I've heard that it is more than decent, a replacement or successor of their earlier Longrow CV that was very well received.Longrow Peated is decent as well

I need to keep the possibility of picking up some Canadian whiskey on the horizon somewhere as it sounds v interesting. Also the ABVs quoted for the Alberta Premium are something else ! Wowzers.The Arran Sherry Cask sounds very promising Graeme. I have also grown to like cask strength whiskies and their undiluted flavour profile. I have not had the Glenfarclas 105 in quite sometime but will make amends if I get the chance.
Canadian whiskey tends to be on the sweeter side and not because of any sherry influence. I am usually not a fan of the style. However, there are exceptions, and one of them is an all rye expression from Alberta Premium bottled at cask strength. The first ever cask strength release was in 2019 and it was given the nod as the world's best whiskey of 2020 by Jim Murray. I was fortunate to have tasted it and acquired an extra couple of bottles before the award was announced and, not surprisingly, completely sold out. That release was bottled at 65.1%. The second release was bottled at 66% and though it too was quickly sold out I was fortunate to have found a single bottle in a store in our local China town. This one is bottled at 66% alcohol. If we were living in the same town I would love to have shared it with you.

Update - this whisky is as good as I had hoped and well worth picking up.I have just ordered Arran Sherry Cask NAS 55.8% as a blind roll of the dice as the natural presentation appeals and the provenance of the casks appears to be first rate so I am confident that I will find it interesting and quite possibly like it a lot. I have been searching for sherry bomb NAS whiskies that are a bit more reasonably priced.
