Bought – Online Whisky Auction, 22nd December 2013
Apparently Alfred Dunhill Ltd got into selling whisky in 1982, so this bottle isn’t any older than that. The bottle design is quite interesting and it’s a replica of a Victorian design from 1845. It’s certainly very distinctive. Malts in the mix are said to be between 8 and 20 years old. When hunting for this blend on Google the first link I found was for a big bottle on ‘Master of Malt’ that they once sold for £250. It’s now flagged as ‘discontinued’. But I also found two big bottles that sold at auction in 2012 at £20 each. That’s more like it for a blend, even if this was considered a luxury version. ‘Hard To Find Whisky’ are trying to sell a bottle for £250 which is madness. My miniature has a price label on it, presumably from the first shop it was bought from, for £4.95, It cost about £2 at auction.
