    I tasted this whisky 5 years ago in a very special tasting, and up to now it is the best whisky, I have ever had in my glas.

    Edward Ritz,

    I bought this when it was issued to advocates at £36.00 a bottle. Unfortunately I had hard times several years ago and sold it. I was lucky enough to be given a miniature on a visit to Craigellachie and was able to enjoy what was, and still is, the most wonderful whisky I have been introduced to.

    Rick Sherwood,

    Bough three bottles of this in Bicester when it was first issued, drunk two of them, very enjoyable I must say. A couple of years ago I was about to crack open the last one, on New Year's Eve when my son stopped me from doing so, as he had recently read an article as to the value of it. Needless to say we had Lagavulin instead.

    Mike Carr (Norfolk,

    I was an advocate of The Macallan when I bought a bottle of Private Eye and the miniature in 1996. Have tasted it in a bar/hotel on the Speyside early noughties, very nice! Luckily I still have my bottles' both not opened and in the original packing. Now at this price I never will! They are for sale now at a sensible offer.
