August 28th - The General Release Corryvreckan was reviewed by Tim Forbes from The Whisky Exchange Blog. The RRP was announced at 70GBP for the UK, causing some lively discussion about the price for the Corryvreckan. Over on Gordon Homer's "Spirit of Islay" forum, similar opinions were uttered throughout the weekend.

August 30th - John Hansell's "What Does John Know?" blog reported the US price would be $85, spurring even more comments about prices as well as opinions in general.

August 31st - A press release was posted on Kevin Erskine's "Scotchblog", reporting the price to be "around 60GBP".

What does all this mean? Do blogs and forums have an impact on final pricing consideration? Most would say no, but it's nice to see a coincidence like this once in a while.
