    I was a lucky boy and found the 15yo in my local bottle shop a few weeks back. I'd like to say you're not missing anything.......:p

    Arran Bodega or Bothy would be on my shortlist at c.£50.

    Is that the one you have?

    Mine bought recently from MoM is bottled at 59.1%. I know there are different bottlings but I have not done a comparison of them.

    No, that’s a library picture. Just checked and mine also is 59.1% and the first of its kind that I’ve tried.

    TBH I take reviews like that with a pinch of salt

    I've drink plenty of NCF/non-coloured whiskies and CF/coloured whiskies and never had an issue with them

    It's all about the taste and linger for me; so it's nice to dabble in something completely new for a change ;)

    Well he says "you can taste the colouring"...

    TBF Whiskybase Users are a lot more positive:

    Would be interesting to put the Signatory up against the OB. ;)

    And a 7.5 from WW:

    ...the 3 from Malt-Review may be an outlier.

    For me, that's bollocks.

    I've seen a lot of similar reviews; I think it's just snobbery snwoflake shite :D

    Well E150 is basically caramel so, in theory, it should be present as a taste component.
    More to the point the Signatory has 3% more alcohol and is over a tenner cheaper!
    Bourbon vs sherry cask matured though...

    Yeah; I tend to stick to the sherry ones at that price. Find the bourbon ones a bit too hot at times, but still worth looking into

    I do get the caramel side of things; but to say that it can be tasted in a complex whisky IMO is nit picking...

    Some folks, like Ralphy, have already made their minds up before tasting if the whisky is chill filtered and/or has colouring.

    I don't personally care - especially as one of my very favourite whiskies (Lagavulin 16) has artificial colouring.

    Exactly this; as said, IMO it's just bullshit and snobbery...

    And Laga 16 has to be one of the best drams out there IMO :D

    I’d put money on betting that the head distiller at Lagavulin thinks Lag 16 would be even better non-chill filtered, natural coloured and 46%...but, it’s a huge brand, and too popular to rock the boat. People expect consistency, they aren’t aiming Lag 16 at the whisky geeks. How many whisky drinkers understand a Scotch mist is a ‘good thing’?
    There is of course a huge amount of bullshit and snobbery involved in whisky, but people like Ralfy (who imo is actually very fair) should be applauded.
