Anyone here has tasted this yet?
I have my bottles already but I'm still waiting for my sample.

From what I have heard and read so far there might be hope for this to be a "good" one after quite a bunch of average NAS bottlings...
P.S.: still on special sale at www.drankdozijn.nl for 75 EUR. Official announcements had me believe that the price is way above 100 EUR.

Travel retail price is around EUR 150. There were some good reviews by David Broom and Serge Valentin. I haven't tried it, I am doubting to purchase it or not as I think it's still quite expensive for a NAS.

Could you specify where the review by Serge Valentin can be found? It's not on his website whiskyfun.com...

My apologies, I am mistaken and mixed some things up. Serge didn't review it yet...

I tasted this yesterday. Not bad at all, probably the best of the current NAS bottlings.
On the other hand, it appears to be designed for "drinkability" rather than complexity.
Compared to the 18yo (old bottling before 2012), the Neist Point doesn't stand a chance, in my opinion.
Okay for my purchasing price (75 EUR) considering today's market prices, but I would not recommend it at a price above 100 EUR.
