Terrific. Good company to buy from.
Good, quick service. Fine scotch, very smooth, for those who like the peaty flavor of Islay malts.
End to end process
Purchase was seamless and very easy even over the Christmas and New Year's Holiday. Bottle arrived quickly and very well securely packaged. Overall from start to final package was great.
Solid scotch and good service.
