  • Tony: I heard last year from a Glendronach rep that there were <10 '71/2 casks left - can't remember the exact number (6 or 8 maybe). And that
  • Tony: May have been 130 Euros in Japan, but was marked up to 279 Euros by the time it reached LMDW!
  • Tudval: Just because canadian whisky 'can' have other stuff in it, doesn't mean it does. Regulation is not the be all and end all. Certainly these days there
