  • Jorn: I agree, the first expressions tend to go up in value the most, - ofcourse -, but do you really think the Bowmore DC 2 will sink below 150,00 euro? N
  • WhiskyNotes: I tend to disagree. I would just wait for n°III and make sure you inform your favourite retailer that you want one beforehand. Buying a hyped product
  • Jorn: It's worth 150 allright, but mainly from a collector's point of view. That's where the market is. Like precious little stamps (Nothing wrong with that
