I was talking a few days ago at Facebook about how stupid whisky prices are nowadays and I was particularly talking about Octomore. When I saw the Octomore 10 years old Limited Release for sale I were going to buy it but as soon as I saw it for £150 I decided to put it on a hold.
Paying £150 for a 10 years old is excessive by any means and well… all the point of this blog is to buy good whisky for better prices. So buying the Octomore ( I still think the same ) was a bad deal. Fortunately ( or unfortunately ) the whisky sold out in a few hours and now a few months later it is for same for twice its price: £300. Crazy.
What I was talking about?! A yes… I tasted the new Octomore 06.1 at The Whisky Show 2013. And I also discovered there that Octomore 06.2 and Octomore 06.3 are going to be duty-free exclusives.

Is this whisky good enough to pay £100? I don’t really think so, but it is a quite nice whisky. If you really don’t mind the price tag, go ahead. You won’t be disappointed.
