Whisky Galore and...quite a lot of Drambuie

Interesting to see that a bottle of whisky, uncontaminated and unopened, from the SS Politician (original for the SS Cabinet Minister in the book and movie Whisky Galore) fetched only £2200 at auction. Can't help but agree with Tam, the student (STUDENT!) who bought it: grossly undervalued and a great investment

Meanwhile, I'm VERY impressed with the service provided by The Whisky Exchange - two days after ordering, my Stockholm gin, four miniatures of old recipe Drambuie, three bottles of Lochranza Founder's Reserve, and a bottle each of Aberlour a'Bunadh and Glenfarclas 105, all arrived safely and beautifully packed. By post, which for service to Shetland, beats any courier.
