Has anybody tasted and independant bottlings recently? I'm after something that's available to buy now, that's been sampled by someone. Any recommendation would be great, just to remove some of the risk that comes with indie bottlings.

All reviews. There isn't much I don't like as long as the quality is there but I've not got much experience with indie bottlers. The ones I've tried are discontinued so any help narrowing my search in today's market would help.
If you are not in the US, some of those questions are moot. But that might be better because the EU is often much looser with shipping rules, and there are many great shops in the UK. Also Whiskybase Shop is a great place to order from online too.
My recommendation is to consult websites with tasting notes of whiskies to make your own choice, if you cannot taste your whiskies at your retailer.
Alternatively, you can to to whisky fairs to help you to make your choice.
Duncan Taylor also have interesting bottlings. I'm especially fond of their Rare and Auld and the Rarest of the Rare series. Their Inverleven is a true diamond but hard to find now.
I'm not impressed by Provenance and Coopers Choice, but perhaps I just haven't tasted the right ones yet.
