    Also curious about the Talisker 175th. I spotted some yesterday for $90. I passed because it appeared to be NAS but I know nothing about it.

    $90 seems like a decent price. It was listed at $99.99 on K&L but is now apparently sold out. It is a NAS vatting of a number of different ages of Talisker malt whisky, reportedly a number of which are 20+. Just how much is that old and how much is 10yo or so whisky (or less?) is of course a mystery. Opinions vary but I found some pretty decent reviews.

    I haven't really hit on a Scotch blog that I depend on yet but Serge seemed to like it for what ever that's worth! Scroll down to September 22nd, 2005.

    The Malt Maniacs were a bit more reserved in their assessment.

    Wow, that's around the cost of the 12 year finished bottles. Great find!

    How old is that bottle? Looks to be before the purchase by LVMH.

    Not sure of exact year. Just did a little research and it could be as late as 2005. LVMH acquired Glenmorangie in 2004 but if I'm reading right it didn't change bottles/labels until 2008, hope someone can correct me if I'm wrong. The telling thing on this bottle is that it lists Brown-Forman as its importer, while LVMH discontinued using BF in 2005.

    In other news from info on this page the juice inside might actually be 19years old.
