I have been interested in whisky since 2012 and have noticed that over the last few years especially prices have gone totally nuts. A case in point is Aberlour A'bunadh which for those who don't know is a cask strength heavily sherried no-age statement Speyside whisky. Waitrose used to stock it and I think it was about £40 or at worst £45 and I think I have picked it up for about £36 when there are offers on. Anyway £40 or even £45 is a very fair price for this. Lately I noticed that Waitrose were no longer stocking it and I thought is this a sign that Waitrose are losing their edge? Answer is no. It is now an absolute rip-off at £79,95 if bought online at leading merchants. Apparently the price hiked before the summer.
