Most serpently not! We also stayed at Oban x-years ago at the Corran house, in the Cellar was the Markie Dans Pub, over 100 single malts to try & so little time, it was here my tonsils wallowed in the uniqueness of Macallums "As we get it" (cask strength with bits in it! ) I reckon Jockist Jihadis come here when they die. (or at least to get an idea of what paradise should be like, mind you there's probably a paucity in the Virgins department, but hey ho, you can't have it all).

Re: Anyone know about bottles?

Well,the answer to allowing my poison display in the house is a definitive "no" from Mrs E...so it looks like they are staying in the garage

A lady of taste!

A touch of Gordons used to be very popular with the ladies.

With Tonic or Orange, of course!

Re: Anyone know about bottles?

You've got a good selection there 'explorer.
I wonder if they were somebody else's collection and similar to you his spouse wouldn't have them on display.
I'd would try to get advice from another collecter or bottle magazine.

Cheers G,I'm glad someone appreciates them (empty) ,They all came from the same site so you never know.
It's only the bottles that are genuine,where the true value for me lays, the labels are from Google
I was thinking of giving them to the museum at the brewery visitors centre in Bburn when Mrs E or I have had enough of them.
