This is one that I am super keen to try. It always seems to rate extremely well (in 2010 Jim Murray gave this a 95). I almost wish they would put the price up, so that it wouldn't always be sold out everywhere. When the distillery keeps on having to say "we are sold out for the next 6 months" you know two things... Its good, and they arent making enough of it!

@Peatpete, McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt is not just good, it is excellent. Good luck with the search. Please check my review of it on my profile page, page 7.

Insanely jelous, Scotchpro! And did you arrange for them to hold aside a bottle or four for you? I do not suppose from your tour you were told, or remember, what sort of quantity of whisky they make per year?

I did not ask about his numbers however he did say he turned down someone who wanted to buy the entire next batch!

@scotchpro1, did you sample any of that Clear Creek Douglas Fir eau de vie? That one really intrigues me.
