At £160 (roughly £53 a bottle) is this worth getting for some Christmas sherried goodness or look elsewhere for better value?

Thanks in advance for the advice folks.

They do sound good on paper and a ggod price for 3 single cask whiskies, SMWS 35 is Glen Moray, 1 is Glenfarclas and 115 is Knockdhu (An Cnoc) Distillery so if you like these distilleries then go for it.

Having little experience with SMWS. Do they tend to stick to bourbon and sherry cask finishes?

They tend to be more full term maturation in a single cask AFAIK

Thanks all. I ended up buying them. I haven't tried any yet though. I have too many other bottles I need to get through first! Top Malt
