Wow, $40 -- a steal! The store where I work sold one that had been on the shelf awhile for $60 a couple of months back (we don't have a big Scotch clientele, so we only stock one or two of most single-malt items). It took a couple of months for the distributor to come up with a replacement -- at $75 retail. That one sold, too. Now we're told there is no time frame for another replacement, if ever.
