    Good deals(?) on Malt Trust releases

    I received an email yesterday, highlighting these:

    http://www.superwinewarehouse.com/r/...ky-17-year-old

    http://www.superwinewarehouse.com/r/...ky-28-year-old

    http://www.superwinewarehouse.com/r/...ky-18-year-old

    http://www.superwinewarehouse.com/r/...ky-19-year-old

    http://www.superwinewarehouse.com/r/...ky-18-year-old

    Anyone know about Malt Trust? Or maybe even tried any of these? I think I'm going to grab me a couple but I'd like a little more info beyond the taste notes provided at the site.

    I've never tried an IB product before and from the little I've read online, the results can be very mixed...

    I think they are from an indie bottler in Miami that stopped bottling 3+ years ago.

    I tasted a few, can't remember if it is any of the linked and they were reasonable good (85ish on the common scale). The Glen Grant seems like a bargain to me

    I've got a Mortlach 17yr Malt Trust that I picked up in Chicago recently. I paid a bit more than the regular prices in your links but I've not seen any others around, ever. I'd say at the prices listed, they're pretty good deals for the most part.

    I haven't tried it but I agree with their brief description of an independent bottler. They are very tastefully and handsomely packaged and seem to get decent ratings from 80 on up from bottling to bottling. I'll probably open mine in the next few months.

    have fun,

    Thanks! I went with the GG, Auchroisk and Strathmill. I couldn't get them all, and since I can find Macallan standard bottlings around me, so those were the easiest to cut.
