  1. ango did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Would be really interesting what MC Fans think about this price position of Alba2!? We are talking about a selling price of 420 Euro based on an 0,7 bottle… 19 years is not really unique and that it is an irish destilate is from my point of view a nice to have information. 95% of the taste should come from the cask itself and the special storage in the cellar of MC. Even if we compare price position with Glendronach or Macallan it seems expensive. Personally I think fanbase is not big enough to consume 866 bottles for 300 Euro so I will wait till price is decreasing… For 300 Euro I prefer Very Sherried which you get from time to time for the same price.

    866 bottlex x 300 Euro = 260.000Euro for 1 Cask... After the first ratings it might be possible to be patient and wait if price can be adjusted... Price is always the balance between supply and demand... Maybe demand is to strong and have to be adjusted

    Would be great if current packaging could be changed as bottles gets damaged if they will be sent within the wodden box…

    a question I ask myself:
    why speak of the Irish distillate as a sales force when the late MC ardently advocated the value of the barrel?
    This makes me think that the Roofer spirit is in danger of collapsing!
