Whisky is expensive. It has always been expensive but it feels like today it is too expensive to drink. How many people would be ok opening and drinking bottles that cost £500 or £1000. Buying bottles for a collection is one thing but actually opening them is not something I could stomach very often (ever).
I have been thinking about this for a while now and it got me thinking. There is a lot of hyper marketed bottles now but their is also still some solid bargains. I wonder how much interesting, unusual and quality whisky £100 ($122/€116) can buy. I suspect the answer is surprisingly an awful lot and so to prove it I want to set everyone a challenge.
The challenge is to source a small interesting collection of whisky for only £100 within three simple rules:
- Collection must include FIVE bottles at least
- Any size of bottle is allowed
- Must not spend over the 100 pounds but postage costs are not included
Points will be awarded for creativity and breadth to your collection.
