B - I haven't opened it yet! I don't have a space within my self-imposed open-bottle-limit yet!


Wow... there's a man that sticks to his principles... I would have ripped the box open at the mailbox and taken a swig from the bottle!! :o

Cheers,

I got that same card, sent an e-mail, no reply as of today (although to be fair, I haven't checked my home account yet. . .)

I'm guessing - SOLD OUT!!

A picture of their dog Shortie with a space helmet on. It's kind of cute really. Not sure I understand the point of the postcard though....

I managed to obtain a Committee bottling from eBay, and purchased the new official release (black labels) from The Whisky Exchange.

Both bottles are sitting on a separate shelf with the Corryvreckan.

I was fortunate enough to sample the Supernova in a whisky shop, and it was very impressive. I didn't really have the chance to really nose and appreciate it I think.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did it set you back at duty-free? I'll be flying through Changi in a couple of months, wonder what the chances of them still having it is...
