    Thanks for the thought Tim, but I'll settle for the cash equivalent....

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    Crispy, I meant $12.00 U.S. This is based on Kentucky prices (say, $12-$15). Even at $20 it is well worth the purchase but e.g. I doubt it is above $15 at Liquor Barn in Louisville.

    Here in Sweden, this is standard pricing for bottlings like that. We´re used to being skinned!

    I bought my Ardbeg -77 in England but had it ever been available in Sweden, it might even have been more expensive, possibly in the $110-120 league.

    I'm impressed that you guys can get Ardbeg '77s for around $120. Where? I haven't seen any 70s Ardbeg's for less than $200-250, whether here in the US or abroad in Scotland/England.

    I'm fairly certain the most expensive scotch sold to date is the The Dalmore 62 year old that went for £25,877 ($44,000) in 2002.

    encased in 4.4 lbs of gold and platinum???

    That's like putting a glass of bourbon inside a Lamborghini and then selling it for 500k and saying it's the most expensive liquor ever sold.

    this is a total marketing hype for a new line. I guess it was a good idea as it's getting lots of press for the company.

    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!
