To be quite honest Nick I'm not 100% sure I was looking up some of my details that I had and based it on that.
I had a number of 280 -350 in my notes but any the bottles I've had had a bottle run of 140 - 180 so I did a quick calculation and reckoned it must of been evapouration precentage .... but if what your saying is true I suppose what that maybe is split casks between 2 buyers or the Angles (non) share
... it's been a while since I researched these bottles. I'll do another bit of checking at the end of the day or Aidan may be able to reaffirm.
At the end of the day I would not be suspicious about these bottles anyway.
Thanks for the intervention .... don't need to be spreading the wrong story around ...
