    Had a bottle each of the Land and Sea as an Anniversary present a few weeks ago and am quite impressed.

    The Sea Cask is fine, if a bit bland, but is certainly drinkable and is pretty good value at £20.00.

    The Land Cask is really very nice. Much more substantial and well worth a punt  if you like peaty stuff.

    Anyone else had a pop?

    No one?

    I’m half a bottle in. My opinion hasn’t changed, but you are all definitely my best mates……..😉

    Not tried it, picked up a super sweet sherry cask in Duty Free

    Whats the casks on those? Any peat in them?

    Yeah Mike, the Land Cask is quite peaty, much more my kind of thing.

    The Sea Cask is a typical Speyside, but non the worse for it,  really ‘nice’ but just not that memorable.

    Worth a pop I’d say – definitely worth trying. I think they’d make a great introduction for someone getting into malts.

    I’ve not seen them in the supermarkets yet which is where Grants normally stock, I might give the land a go if I see it

    If you like the land one then the famous old grouse ‘black grouse’ sounds similar for about the same price – apparently it’s mostly Highland Park with a few other things in, I quite like it for what it is

    Aerstone is in my two local Tesco stores. its £20

    Got a bottle of the Sea Cask on the shelf. It’s ok but for £20 it’s a good buy.

    I’ve just got another of the Aldi jobs; not bad.

    Tried the Land Cask. Quite good. Prefer the Lidl Islay  malt though.

    Recently been experimenting with blends and am most certainly enjoying The Peat Monster from Compass Box.

    I’ve never remembered if I’ve enjoyed the whiskey I’ve drank.

    The sea cask is imo really excellent for the price, sure it’s a bit “boring” but the price is interesting enough. I’ll keep some nice stuff by for when I want interesting, or some crystal.
