This is truly an exquisite single malt. The flavour is light and delightful, almost a bit of a hint of licorice. I love it.
This was a gift to my brother who is a big fan of single malts and has been for 60 years. He said this was exquisite and likely the best he's ever tasted. He pushed it far to the back of his cupboard so that it lasts longer.
This IS a fine single malt! Thank you to the staff at the company for their incredible assistance in making this a reality! Most befitting the excellent individuals that I had the honour of serving with on the best Fighter Squadron in Canada ever!
A fine, smooth whiskey befitting a storied squadron. "CHECKER CHECKER' indeed!
A fine quality product and a fitting representation of the finest fighter squadron to grace Canada.
Very surprised I will buy again.
Whiskey is a great quality as is the write up regarding the Squadron. For those who haven’t, I recommend the whiskey, for those who have, “checker checker” savour and enjoy to the fullest. Huge shout out to Neil for putting this together.
"AMAZING on the road"
