You might search out the threads that talk about the launch of this product in the UK. I think it fair to say people were underwhelmed.

I forgot to mention that I had this beverage at the WOW08 show in SF. And I liked it a lot. I found it very worthy.

And for $40. I think it is very well priced.

Well, visually I find the whisky and the bottle appealing. The soaring eagle really does add something for me.

The packaging is impressive, the contents less so, IMHO. A 1992 Signatory from a few years ago was nice. This OB just seemed a little flat and dull in comparison.

The US bottle is a better one.
