Has anyone tried these or have anything to say about them?
I saw them in the local liquor store and the label initially turned me off. It's kind of "folksy" and looks small time. And I'll admit that the lack of a Glen-whatever in the name created unease; I mean, where's the storied history? But I acknowledge that I'm kind of dumb about these things.
So anyway I came across an interesting article about these whiskies:
"In 2002, Scottish brothers Jon and Mark Geary approached David Robertson, former master distiller for the Macallan label, about creating some whiskies that ordinary people could relate to."
Hmmm. Seems like good credentials.
Then I look them up in the Bible and Murray likes them. "The Rich Spicy One" gets an 89 and "The Smokey Peaty One" gets a 92 in the Scottish vatted malts section. And over in the Irish single malts section "The Smooth Sweeter One" scores 89.
And the price isn't obnoxious either.
So, I'm intrigued. Thoughts?
