That only took 2 weeks. I wonder how many didn't read it to the end?

MP6 now sold out - all gone in little under 4 days - much quicker than the MP5 Port Charlotte bottlings...

Awwwww.... Missed that.


Are you sure it is a 2007 though? Not the 2009? If so, I need to add a another bottle to my wishlist.

Not really "news", but as the bottle was not yet in the WB database, perhaps it is new to some:

Currently still available, not sure how long that will last now. :D

Shoplink added for Oc5: 160 pounds for a 50 cl bottle.


Prices of new bottlings are insane, see also the TBWC 6yo...

Master of Malt had some - although it too has gone.  They sometimes get more bottles in - ask using their chat facility.

"Douglas Laing Old Particular: 8 years old but best part of £200."

For UK buyers the average price will be £200 - it seems a lot for an 8 year old malt and is slowly pricing most drinkers out of the market.  I enjoy the whisky, but I suspect not many people will be comfortable with the price.


The cheapest I've seen it advertised is £190 - Green Welly has it for £199 (I think their prices are generally fair).

Thanks for the bottle submission and heads-up!


I agree that GW is generally fair, but these Octomores (a.o. ALOS, TWA, TBWC and now DL) are getting really expensive. I couldn't not buy it, but my passion is becoming constricting...

Sold out within a day - the website crashed that often during the day that users were driven to drink - a cunning ploy to create more demand perhaps?

I spent about 4 or 5 hours in the shop and hoped to get one or two of these bottles, with a nice dram it was getting fun ..... unfortunately still without the X4-experience

Nothing comes up when you do a general search and the distillery website has nothing - sometimes when a bottle is posted it would be useful if the original link could be posted as a reference.  Perhaps it's the next installment which hasn't been released to the general public yet.
