Fake whisky

Fake port can be an expensive matter, but not on the scale of fake whisky...

Two things stand out for me in that article.

1. Someone bothered to fake a 100-year old bottle of whisky 25 years ago. Though I suppose that does actually make some sense since I'm getting old and 25 years ago isn't as long ago as I think it is.

2. The hotel performed the investigation and voluntarily refunded the customer without the customer even knowing there was a problem. Now that is customer service! I can only hope that someday I have the chance to visit the Waldhaus am See and taste some whisky to support their business.
