PC5 Current Value?

Postby duckmcf » Sat Aug 04, 2007 9:42 am

Hi Gang,
Today (4 Aug 07), I stumbled onto a local bottle shop that has 8 or so bottles of Port Charlotte PC5 :shock: for AUS$110 :shock: :shock: (which is around 45quid or US$90).

As a reflex action I grabbed 2 bottles, but I'm wondering what the current price and availablity is on the world market and whether or not I should go back and grab some more?

I would buy the others too if I were you duckmcf. Original sale price in the UK was 50£, and I recently heard of 1 shop selling it for 150£. I think you can buy it a bit cheaper than that, but doubt your price of 45£.

Hi there,

here in Germany it sold for around 70.-€ when it was new and available. It sold out within 14 days and some of these bottles are circled at ebay and other whisky auctions now and have reached the 150.-€ mark easily and are on their way to even higher regions. So whether you drink or collect, go and buy.

Greetings

I paid 90 euros in a shop.
This is the retail price in Italy(oh well maybe that shop was a bit pricey on hi own just because I saw another bottle at 75 but when I decide to buy there was no on left in there so I turned to the 90 euros shop)

In the UK it was released at £55. I don't know anyone who has it now it's all sold. I reckon to buy it all if you can. Especially as it's under it's launch price and it's making a profit on the resale market.

Would anyone know if the PC5 from Alchemist is likely to increase in value too?

Yes, I too wonder about the same. I would assume it would, maybe not as much though as the original, but because there are few Port Charlotte's on the market due to lesser production, and Bruichladdich not selling much stock.

I thought that. It was either a typing error or taking my name in vain.

A good value but remember if you do buy some more drink at least one of them It's a very good whisky and it would be a shame to just sell them on without ever tasting them.

Hi Lawrence,
No worries there. I had the cork out of one of bottles seconds after getting them home. :D I had a quick sample and I have to say that it's one of those rare times (for me anyway) where the description on the flyer that came with the bottle matches what I was tasting. "Islay, without the medicine". Exactly. I found it to be very powerful and quite hot on the palate and very peaty. Terrific! Like an Arbeg Very/Still Young, but not.

Anyway, I'm going to a whisky tasting in a couple of weeks where all the participants have to bring along a single bottle. This big, bad boy should raise a few eyebrows.... :dead:

The more I read these posts, the more I regret opening my PC5 before getting hold of a 2nd bottle. Let me just finish it anyway.

I am soon coming around to believe that the effects of oxidation are more pronounced and show up faster in hot climes
