    Not tried it Jeff. It's a vatted Nas malt. Supposedly glenturret and some macallan and something else vatted up in a butt for 6 months. I guess it will be fairly inoffensive, and may be quite pleasent. At price it might be worth a try.

    The something else is Highland park and Glennroth. They are all supposed to be Speyside Scotch going into the blend.
    What is a Nas malt?

    Having a drink early.. Might settle my breathing, or that's my excuse

    Lochranza Arran Bodega sherry cask.
    This is a young but potent dram at 7years in sherry and out of cask at 55.8%.
    Lots of sherry in this and some strong floralness on nose too behind it.
    Strong so will get a little water but what a nose

    May improve with air this too

    This bottle is very hard to find so I picked it up when I had the opportunity.
    It was being held for someone who never picked it up.
    It is harder to find than Weller and like Weller always demands a premium on top of retail.
