for their own consumption but not if they want to sell it on? And what about the collector who wants to buy the bottle but never intends to drink it. If you have the money and can afford the price, you should be allowed to buy.

And as for the chap with his 20 Valinches, fair enough too. I'm sure Bruichladdich is canny enough to just pop the next cask on the rack when the current one is empty. Who knows, they might be able to offload 20 of that to the same chap.

At the end of the day, the distilleries are doing well selling festival bottles at considerably more than they'd get for the same whisky with a regular label. They're getting a good deal. Perhaps with higher prices, they'd get even more; perhaps, though, that would push people over the tipping point and they'd stop buying, leaving the distillery with unsold bottles.

And even if you miss out on, say, the Laphroaig Feis Ile bottle, you can find plenty of good single cask 17yo Laphroaigs from independents for reasonable sums of money.

Sounds good Rob - I would be very interested in buying a couple. Or even swap for Port Charlotte 2003 although that maybe won't be bottled at the same time, but a bit later.

Should have went down to An Tigh Seinnse , it was only £11 a dram there.....
I was surprised how cheap the other drams were in there , the Blacker still was £9 and most of the normal drams were £2-3 each .
Can also recommend the Homemade Portnahaven Crab soup .

The tin may be a spare the seller has, i have a couple spare, used fr coins and pens. I supposw they are more attractive with a tin.

The seller said the tin was for posting purposes. That makes sense to protect precious cargo.

Will be interesting to see what it goes for. Already at £90 I see. Appears expensive to me for a 500ml Bruichladdich!

Have added this auction to my watched items in ebay

It's 20cl and £52 is around about the right price for it. I'm sure I saw one in Cadenheads at a similar price.

I had a 20cl bottle of it - I got it free from RMW when I bought a proper bottle. I drank it.
