This warmed my soul. It did not last long at all, maybe a weekend between a friend and I?

It's nose was inviting, although it was my first time, it had such a sense of familiarity, it compared to the greatest of comfort food. I will say it was very easy to drink, maybe a little to easy. A very smooth texture and equal body were definitely the culprit.

Easy on the palate as well as the eyes with a very rich in color with a kind of shine to it. I loved it, I will add, that with drinking all of it over a weekend between two, i felt like a million bucks when the deal was done!

Nick Drake is a legend - superb music to accompany a dram.

I like drinking to Whiskytown too :-) especially Jacksonville Skyline.

It's such a dark velvety colour, I can't stop starring at the image. Its like burnt orange seeping into amber.

Late to the game here, but I will say I enjoyed this whisky (whiskey) on this night as much as any other time. Of course our city was on fire, ash falling everywhere and we needed some comfort. As Nick said, it did warm the soul. But this is a slutty drink Not for everyday. But something to have in the cabinet.

Had the chance to taste this... I loved it. Pity it was rather expensive to take home... I picked a Gordon&MacPhail Reserve instead...

I think those hand-written notes on the labels are meant to be suggestions of activities to drink it to, not activities being multi-tasked while it was bottled. For instance, mine says camping in some mountain range. Hopefully they weren't out there making moonshine! This is great stuff though. So smooth.

that makes so much sense. all i have ever seen on the bottles is listening to music or watching tv shows. the camping thing is awesome!

Aw, I bottle for them a lot; the comments are just that: comments. Sometimes (most times actually) we are listening to the artists on the labels as we bottle, but some of the distillers just want to say something different; I think they want to communicate the spirit behind the distillery. So camping in the mountains fits perfectly. Or "Riding Horses", which I've seen. Or "Mashing In at 6 am". I've even seen "My Job is More Fun Than Your Vacation".
