Bought – Best of Whisky, Holland, 26th August 2014
95.5/100 – Whisky Bible 2014
81.74/100 – Whiskybase (average from 147 voters)
This is a 70cl upgrade of a miniature I bought a few months ago. I wasn’t expecting to get a full bottle because, having been discontinued, the cheapest is £100. That’s until I discovered Holland! Although I’m not the first person to discover Holland because there’s definitely people living there, and some of them sell whisky! 🙂 The Macallan was priced at €52.50, which equated to £42 at the time of purchase, £58 cheaper than the best UK price. The second best UK price was £200! Do I have “MUG” written on my forehead?! When getting whisky sent from Holland to the UK you need to find good deals like this to cover the cost of postage. This was a perfect find!
