Fake Rare Scotch Whiskies Abound!

    Recommended Posts

    I would think this news about Scotlands most lucrative export, will do nothing to boost the SNP's independence ambitions?

    Big money to be made - many years ago I knew a young couple that used to buy Tesco's cheapest plonk, several cases at a time, and, after soaking the labels off overnight in the bath, would replace them with some copied "up market" French wine label then sell cases to local Restaurants - they were making a killing.

    I am aware of that happening an awful lot.

    I am trying to remember which restaurant we were in last year and I recognised the wines had all come from Lidl. Now I drink some of their wines but not at over blown charges!

    Neither, the chef's name is Michael Caines.

    if it had been the former it would have been Caine's.

    I am at a complete loss to understand what would motivate anybody to pay those sort of prices in the first place for a bottle of whisky (or wine).

    Vince I too share your opinion and can only surmise that it is people who like to show what they have bought, in a nutshell, just another type of willy waver!

    At £4,000 a bottle are they really buying it to be drunk? 

    Some people are buying it like art, to sit in a lockup or in storage whilst the price supposedly climbes and climbes ... until you find out it’s a fake 😂

    A good friend owns a drinks company. He gave a bottle of very nice and not too cheap whisky to a mate for his birthday. 

    This mate made every drop count and the bottle was lasting well, it was the sort of whisky you drank slowly on your own. Perhaps with a cigar and the world seemed a better place for it.

    That was until a fateful bbq was held and another "mate" was pouring large ones out with coke. His face was a picture. How I laughed.
