Fake Japanese whisky

The sad denouement to the story about the "Rare Old" Japanese whisky is that Serge Valentin has discovered it was fraudulently filled by some Ebay conmen. The bottle itself was genuine and still fascinates me but the fraudsters bought it empty from a legitimate seller and hiked its price by filling it.

For more on this and the resulting "War on Whisky Fakers" that Serge has launched please visit the war room.
