Some years back, Midway, I was flown over to Stockholm to open a bottle of Ardbeg dating from 1897.

It was being filmed for TV, the venue was packed and myself and then Ardbeg distillery manager opened the bottle between us and poured. Though not before I had given the shop manager an 1897 half crown to pay for my measure.

I sniffed the whisky. Looked quizzically at the distillery manager who did likewise and said nothing. I tasted, once, spat, a second time, spat, a third time, spat, a fourth time, spat...

Total silence. The film crew focussed on our every move.

Finally, I looked at the distillery manager, turned to the owner of the 1897 bottle and said..."Sorry. This is not what it purports to be. This is almost certainly the current Ardbeg 10 years old; it certainly doesn't pre-date 1978 and cannot be anywhere near 1897.' The poor man was devastated.

On television!

I'm afraid there is a massive amount of fake Scotch doing the rounds, mate. You would never see me buying one of those old bottles, let alone paying such a ridiculous amount for a nip.

It's certainly a wonder if there's a possibility of buying a £40 bottle today and it being worth £5000 in 30 years time. I'm guessing it would have to be an exceptional year or blend as someone clever might say, limited edition packaging which ends up rare and connected to a special event for a Macallan or similar to fetch that, like they do now for 50 year old bottles. Like anything collectable, have to know your end market and end game, otherwise it's just collecting and that would be a waste of alcohol.

That said Whisky, Ardbeg 10 yo is nevertheless an extremely agreeable dram.
I accidentally bought a bottle of Glenmorangie 10 yo yesterday - not quite sure how but i don't think I've ever bought Glenmorangie before. I had assumed it was a Speyside malt but i now know differently. It is very satisfying, obviously nothing like the Islay malts but there is a little bit of smoke in there.
