I just have to tell this story. I visited Islay in the beginning of March, and had a tour of the distillery. At the end, there was a whisky-tasting (as usual) and I got to taste the Almost There. It was fantastic, and I could have killed for a bottle. But there was no way I could buy one, since the release was later that month.
But, Mr Fjeld and Di Blasi, they told me it would come up for sale in Norway as well, so we will just have to cross our fingers.
