My dad was clearing out the garage and found this bottle of whisky. I've had a good browse on Google but can't seem to find any info on it. I don't think it's anything spectacular but going to have a dram of it tonight regardless. The postcode on the bottle is for William Grant in Bellshill. Anyone recognise it?

Enjoy a wee dram especially in the winter months Ardbeg and Springbank are my favorite though there is always a gem to be found. Working abroad means purchases can be made from duty free. London and Amsterdam are great places to find rare and special editions

Have also been collecting malts as an investment to auction off in 20 odd years hopefully. It’s not a get rich investment but should be a good wee pocket money earner not to be hit by tax. The prized one in the collection is a presentation case with a copper still filled with 1966 Loch Lomond and a a glass bottle of 1966 Loch Lomond whisky. It’s numbered 44 of 44. Have a few I paid 70 pounds for which are now selling for 160 pounds and that’s just in one year. So if your carful and know what to look for money can be made.

A great wee shop is Loch Fyne Whisky Shop who get in many special editions. Great mail service , even better to visit.

Not sen that one before. Grants have not been in Belshill that long maybe 20 odd years so it is a recent whisky.

Enjoy

Hi guys.. I'm not into whisky at all.. But the wife's grandad was a bit of a collector.. He passed away about 4 years ago, and we've had this whisky in the house ever since.. Some pretty rare and old whiskies.. Was going to try and sell them but not really sure where to start... So any ideas where would be a good shout... They range from about £500 to £90... Cheers

first you should get them valued, a lot of the independent whisky shops value and buy. people on this thread like the whisky exchange to buy their drink from, but they also buy old and rare, the link bellow provides more details.

you could put the list of what you have up here and what you are looking for and see if that stimulates some interest.

Don't give the game away that you're a novice.

"Hmmm... a rare Islay bottling indeed, but this one appears to be 52 y.o. and it's been in the cellar/garage for how long you say? Eight years? Oh well, I'm afraid this is a bit out of date and a bit worthless I'm afraid. I'll be generous and give you a tenner for it."

Glenlivet is a great dram. I remember stocking up on it flying home from the Falklands £13 a bottle. You could buy two one mount pleasant and two at ascension island. Only finished the last bottle three months back.

The station in Alloa has been great with whisky recently. Tonight I've had bruichladdich, talisker, Johny walker green label and highland park.

Got given a bottle of Dailuaine 16 year old. Never had it before, but it's lovely. Really complex but not overly smokey. Recommended to those who prefer the richer tastes.

Got a bottle of Hobgoblin to accompany it too. smile.gif

I thought I'd bump this thread for the festive season.

I bought a Christmas present to self of Tomintoul 14yo. Cracked it open tonight and its a lovely dram, one which benefits from a little water though. Neat it does not work, but a small splash of water opens it up leaving a complex slightly sweet dram.

Neat it tastes a bit like a Bushmills (a bottle of which I may have wasted by drinking neat) but with water it opens up to something closer to its near neighbour Glenlivet but with a more complex taste for me. It doesn't look good as its not coloured and it is non chill filtered, but this appeals to me now that I am getting more into whisky drinking.

Anyone tried a nice dram this winter?

Just sharing my whisky experience with fellow imbibers. If you don't like whisky, feel free to not post in this thread.

Do the experts not say you should put in a couple of ice cubes or a drop of water to release all the flavours and appreciate it properly?

I used to drink my malt news but one night the host kept forgetting and putting ice in mine as well as everyone else's, wound up preferring it.

one little cube IMO
