I purchased this bottle several days ago, and am curious after watching a few youtube videos if only the Canadian stock says "non chill-filtered" and "natural colour" on the label....it seems that bottles purchased elsewhere do not make this claim; Can anyone confirm?

A fantastic whisky and a new favourite. On the nose, and without adding water: the sherry really comes through, complemented with notes of honey, almond and a sweet floral quality. at 43% ABV, this whisky is full-bodied, sherry on the palate, along with hints of maple syrup, and undertones of oak and fruit. As I thoroughly enjoy the taste of sherry I sincerely recommend this scotch to anyone who also appreciates sherry cask maturation.

The finish is long, and tends to increase in sweetness while the sherry notes linger.

A great whisky, and for the price (about $59.00 CAD), highly recommended!!

I assume that this is the new bottling (12 YO Original, 15 YO Revival, 18 YO Allerdice). The new bottles do list that they are non-chill filtered and naturally colored. Red label? Red tube? BTW, I agree. Really good stuff at a good price point.
