We DO have a voice!September 24th, 2010
Yes, we are being heard!
Back in June, I reviewed a Chieftain’s 25 year old Port Ellen whisky. You can see here that I gave it a good review, but not a great review.
In the review, I wrote “I think bottling this at 46% without chill-filtering, or perhaps even cask-strength, would have helped the flavors “zing” (and elevated my rating).”
Well, two days ago I received this note from Chieftain’s importer to the U.S.:
“Based on your previous Chieftain’s reviews, we decided to take your advice and bottle all future expressions at 46% or cask strength. We have a few scheduled to be bottled in mid October. I will keep you posted and send the samples for your review.”
This is great news! Well done, Chieftain’s!
