Hello,


in case anyone remembers/knows (I'll msg all the involved people) and since inaccuracies/issues/etc should be noted & solved transparently imo...

On this:

https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/100257/south-island-25-year-old-nzwc


The approval note says:

"accepted     28-08-2017     mds51     links am Rand ist die große Flasche sichtbar. Bitte mit der 150ml-Version verknüpfen.     https://scontent.ftxl1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v…     28-08-2017     RoyalScotsman"

But the link does not exist anymore.

Now user StoneFace has talked to nzwc, who confirmed that there never was a 700ml version of this... only a 350ml apparently.

So question is - what to do now... I'm only relaying this here as this was approved with a proof of existance of sorts, but I can't find anything about it either and I'm reluctant to remove the 700ml version as there's data on top from WB users....


Churs.

In the process of trying to provide photos for the South Island 25 year old NZWC 350 ml bottle, I came across the entry for a 700 ml bottle. I didn't think it had ever been bottled in 700 ml. A call to Mathew Wicks at NZWC confirmed that the SI 25 YO was never 700 ml (apparently this product was changed to 350 ml after the 23 YO equivalent ceased) - I can only assume he's correct.

@RoyalScotsman: Could you please look into this?

@alectron: I see that there is another user who has added the 70 cl version to his collection. Have you tried to contact him to find out whether this version exists or not?

Because I'm the one who processed the pictures for the 350ml bottle I asked both mds51 and RoyC about the 150ml and 700ml versions.

This was the mds51's response: "The 150ml was as far I remember part of a present basket for fathers day last year. " and Reinhard told me that the sended dropbox messages are expired, so there are no pics or any other info.

@alectron: If you do not get feedback in form of a photo of this 70 cl bottle within 10 days, please contact RoyalScotsman and he will remove it from the database. In this case, the 35 cl version must be set as 'default bottle'.

Well guys, I searched for the Pictures:

150ml:   https://abload.de/img/20708357_172102265460atosz.jpg


But I couldn't find the picture for the 700ml sad 

Maybe i did a mistake here? I can't remember.


Cheers

No reply from DramTimeNL so far to my message. I can ping back here in a few weeks as well...

Or, @ RoyalScotsman - do you want to chase that up and delete the bottle if DramTimeNL doesn't reply within a few weeks delete the 700ml bottle of this as it does not seem to exist ?


Cheers.

He is running a shop and apparently only uses this account for listing shop items and links. I doubt that he has this bottle in his possession. Wait another few days - if you do not get a reply, kindly ask RoyalScotsman to remove this bottle from the database.

DramtimeNL replied:

"Sorry for the late response, I was on holiday. As far as I'm concerned there is no 700ml version. I also have a 500ml."

So the 700ml one should be deleted & the 500ml be the master/parent I guess.

Churs.

We will fix this.
