Yes, it's what everyone is saying, I can hardly wait to taste it!!!
I've just "special ordered" mine so hopefully I'll get it next week! And maybe if I find it on the shelf in Bergen when I visit I'll have to grab another since it sounds so great! Really looking forward to this one!

That's fantastic Jonathan, hope you get to sell it at Herman soon. The only thing that bothers me slightly is the fact that once again decided Horeca should get it before private custommers :x

Actually, I'm not sure about that. The importer told me the VSD number, different to the government's Vinmonopolet number, so I've emailed the Vinmonopolet my "special order sheet" for it. It's what I did for the Highland Park single cask, and actually I ordered it as a private party. I'll email you the sheet with the info Mr Fjeld! But I'd guess it will make it to the special whisky shelves in Bergen soon!

Here's hoping it will be available at Altona on Thursday :thumbsup:

Gosh, wouldn't that be nice! I'll definitely be on the hunt when we get to Bergen, and get it if I do find it!!!

My Ardbeg Renaissance arrived together with an Aberlour 16. I did open the Aberlour and compared that with the A'bunadh batch #16. The 16 has more peppery taste and not as much of a sherry to it. The color is just about the same, deep golden color. I prefer the A'bunadh. The Renaissance is still unopened, waiting for an opportune time.
