1. It was MADE to drink.
2. It's a VERY tasty whiskey, indeed.
3. You'd be depriving yourself of a delicious taste experience if you socked the bottle away.

I've tried it various ways, from straight-up (small sips are the way to go if you choose this option) to diluted with water (not too much, though) to on-a-rock in the heat of the summer. A flavour profile unlike any other spirit.

x3. I will add that I prefer it neat but you probably should take small sips. Nice purchase.

The William Larue Weller is definitely worth a try, especially if you have never had it before. :iwbrnt:

I've never tried it and this makes me what to drink it. There's a lot of self indulgent waffle in whisky circles. Nice to see someone just get straight to the point.

The BTAC bottlings are all fantastic. Simple.



edit: removed a lot of self indulgent waffle.
