Interesting video

I've just discovered the Aquavitae youtube channel and am bemused I didn't discover it earlier.

It's pretty focussed towards scotch over other whiskies which is understandable as the organiser is Edinburgh based I believe.

But this video in particular I found very interesting where they have Arthur Motley buyer for Royal Mile Whiskies as a guest talking about how whisky purchasing has changed over the years. Including the current bottle flipping trend.

It's a long video and Arthur appears after 20 mins or so.

Insightful video but, requires patience.

Good to see how the sellers are attempting to curb the flippers and the professional investment buyers. Hopefully, customers can understand the difficult position the retailers are placed in with the mania for special bottles and releases. The LCBO ( For all it's Faults) in Ontario, CA., seems to be trying to be trying to curb the flippers in this year's Diageo Special release. They are selling online with one to two bottle limits. I just wish their knowledge of what investment buyers and flippers are chasing was more extensive.

Quite interesting, and I did devote about a half hour skimming through it, but I really would have to be bored shitless to sit through three hours of whisky prattle.

Haven’t looked at this one yet but have seen a few of his virtual pub offerings. I watched the episode with distiller Ian McMillan last night, as what he achieved with Tobermory, Deanston and Bunnahabhain was nothing short of miraculous in my view. One of my whisky hero’s if that doesn’t sound too over the top. I had a heart attack 10 days ago and was rushed in for emergency stenting so consoling myself at the moment with catching up on video blogs and the like. Good news is a dram can be had, although not had one yet, but knocked the ciggies on the head for ever! Take care all and live each day as best you can. Cheers. Tim.

Cheers Rian, bit of a shocker tbh. Don’t have to drop my whisky collection up to you in Bristol quite just yet, lol, but did think I might get told to knock it on the head. Thanks for the best wishes.

@Timp, great attitude!

Your whisky flavour receptors will improve.... heartburn/acid reflux should decrease, if you had any.

Cheers!! tumbler_glass

@Timp I had a friend go through the same thing a few months ago. He’s doing fine, back to his usual routine of swimming, gym workouts and his 2 dram a day whisky habit.

I wish you a speedy recovery and good health for the future. And stay off the the lung darts mate, that’s the best thing you could do for yourself.

@BlueNote @paddockjudge cheers for the kind words guys, and yes heartburn was a pretty nasty feature of my life ( thought it was gluttony!! Lol ) and not a trace of it since the procedure. Looking forward to a nice dram to bring a bit of normality back. Thanks..

Ps lung darts is a very apt description Bluenote and a thing of the past..
