This is an interesting Travel Retail only bottling which has gone mental at auctions with people paying around double the £300 selling price which is crazy especially as it's still available to buy.

We've all considered making our own blended malts, and some even do it using the heels of bottles or samples to make their own and then there are companies like Robert Graham who do it for you as part of the Living Cask series.

Most of the whisky I've had from this distillery has been in ex sherry casks but this ex bourbon from distillery 27 really does add a fresh fruity tropical note that I wasn't expecting.
