April 1st 2011 - Joke
Following joke was put on the whiskyforum.se whiskyforum.se

Glenlochy - first come, first served
When Glenlochy Distillery, Fort Wlliam was closed in 1983, along with many other distilleries owned by SMD, large quantities of whisky was left in the two ware houses. The whisky in the store at the distillery was used relatively quickly, but some whisky at the ware house on the other side of the railway (closed Nevis Distillery) remained. Some of this was sold to an unnamed North African country. In connection with the revolt in several of these countries, this lot was now found in a storage room. A Spanish company bought up the lot and will market it. The content will be poured into a gift box with 3 x 200 ml: Cask # 1510 Distilled 1965 Cask # 2468 Distilled 1968 Cask # 4227 Distilled 1974. Regauging of the alcohol content will be made when bottled. The Spanish company can not, due to political reasons indicate from which country the bottles come from, but they are now in Barcelona. The price is not fixed but would you like to make an inquiry (not binding) please immediately email manuel@glenlochy.com

Many showed great interest.....
