Selling some more bottles

Since I’ve decided to start tuning down my collection a while ago I took some steps to accomplish that. It started with making a whisky shelf in a cupboard in our living room where I could put some bottles I want to finish. After that I hosted a ‘bottoms up‘ tasting and I sold and traded some bottles. Now, I’m trying to sell a few more.

I’m doing this not because it is shitty whisky, but simply because my taste has changed over the years and my interests in whisky has as well. Before I tried to buy more of every bottle I liked or tried to complete series, but I now see the folly of that.

I also bought some bottles through other people that are pretty collectible and rare, and when I had the chance to taste them somewhere (not from my own bottle, mind you) I found I didn’t like them. So here’s the list:

  • Kilkerran bottled on the Springbank Open Day 2009, 48.5%Kilkerran ‘Springbank Open Day’ 2009, 48.5%, € 90
  • Ardmore 12, Douglas of Drumlanrig, 46%, Bottled for Whisky Live Leiden 2008, € 50
  • Four Roses Small Batch 2010, € 20
  • Bladnoch 6 Bourbon Matured, Distillery Only, 20cl, 57.3%, € 25
  • Caol Ila 1993, 14yo, Blackadder Raw Cask, 55.7%, € 75
  • Springbank Marsala Wood, 9yo, 58%, € 60
  • Longrow CV, 20cl, 46%, € 15
  • Talisker 12, Friends of the Classic Malt, 45.8%, € 60
  • Clynelish 12, Friends of the Classic Malt, 46%, € 40
  • Kilchoman 3, Spring 2010, 46%, € 60

If you’re interested, please let me know! I’m sure we can work something out!

  1. Hoi Sjoerd,
    Ik ben evt geinteresseerd in de Ardmore en de Kilchoman. Wrs zijn het meer colectibles dan dat ze erg lekker zijn? Hoe is deze Ardmore vergelijkbaar met de 18yr van Erik …….(Kintra-whisky) en is de 3yr K. lekker of is bv K. Machir Bay al lekkerder?
    Verder weet ik niet waar je woont, voor evt ophalen of dat de PTT handiger is.

    Ik ben meer liefhebber dan verzamelaar!

    PS We hebben heel soms Twitter-contact, bv een twitter-proeverij met Kintra-spul via DH17
