Wowee wow...these opportunities are few and far between these days, but every now and again you get lucky. As many of you know, the BenRiach Group sold to Brown-Forman recently and, if you're not intimately familiar with the liquor business, Brown-Forman is distributed by a different company than Anchor, who was the previous importer. What happens every now and again is that the new distributor refuses to buy the old inventory from the previous supplier, which sometimes (but not always) results in a fire sale. Since I happened to be in the right place at the right time, I made a offer for the entire lot - and they took the deal!
Guess what that means: HUGE discounts on AWESOME single malts. Find me ANYTHING as good as heavily-sherried 19 year old peated Benriach at full proof for this absolutely stupid price. Our last barrel of a similar specimen from Benriach sold for $149.99 so this is basically half price. Then throw in the absolutely delicous 15 year old PX finished distillery bottle for $49.99. The average price for that baby clocks in between $75 - $85, so take another huge discount on that while you're at it.
One thing you should NOT do is snooze on this deal. I would buy as much as you can afford. I just retasted all three bottles and they are utterly fantastic. Rich, heady, packed with flavor, and nothing short of a HOT deal. Imagine combining something like Lagavulin and GlenDronach together! I'm still pinching myself!
