    Hello Liquor.com and anyone reading this. My first time here; excuse me for my lack of knowledge. I had the opportunity many years ago to enjoy a scotch that a friend had brought me from Europe. It was amazingly smooth and flavorful. Its name was Something Special. Yep, that's it. My husband has never believed me and I would love to find this product. Not just to prove to my husband that it exists, but to once again enjoy the smooth, rich flavor. When I say smooth, I mean exceptional!

    Anyone ever heard of it besides me?
    Thanks for listening.

    Surely more information can be offered in spirit articles than what's provided here. Thats feeble.
    No tasting notes, or production methods, I hope all the articles on this site aren't so sparse.

    A great scotch for those of us who enjoy whiskies with a subtle flavor profile. I keep a bottle at home and enjoy it neat.
