I went back on the threads over a year and could not see this one so I thought I would start it now, apologies if this is already out there. In truth there will be some cross over to other threads like ridiculous prices but there is a big difference between a good whisky that is far too expensive and a rubbish whisky that is far too expensive?
This is just a personal view designed to generate a discussion, nothing more. My comments are based on experience of the whisky.
In no particular order.
1 - Macallan - trading on past glories, recent stuff has not been that good and far too expensive.
2 - Dalmore - How can a brand charge so much for older bottlings when its core range is so mundane?
3 - Ardbeg - similar to Macallan, far too expensive for the product it dishes out now, over hyped in the extreme.
4 - Glendronach, older bottles are good but not as good as the scores on WB suggest and is a bit of a one trick pony, again prices on the secondary market do not match the quality inside the bottle.
5 - Could have been anyone of a number to be honest, I will have a think about this one, needs some thought.
