I asked the owner why it was so inexpensive. He explained that since scotch whisky which has sat so long loses a lot of its strength, they usually end up selling that to blenders - like Johnny Walker. That's where this batch was headed. When it got to the importer in Houston, he tried it - and found that once he put a little water in it, it was fantastic! Yes, they're selling this bottle at "Cask Strength" (which, according to my research puts it at between 50 and 60 percent (100-120 proof).
They also had a 30-year Glenlivit for only $175. Had it been Glenfiddich I don't know that I would have been able to resist. My wife even asked me, "Are you going to buy it? You know it won't be here long."
No, I didn't get it.
And today, I've completed my set of BSG die-cast ships which adorn my office with these last two I found today in Azle:
One is an "Elite" Mark-II, the other, a retro painted Mark-VII. I now have them all. That is...until they release something new.
