Having ordered the first of the series, (which is very good...very well made, and without a doubt the best looking 'viewable' account of Islay, it's whisky's and it's men. I mean that I have yet to see a DVD or video about whisky that looks as professional as this)... right when it came out...I deceided to wait for the rest of the series and buy it 'in bulk'...which is what I did...butt that meant that I had to buy the first DVD all over again and ended up with two copies (one has found a home with a good friend of mine
)... so, when I received an invitation to give my remarks, I did. I asked if it would be possible to maybe allow customers to order the DVD's, but 'assemble' the order themselves, as to avoid having double copies.
Seems for some technical reason, this is not possible...however, the very customer-friendly guys at "the Malt Project" proposed to compensate me by sending me a FREE copy of the 'speyside festival'-DVD (that was the one volume that I did not owe)... and they duly delivered!
Now, In my book this is super service!
Maybe the DVD's seem to be a bit expensive, but remember, these are professionally (not the amateuristic looking things one sees otherwise)made DVD's, on a relatively non commercial subject. On top of that, most episodes contain 2 DVD's... I think they are very good value for money!
The only minor downside is that the real 'anoraks'
among us, may know most of what is said, so, as a 'learning' experience they have their limitations, but being so well made, with the enthousiasm apparent in every episode...they always make me smile, and make me wanna go back to Scotland over and over again, and -most importantly- for some strange reason
they always make me wanna poor me a dram!
I am a very satisfied customer, and I think these guys deserve all the 'accolades' they can get!
