Festival Bottlings 1: Lagavulin and Caol Ila

So Diageo have annouced their festival bottlings, both priced at £75. Looks like they have gone up a fair amount in price?

Lagavulin there is a single European oak cask (528 bottles) filled in August 1994, bottled at 52.7% ABV. The cask was picked by Iain McArthur from the famous Port Ellen warehouse. The cost is £74.99 and bottles will go on sale at Lagavulin on Saturday 22 May – Laga’s open day.

From Caol Ila there is an ex-sherry European oak cask filled in August 1999, bottled at 61.9% ABV, consisting of 558 bottles. The cask was chosen by Billy Stitchell, long-standing Caol Ila manager. A bottle will also cost £74.99 but will go on sale on Monday 24 May.

Both releases will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and will be limited to one bottle per visitor.

We only arrive on Saturday, what are the odds of it selling out before we get there?
