Study finds 1/3 of vintage scotch to be fake

More than a third of vintage Scotch whiskies tested at a specialist laboratory have been found to be fake, BBC Scotland has learned.

Twenty-one out of 55 bottles of rare Scotch were deemed to be outright fakes or whiskies not distilled in the year declared.

The tests were conducted at the East Kilbride-based Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC).

I heard this on the radio. Bordeaux, DRC, Scotch, when the money for a bottle gets that high, it’s inevitable.
