I need to restock my whisky cupboard. Currently got half a litre of JD, 2/3 bottle of Aberlour Abunadh, 1/3 bottle of Nikka from the barrel, and half a bottle of Stagg Jnr.

I don't think I've had 60 bottles of whisky in my life. I've currently got a small amount of Bulleit, some Laphroaig Quarter Cask and about 1/3 a bottle of Remy Martin 1738 - not whisky I know, but it's f***ing beautiful.

Nah, not yet. I'm wanting some but it's sold out everyone I've looked online. Whisky Hammer have an auction next week so will see if I can pick up some from there, don't wanna pay over the odds too much for it though. Love Uigeadail tho, that stuff is the dogs bollocks!

It's not as good as Uig obviously, but it may be the best bang for buck you can get it scotch at the moment if you can get it at retail.

Nothing fancy but got a bottle of Western Gold Bourbon from LiDL for £16, not bad at all.

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.

Just checked and a bottle sold for £1,075 at the last auction so I’ll see if I can list mine in time for the next one...I paid £125 so that’d be a nice tidy profit.
