New releases, tried any of these yet?

I am interested in any new arrivals / unusual bottlings. Has anyone had any of these yet?:

Any Peerless bottling from their 'cask strength range'. They are not cheap but look very well presented.

The Signatory Edradour botting at 46% un chill filtered in the tin. The others in the range are excellent so I have high hopes for this 1992 Edradour.

[I had the Signatory port cask Port Ellen the other day (1st bottling). Interesting but not cheap at £90. Great presentation. What is it with PE though. Image]

Any McKinops (SP?) whisky

Any from The Bottlers range. I have a 30 yr Dalmore, 21 Cragganmore and 16 Glen Elgin open at the moment and they are stunning.

Any from the Douglas Laing Platinum range of Fine and Rare OMC. I have had three now and they have been mega quality.

Well, sorry to spoil your hopes but unfortunately this one is not as good as for example the Highland Park 1988. Tried it this friday and it seems the middle cut was to wide... Smells rubber and tastes a lot of perfume.

Damn, I thought it might have been worth a punt. Thanks for the info, save me £40. The new dob was good though.
