    I may be wrong, but I think this is called 'viral marketing' Suckers

    Other than a Daily Fail link, is there anyone actually worth their salt who has verified this is a top notch Whisky? It's not just viral marketing, this is blatant bullshit

    The top notch claim comes from Jim Murray, wikipedia page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Murray_%28writer%29 Selected quotes from that page: "Having visited his first distillery, Talisker, in 1975, it is believed that he has since visited more distilleries globally than any living person" "1994 saw the release of Jim Murray's Irish Whiskey Almanac, the first of many popular whisky books that he would go on to write in securing his place as, arguably, the world's leading authority and most influential on the subject" "Murray won the Glenfiddich Whisky Writer of the Year award on the three separate occasions he was entered for the competition. Murray is quoted as saying that he fiercely guards his independence and honesty. He says that he believes this can be compromised by writing for an advertising-dependent media." The guy makes his living out of writing about whisky, and it's him that rated this stuff at 95/100. I'd say a fair bet this is indeed decent stuff and not paint stripper...
