It was R1 438.50, but that excludes shipping and duties.Please provide price on this
Seems like customs only adds 15% for vat, bonus.It was R1 438.50, but that excludes shipping and duties.
I bought 5 bottles in total and shipping was R943.69 in total, with R 1085 for duties and taxes.
So I'd say about R 1900 for the bottle, if I divide the shipping and duties by 5 each...
Thanks, it's fun to share the experience, I'm glad that my nose and palate are improving at one point I couldn't tell Glenfiddich 12 from Tullamore DEW 12, and my fiancée is much better at tasting whisky. This could have even been a fluke but either way it was really fun.This is quite an in depth review..... Even more impressive is the ability to identify and isolate those characteristics as well as being able to identify the different whiskies in a blind tasting.
This is exactly why I love whisky, it's very much a journey and you do notice differences along the way, and mood certainly changes how you feel about certain whiskies. I long to get more subtleties out of these, I find that much more challenging with peated whisky, I only occasionally get a pear like note in Ardbeg 10... With this I did get overwhelmed by the peat, to such an extent I really thought I tasted a bit of classic laddie in the longrow peated!I could taste a whisky a month apart and find different flavor profiles, love it at one time, hate it the next or vice versa. I prefer comparative tastings to figure out the differences but it gets overwhelming very fast.
A mate was accidentally supplied a sample of this year's release at a tasting a couple of weeks ago. He says it's good.
Simple mathsNot sure how you reached that conclusion?
You definitely pay duties on the total % of alcohol contained in your shipment.
I did not buy 5 of the exact same bottles at the exact same price, so that led to your confusion.
Ouch, not nice. Thanks for the info though, will bear that in mind for future purchase.I did not buy 5 of the exact same bottles at the exact same price.
My total purchases was : R 4 533.82 on which I paid R 1 085 vat and duties...so about R 680 in VAT and about R 405 in duties and some extra hidden DHL costs.
Do you buy from MoM and/or Whiskey Exchange?Ouch, not nice. Thanks for the info though, will bear that in mind for future purchase.
I placed an order earlier in the year, 5 x Glenfiddich Winter Storm @ R2800 per bottle. Shipping was R1100. Paid R2500 in Vat and DHL clearance charges, I scored here because I was only charged VAT. I'm planning on purchasing more therefore the interest, will factor in your charges in when I calculate my future purchases.
I have used them once and they are on par with MoM. Some of their stuff are pricier, but then again others slightly cheaper.MoM. Have you used Whiskey Exchange, what was your experience?
Have you tasted it before? It has rather disappointing reviews it seems...
Campbeltown and Compass Box, can't do wrong with them. That Glasgow blend is such an easy drinking peated whisky, is that the 2 x 500ml bottles?
So far I haven't found anything cheaper at Whiskey Exchange. They might be cheaper on single bottle shipping though but I plan to purchase a few bottles when I'm ready.I have used them once and they are on par with MoM. Some of their stuff are pricier, but then again others slightly cheaper.
I used them because they had something I really wanted and MoM doesn't stock that specific product.
But I prefer using MoM...they know me already and I get awesome service from them.
