Anyone else pick up a bottle ? I just got in the latest offering (5yr) and it is fantastic - lots of promise.

I've been meaning to pick up one of the seasonal releases, but the 5 yr sounds great. Thanks for the heads up!

Agreed - I was fortunate to find it right around the corner from the office. My thoughts fwiw:

Stating the obvious - its a very young whisky....You'd be best serviced by pouring yourself a dram and letting it sit for a good 10mins, also leave the cap off the bottle to get some air in there. I haven't decided yet if I prefer it neat or with a dash of water. The alcohol is surely there; but not enough to discourage drinking it neat...I do find a drop of water brings out some oily textures which I enjoy.

Hopefully you can score some. They just released a sherry aged offering that for the moment looks almost impossible to get.
