60, 100, 200... oh my dog...
10-15 years ago I had a habit to buy a kilo of good tea(s) from China. It cost me USD 100 monthly. But in the mentioned epoch RUR/USD was about 30. Now it's 80.
For now in RU, it's hardly possible to buy the Scotch you really like even if you have money: nobody imports it in bulk.
Still I have some "averagely interesting" remains in my small collection... and sometimes, "the cheaper — the better" rule works for me. Talking of the Orkneys, I prefer Highland Park 10 to Highland Park 12yo. The last one so far seems to me somewhat crazy mix of Talisker and GM Lasanta. Non-compatible approaches.
So, if I look to "invest" in some interesting bo'le, I care more of technology and not price

The name clearly implies somebody is ruffling the feathers of status quo.
The legend associates its name with the invention of a special solution for treating sheep wool before shearing to eliminate small insects. This remedy was based on arsenic, which had a strong odor. The "Sheep Dip" label was giving the green traffic light to the barrels which were used by smugglers to smuggle whisky because there were no inspectors willing to check the preparation for cleansing sheep of parasites.
So, the story of the name formation is more or less like Monkey Shoulders, isn't it?
