I took advantage of the reduction in the Bushmills 400th Anniversary blend (back to original rrp) to make a purchase from TWE. So i ensured i opened the package outdoors, and out came the damp cloth to wipe the annoying polystyrene dust (from the cheap polystyrene peanuts they package with) from both the bottles and the boxes -- inside and outside as they stuff more of this contaminant inside of the gift boxes. Not sure i'll be ordering from them again, besides, prices are ever more unfriendly and so is the selection.

The Girvan is esoteric, amazing, and delicious. I'd be curious to hear what you think of it. That was actually my favorite of the Sovereign barrels K&L brought in.
