Default 32 year old Scottish Whisky

I would have loved to take one of those barrels home with me!

Hi Terry,
1979, seems like so long ago. Wouldn't mind a barrel of that myself.
Think there maybe some spooky goings on there, Theres a ghostly figure on the right hand side waving his hands in the air. Reckon you could send that off to ghost hunters tv show. Would make a great program with the atmosphere of the cobwebs and old Whisky barrels.
Mark

Looks like that Ghost is actually taking a shot of Terry taking a shot of the Whiskey Barrels 1979 Lord the son that is visiting for a month and 1/2 was born in that year... seems they both are aged.... Notice the other ghost inside probably waiting for the tapper to finish up to get a drink as well....Whiskey oh no give me my ol bottle of Amarillo or Disarono " Brandy... warm as it goes down...."

The ghost is me taking the picture.

Isn't a very good picture - they gave us free samples before the tour of the facility!

Probably there's Angels wandering about looking for their share!

Not a problem. I'm learning more and more as I post to this forum which kind of photos draw the best response.

The most popular ones so far seem to be the Jackie Stewart formula one car photo and the whisky photo (lol).

Those casks at the front were the oldest I think (30+ years).

My guess is that cask (30 years old whiskey) would probably go for about $15,000 to $20,000 USD or maybe more.

It would be cask strength (about 47 percent alcohol) rather than the standard 80 proof (40 percent).

I'd probably have trouble getting that cask on the airplane back to Boston. The customs inspectors would have a field day with it!

You know Terry, I often wondered what kind of party goes on in customs after confiscating something like that out of your luggage. Hummm. Maybe I will apply for the job of confiscated goods removal, well at least in an apprentice position as the good jobs are probably already taken.
