Another 8 bottles to the collection <gent>
Do share...

I’ve never used whisky hammer but submitted a valuation request for the bottle of 2016 William Larue Weller antique collection that I’ve been holding onto for a few years.

It's a good site imo... loads of stuff on there, ya do have to pay a membership fee which is like £3.50 and 10% commission on any bottle you buy tho.

My latest haul included:

-An old bottling of a Glenlivet 18
-Glenmorangie Signet
-Ardbeg Drum
-Tomintoul 21
-Glenfiddich 21 Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish
-Glenmorangie A Midwinter's Night Dram
-Compass Box Delilah's
-An old bottling of VAT 69

4 to drink, 4 to keep

I like the sound of The Glenfiddich 21 Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish, and heard good things about Glenmorangie Signet.

I have a bottle of the Glenfiddich 21, its great. Only down side for me is its 40 abv. I feel like they could have knocked it up to 45 or 50 to give it a bit more flavor. Otherwise, very good

Signet is delicious.

That’s not a collection you’ve got there, it’s a bar <awe>

Signet is class. Spicy and sweet, but nicely balanced.

I'm watching a few and bidding on one at the moment, I guess a lot of people fire in their bids on Sunday.

Fancy a Blanton's Gold bourbon, had a bottle a few years back and it was tasty.

Best ones were a Glenlivet 25, Glendronach 18 Tawny Port Finish & a Glenmorangie Bacalta. Got the 25 and Bacalta for below market prices <ok> don't ask how <laugh>
